Thanks for to my readers for all of the lovely comments. As I type, the place is topsy turvy as flooring is torn out, more being cut and laid and paint is drying. The bathroom and bedroom remain to be painted and cleaned and the cat is difficult to keep in as he wants to explore the mess. On top of this and other things, there is something going around and it has landed here. This is the end of week twelve. I had no idea when given the original estimate that things would take this long. I am taking to my bed until it too must be moved.
