Rick the painter has finished his work, and it looks just great.
Then he did me an enormous favour — a solid mitzvah that I never expected, and a service I would normally have expected to pay for. He helped me disassemble and move two large beds, swapping the queen-sized guest bed from the bedroom he just finished painting for the Victorian double I have been using since Edmund died. So the smaller bedroom at the front of the house, where the closet is crap and the street light shines in the window like the Eye of Sauron, is now the guest room, and I have transferred my flag into the freshly painted original master bedroom of the house.
I still have to put up curtains in there, but it’s not urgent. The window faces north, and none of the neighbours have jeezly great security lights to shine straight into my eyes when I’m trying to fall asleep.
It is now suppertime, I am drenched with sweat, and my Fitbit says that I have logged nearly 8,000 steps and climbed the stairs 15 times. I haven’t left the house all day.
