Some of you have been wondering about the state of our house, and if it's all back to normal.
So I thought I'd just give you a little update. In a word: NO.
We are waiting for two things: one, for Australian Builder to have time to fix these things, and also for us to summon up the fortitude to live through top-to-bottom construction again.
The one thing I think is cool is that you can see some very old wallpaper at the very top of the dining room wall. I'd actually like to get a better look, but of course I'm not up for ripping out more plaster.
It looks worse than it is to live with, except for the fact that my mother has a big rack of clothes in her sitting room because there's no point in putting them back in the closet with just a plastic wall between it and the hallway right now.
I also find it rather interesting to see some of the innards of the house.
Not so interesting that I'd have chosen this.
But now that it's all dry and there's no urgency, it's really not that bad. Just not so pretty.
