Just a quick post today as thrillingly we are plastering the sitting room! After almost a decade of having and latterly renovating a house in France its starting to become a home and the big sitting room which is being plastered over the course of a week by yours truly and her sidekick the OH is taking shape!
This is good news, great news in fact. We have pretty much completed the upstairs of the house – just a floor to lay on the landing and a bit more painting but nothing major. Downstairs is a bit woeful though. The breeze block walls are covered in plasterboard now but that’s as far as most of its got.
The bad news – as I am chief bucket washer and go-fer and he is the craftsman in that he does the real work of putting plaster to wall – he gets to choose the music that keeps us going. Today’s riveting choice includes “Songs that helped us win the war”. I bought this CD for him years ago as a Christmas tree gift as a bit of a laugh. Much to my displeasure he actually loves it and plays it – a lot. He is singing “Kiss me Goodnight Sergeant Major” at the top of his voice along with Arthur Askey. Every now and again a loud air raid siren plays in between songs. I just hope the elderly neighbours don’t hear it and think that the village is being invaded again.
As I am a sharing kind of person – here’s Arthur Askey singing his famous wartime ditty “Kiss me Goodnight Sergeant Major” – just for YOU!
