A Bit Of Brighton

Today my house is home to two workmen who are installing new windows, fascias, soffits, guttering, and a flat roof; this is day three of four days of work. My wife babysat the house for the first two days and I've got the final two days. The final two days… of TERROR! I don't like having strangers in my house. To be perfectly frank I don't like having anyone in my house.

So, to distract myself from the stomping, banging, drilling, more stomping, clanking, clanging, heavier banging, thumping, and knocking (feel free to add your own favourite onomatopoeic word here as it's probably happening too (not moo, though; that would be daft)) taking place in all the rooms I'm not hiding in here are a few photos from a short jaunt to Brighton that took place over the weekend.

Look at the pretty sea! And the seagulls! Ignore the scary men in the house! And relax.

  1. Hear hear.  I've got to have a cleaning lady come in tomorrow for a quote for a professional clean and I'm dreading it (it's a term of our tenancy agreement that we get pro cleaning before we vacate).  Luckily most of our stuff has been moved to the new place, but i still don't relish the idea much.

  3. Nice photos! :)  <rant> and, I feel the same way about strangers in my house. My worse experiences are with plumbers! They don't care about your carpets, tile, cabinets, walls, or your personal items. They blow in like a tornado and leave a mess like a tornado. </end rant> Hang in there! :)

  5. +Lori Palmer Next on the agenda is a new boiler but we've got a couple of plumbers in the family so we're less freaked out about that particular bit of work.

  9. Thanks +Steve Bachman; I, on the other hand, will be leaving my chair and visiting your country in 16 days' time, and not far from you either.
