Well, no one can say life is boring here in my flat! =D
I got home last week after a quarter of a year in the States (egads! Time sure does fly...), and Kenny very kindly came to pick me up at the airport. And he waited there for me, for more than an hour, because my flight was delayed out of Manchester. Due to fog (of course... what else?!). And even though he didn't get my text letting him know because he changed mobile numbers while I was gone and I only had the old one. He's the best flatmate, I swear. (And I'm not just saying that-- I mean it!) He did, however, warn me that the flat was a mess. But that he had cleared a path to my room for me. ?!?!
I knew he had been redecorating the lounge, and that he wouldn't tell me what he had done/was doing, in order to surprise me. But thanks to a few untimely repairs in the midst of the remodel (like coming home one day to find a huge crack from one edge of the newly plastered and painted ceiling to the other), things... um... weren't quite finished. I wasn't sure what that meant, exactly: 'weren't quite finished'. But oh, I was about to find out!
Behold, the entryway:
And my room, with a lot of the stuff that should be other places...
Of course, some things never change... Dillon is always *up* to no good, among other things.
And then there's the lounge...
New flooring, new walls, new ceiling... and soon, new skirting board and finishing touches. I like it, but it's definitely different. I'll post more pictures as we go along.
