Today started with me being unable to finish breakfast because a Jungle Gym Construction Company arrived on site, and I had to supervise the boss and later BE the boss, because he left to get his car fixed. I fairly successfully worked out the design, where to place some of the extra bits we had, and most unreasonably insisted on parts that went skew being dismantled and reconstructed. We saved a lot by using various planks and poles I had accumulated and have been storing.
I had to fetch young J from her last day at her first school. Teachers and pupils were in tears. (Don’t bother to try and convince me they are lerners and edjakaters.)
Then, I was also constructing a safety handrail for steps on the other side of the house, figuring out that a curtain rail needs to be remounted skew if the perfectly sewn curtains by Much Better Half are to look straight when hanging, and finalising the cleaning of a pool everyone said was beyond redemption after recent storms etc.
All these things went pretty well, I think. (Handrail and curtains yet to be photographed.)
