As a follow up to yesterday’s intriguing blog, I did indeed cut up a load of wood yesterday morning whilst the kids played outside. It was a gorgeous day and I’m very glad I planned to do it because it’s really windy and wet today. Apparently it’s due to Storm Aiden today. I think I’ve done enough wood for at least a few days. My back’s twinging but I think it’s because of doing work I’m not particularly used to yet rather than an injury. It’s probably good for me.
I didn’t manage to paint the whole kitchen ceiling but I did manage to outline it and then did the rest this afternoon, so one coat is done! Saying I’m going to do it did give a bit of a push as well. So just need to do a coat or two of normal paint and then onto the walls. It feels good to be doing it, it’ll be even better when it’s done! The roller gave me a lovely coat of spatter which I quite liked.
And! big drum roll….!! The septic tank has been emptied and apparently it’s in good condition. It’s the first time Chris has been able to get a proper look at it and it’s ok. This, apparently is another of Chris’s skills, how sewage works… A neighbour organised the emptying and for that we are very grateful.
Chris thoughtfully got some photo’s so here they are 😀
It’s so good that it’s been emptied. Apparently we might be able to leave it another two years, at least one but hopefully two. So that’s another thing off the current list, although Chris still has some work to do clearing the outlet. It may also seem a slightly strange thing to be talking about, but we’ve never had to deal with a septic tank before and the emptying/maintenance of it, so it’s interesting to us! Specially when it involves our toilet not getting backed up! We also didn’t have a clue who to get in to do it, so again, big thanks to the neighbour.
