I'm still here

Ok, so it all went pear shaped, I had intended to blog more frequently once my events were over the last beirng last week, but things haven't turned out in such a way as I have nothing better to do than sit here and write drivvel.
We are moving house this weekend and yes we are packed and ready to go having to be out by Tuesday, however we have problems in the new house. Yhe builders arrived on time tuesday this week, unfortunatley the supplies didn't. The new shower cubicle ( which was ordered 3 weeks ago) was dropped and smashed at the depot and as yet we do not have a new delivery date, never mind the fact |I have a builder and a plumber on a daily rate waiting.
The plumber was unable to go into the attic to run new pipes on account that the floor of the attic was covered 2" deep with bat shit and refused to continue without a respirator. In the meantime we have to get people in to clear the bat shit but can not remove the bats - which I can live with. Then there were the flies. The house had been unoccupied for 3 months and when we opened the upstairs velux windows the whole upper floor filled with at least 1 million flies. We were hoovering them up with a Dyson whilst there were still alive and they were spinning around cyclic style even after the vacuum was turned off. We filled three dust containers full. Thank god they are now all gone. The garage which was going to be my studio has now flooded with all the excessive rain that we have had over the last 3 days and the mile long private road to the farm house floods like buggery and although this does not cause a problem to my 4x4, Bin's Mazda is suffering, I think I can forget all about car washes until the spring.
Anyway it's now time to go to the house and start painting and see what other disaters have occured during the day.

It'll be good to see you around Hungerford again. Give me a call if you need any help (apart from bat shit which I'll pass on, thanks!).
