No pictures to show, due to flat batteries, but Darling Hubby and I have been on a bit of a demolition derby in our house this weekend.
We planned to remove an accumulation of larger rubbish that the regular collection wouldn't take, also to remove a concret ramp leading to our back door, in preparation for a slab to be poured for our new patio. We ordered two rubbish skips, one to be taken away last Friday for the regular junk, and then replaced with a special concrete collection skip for us to fill over the weekend. All went as planned, except that the first skip was not removed.
So we did all the work we'd planned, and sat down for a well earned Sunday evening's rest. Darling Hubby looked down and said 'We should get rid of this carpet sooner, rather than later'. That was all the encouragement I needed, since I have loathed the living room carpet for years. By 8:30 pm, we'd rolled up the carpet and put it and the underlay into the overdue-for-pick-up skip. Glad they forgot to get it! We unearthed some rather tolerable floorboards, so now I need to get them clean. Darling Hubby has gone away for work (on a public holiday, grrr)
Needless to say, we're a bit tired today, after getting a little over excited with our skips. Darling Hubby says next time he'll order a really small one, so I don't get carried away trying to fill it.
