We haven’t had coffee for a fortnight now, I’m feeling guilty and frustrated with myself for not finding the time to write.   Partly due to procrastination, not making the time, not finding the time and chaos enveloping the house in week 6 of the kitchen renovation.

The builders are doing a great job of staying tidy, however they are spreading out bit by bit.  The inevitable rain came which added another dimension to the dirt and dust.  Old lead piping discovered, a concrete floor that has no more space for new piping adding more cost into the build resulting in the front garden being dug up.

Things have started to get better though, the beams have gone in with the props removed and plaster board starting to appear.  The sense of space is amazing and we are going to be very lucky when it’s finished.

Father’s day brought a long awaited copy of Five Quarters, by Rachel Roddy.  I’ve been pleasure delaying partly because we need the kitchen before I get stuck in and partly because I haven’t got the time to read it and grow with the experience.

Back to the coffee which is why we are here 🙂  Thank you for coming, it’s enabled me to drown out the xbox in background, to zone in and put some words down.  Today the coffee is served with pancakes a Father’s day breakfast request served with either sugar and lemon juice or Nutella with Bananas.
