The scaffolding went up today, and our loft conversion starts tomorrow.

One side effect of this is that there'll be no TV watched here till the loft is done (in 6 to 8 weeks time), as the scaffolding has buggered up the TV reception. I don't care, since the last episode of this series Doctor Who aired last week, but the kids are annoyed.

The scaffolding itself is really cool; we are considering asking them to just leave it up when they go. It'd be like having a three-story jungle gym at the back of our house.

Less cool is the fact that I am still ill (though I went back to work today anyway). I have made a doctor's appointment for Wednesday with our real doctor instead of the learner doctor I saw last time; will cancel in the event that I feel better before then. Also uncool is this unending rain. The washing we hung out the Saturday before last is still dripping weakly on the line. I would have hung it more symmetrically if I'd known I was going to be looking at it hanging there for weeks on end. Am starting to feel that we should be building an ark rather than a loft.

LOL we have had a fair bit of rain too, must be the in thing.

Hope you're feeling better soon.

Oh, a loft seems almost as practical to me as an ark. As the waters rise, you can just move upstairs.
