We had a bit of a mishap in the house yesterday.
Griffin was using my ensuite and he knocked the shelf on the wall... and it came crashing down...
So now I have to consider: replace or remove?
ABOVE: Do you think anyone will notice if I take the shelf away completely?
The glass shelf has fallen down before, and I'd hate it to happen again.
I'm thinking maybe I take the brackets out, plaster up the holes and paint the wall.
We are just so very lucky it didn't land on the sink and break it too!
I need to fix it TODAY, as tomorrow we are off to Hamilton for the day and then on Sunday we have our first Open Home!
So, it's not going to be a sit on me bum sort of day! And I've got a fair bit of washing to get done/dry and put away too.
Housework never sleeps.
Well, I have decided not to risk it. I'm taking it down and not replacing it. I'm now waiting for the plaster to set where the screws went into the wall...then I can sand and paint late tonight.
Hope nothing else gets damaged before Sunday's Open Home!
It's a gorgeous sunny day today. Shame it won't be on Sunday by the sound of it. Grrrr.
Funny thing! We rang Stew's sister over the other side of Auckland to let her know we were moving..... and it turns out so is she!
Her first Open Home is this weekend too.
Talk about funny.
She is moving to Wanganui, which is way down near Palmerston North, on the west coast! Rather her than me.
I've lived in Wanganui, Lacy was born there in fact. Khady will like it though, she's a west coast kinda girl.
I just had a massive hissy fit at the kids. Every time I turn around, they have eaten something at the breakfast bar and left a bloody mess.
And every time, I grab the dishcloth and wipe it up. WHY? Why the hell am I still doing that?
They are big enough to do it themselves, they just don't THINK of it. So. I just yelled my head off at them.
Maybe now they will do it and not leave it up to me?
Grrrr... feeling tired and crabby. Started vacuming and the bag is FULL. So I went down to Godfrey's and bought some bags, they don't actually fit the Kirby that well... but they will have to do. I kinda ruined one trying to get it to fit. It fits... but only just.
I might make my own at some point. With calico so I can re-use them. The 'real' Kirby ones cost like, $80 for 2. Bugger that!
Dinner is sorted, we are having ravioli in a tomato and mushroom sauce. It will only take me half an hour to prepare. Yaaa.
MY BAD. I know I'm supposed to be de-cluttering in readiness for moving, but while out just now I dropped more stuff off at the Hospice Shop, and saw a picture, and JUST HAD TO BUY IT!...
ABOVE: It's quite a big picture, and not in the best condition, but I thought I would cut it down a bit in size, keeping the little dinghy's and a bit of the scenery around them. The dinghy's are darling.
If I can't find a place for it in the new house, I can always donate it back to Hospice. *smiles*
My afternoon has been slow. It's so cold. Dammit, just remembered the washing is still outside, better go get it in.
Dinner is cooking.... plaster is nearly set... almost time to sand and paint.
End of Day: almost time to go to bed, but before that... sand and paint those patches in the ensuite.
