This morning the builder came to repair the wooden floor in the living room. He decided, maybe luckily, that he only needed to patch the three areas of the floor where the wooden blocks have expanded and it wouldn't be necessary to take up the whole floor. Still the disruption is the same whatever he decided to do. For the umpteenth time we have the living room furniture in the dining room, pictures stored in the hall, curtains stored in a bedroom and most importantly the carpet is in the garage. At the moment we aren't sure when we will be straight again.
