I am starting to be allowed to do things. Today I changed the sheets on the bed - fed the squirrels corn – and am allowed to walk one block to Tea’s Me for lunch. I was not allowed to feed the birds as this involves schlepping birdseed – which I am not up to at this stage.
I am still not allowed near the basement.
I very nearly did some dusting today but lost interest and had a nap instead. The cleaners come today so perhaps I will dust tomorrow. The cleaners only do the floors and the bathrooms which leaves quite a bit for me.
The first level of house across the road is nearly finished and I am looking forward to seeing level two go on. I can follow most of what they are doing and can answer Cate’s questions about why they are doing things a certain way.
I think boys know this stuff because they always watch houses being built but girls are busy buying shoes and frocks and have other important stuff on which to focus their attention. In Cate’s case she of course has to go to work so I am happy to watch the house for her. Anton the owner is often there and I occasionally go over and chat to him about progress. He clearly knows what he is doing so I have refrained from giving him any advice.
