Moving fast

This whole loft business is moving ridiculously fast. The builders have only been here 3 days, and they’re already a good distance along. The steel supports are in (a scary looking guy with a bull ring in his nose  showed up this morning, who turned out to be the welder), the frame of the new gable is already built, and we’re already having to give them instructions on the location of power sockets etc.

There won’t be any loft updates for the next eight days, owing to the fact that Ursula and I are off to Barbados tomorrow morning. Yes I know, sometimes it’s hard to be married to a national newspaper journalist. The children will be looking after the house and the in-laws, so that, combined with the builders in the loft, leaves me wondering if the house will even still be standing by the time we get back.
