Come to think of it, as I was typing that, how can it be? We didn't move to this house till July 1999 so it doesn't make sense. The cupboard and the kitchen have benefited from the work, as have we. The boys start a fortnight of school holiday tomorrow, with only me at work. Even so, I'll be off on Wednesday, to have breakfast, go to the museum and go to the cinema to watch Pirates. But the excitement of the rest of the week will be saved up for my readers, many or few as they may be.
