Well, they came yesterday and took it back out. And the plasterer has plastered the wall. Just the wall with the opening, not the whole chimney breast as promised. There's plaster dust and drips everywhere. *sighs* I'm not complaining again as it's going to drag on even longer. So I'm just getting on with it now. The wall will be dry enough to paint in 5 days. I've painted inside the opening and it looks ok. Once the stove is back in it'll look better. I still had 2 x 2.5 litre pots of unopened paint leftover from my old house (Dulux Natural Calico) so used that. I think I'll do the whole room that colour and save some money at the same time.
It's been a long week at school as I've got the first nasty virus of the new session. It started with a painful sore throat, on the day I had an observed lesson! I croaked my way through and got good feedback. Phew! Now it's settled into a full blown cold with a deep chesty cough. I've been dosing myself with cold and flu tablets, Benylin cough mixture, throat lozenges plus all my usual natural tricks. Hopefully it will pass soon. Especially as I'm off diet and drinking tons of honey and lemon!
