Moving into a new house is always full of surprises; and when that house dates back to 1830, the discoveries can come thick and fast; so my word of the week is discovery!
We knew that the house would throw up interesting challenges… and so far it has succeeded in meeting that expectation.
Nothing major (yet), but the leak in one of the bathrooms that revealed a corroded pipe that had been repaired with duct tape was an interesting discovery! Thankfully I was standing next to the fridge when the water started to trickle down the wall…
There is no overhead light in the wee girls room, she has been telling us for the past week I no like this room…
The light in the upstairs hall doesn’t work which makes getting to bed after the kids have gone down, and the house is pitch black, rather interesting… Note to self, remember to leave the bathroom light on at the top of the stairs!
A random selection of sockets work… Only an issue when you leave your phone charging (or not charging as the case may be)!
Moving an old fridge to get access to replace a corroded pipe may result in driving to your old house at 11pm with bags full of food to put in the fridge there; and a bag full of ruined frozen food. Just saying.
How has your week been?
