After a whirlwind visit to Scotland, (to the Gartnavel General Hospital to be precise. parking was horrendous...), we have come home and really pushed to put the house back to as normal as it can be.
We still have boxes that havent been unpacked as they are books and we have to find homes for the bookshelves first. A bit of a set back due to holes in carpet that look 'apparently' like a fault in the carpet itself. It looks like some one has used a knife and cut a stab mark through them, To me it looks like the fitters have accidentally cut through the carpet from the back and then pretended it hadnt happened. This is in 3 rooms. Not happy as I have to wait for them to take them away and send them back to the manufacturer and also fit the new ones that have been ordered. *le sigh*. First world problems.
Back to the books. Arent the bookshelves stunning in the picture above? Divine. At somepoint we will have a house where I blow the budget and have a whole room of shelves for books and a single chair and lamp right in the middle of the room. I can dream cant I...?
I am currently reading Tess of the D'ubervilles. Poor Sorrow.
What are you reading? I would like something new to read that I havent already, but I am at a loss of what to read... Please, nothing too violent, I dont like those ones.
Hope you are all well.
p.s. when we stopped in the services station as the drive was going on forever due to part of the M6 being shut, I went into a Costa coffee. Oh my word! £3.32 for a medium coffee, 2 hot drinks cost me £7. That is $8.90 (US), €7.94 and $11.74 (CAD). How can people afford to buy that every day?
Oh and there was a mattress in the verge. How did that get there? What went through those peoples minds? Lets take our mattress for a ride on the motorway, look it wants to get out, here looks like a good place...
