Chez Cow – under renovation

Due to an unexpected free weekend (thank you Ash Cloud of Doom (TM)) I finally got the chance to move into the new house this weekend.

So far I have:

a) a mattress (stolen, well, given to me by, a friend’s neighbour)

b) two wooden chairs and a small table on the balcony

      Well, what else would it be. One of the first things I did on moving was go to the local wholesalers and pick up a shed load of wine and gin. I have my priorities.

      I may not have a bed, but I have gin.

      The ending was annoying. It left so much unsaid which really pissed me off!

      Have moved onto the last of the Stieg Lasson books now which, as I predicted, I am loving.
