Tomorrow, D returns to work and we will all resume our daily routines. Although we did not do many of the things we had planned to do, such as play tourist in our own city, we did have quite a relaxing 4 weeks.
I have a list of tasks that need to be done and Prue and I are going to start stripping the wall paper in the lounge room, in preparation for painting. It is much easier to do this while D is at work! We are still undecided about what we are going to do with the kitchen.Right now, we are considering moving it to the back of the house, leading out onto the deck and knocking out the wall between the existing kitchen and lounge to make it a good sized living room, with study nook. Of course, all these renovations are dependent on cost and will only be undertaken when the money is available, so a fresh coat of paint in the lounge will at least brighten it up until such time as any work can begin.
I am going to spend some time today catching up on emails and backing up my hard-drive (which is overdue), then packing away a pile of reference books which have been sitting on my desk for the past few months! I need to restore some order to my work space 🙂
