some things

Some things:

  • We have run out of jam.
  • I was woken at 1.30AM by Betty presenting me with a field-mouse suffering from rigour-mortis.
  • I didn't get to the strawbale building course because the DASHED ear-infection thingy came back and suffering from nausea and dizzyness whilst climbing ladders and wielding lump-hammers seemed like a Bad Plan.
  • We have posted our mortgage application to the Ecology Building Society with a rough outline of what we would like to do and some costings.
  • This does not seem extortionate and is quite exciting.
  • We were supposed to have some people come and view the house on Sunday and spent three hours cleaning it out. They didn't turn up, but the house is still immaculate and I am afraid to put anything down anywhere, including my feet.
  • I am becoming a Reed Bed Nerd.
For today, that is all.

  1. A sure fire way not to run out of jam in the future is to make your own. Well, either that or become best friends with Eddie Izzard.

  2. Didn't turn up? DIDN'T TURN UP?! Bastards. I should have a good old therapeutic whinge at your Estate Agents about them. It won't actually achieve anything but it might make you feel better.

  4. Steg, surely a definition of a blog is 'a therapeutic whinge'.

    Make the most of the immaculate house, though. Won't happen again for a couple of decades...

  6. Ha ha - Not only do I do straw bale houses i also used to work for a water company as an engineer - my claim to fame is that I built the largest reed bed in the entire region.....

    They really are great and you can build them in a really low tech way (I did the really expensive high tech way) but you ban build the ditributor and level pipes out of standard drain pipes....

    I also build roads, bridges, railways and the odd tunnel.....

    Good luch with the eco house - if you need and eco architect then try ecotecture.co.uk I've never used them but they seem to know what they are talking about

  8. We used to have a cat who would wake us up in the middle of the night to praise her 'catches'. As Alice got older and her hunting skills waned she resorted to 'killing' lumps of catfood, leaving it at the bottom of the stairs and cat-a-wailing until one of us would come down stairs and acknowledge the slimy specimen.
