9:44 AM -

A funny thing happened on the way to work yesterday. I caught up with a car traveling in the same direction as me, driving on the wrong side of the road. I beeped. I flashed my lights. All to no avail until someone else (a car coming the other way) reminded him. Fortunately there was a driveway on “his side” of the road for him to pull into. I didn’t need any coffee yesterday.

I just wrote this to the lady I work with:

“Thanks. I am looking at this spreadsheet now. I just wanted you to know how important it is to me…Having input all of the loads data manually this week, I came up with a reasonably definitive list of all the products from which I have been copying the product sizes. However, I just discovered that a Weyerhaeuser 72 inches is different from a Canwell 72 inches by a matter of 16mm! “

It’s a confusing industry – wood – especially when you sell to Yanks stuck in the dark ages.

The temporary floor has gone from upstairs! This floor was a platform for our builder to work from whilst he constructed the ceilings in the house. It has now been removed. It’s like someone took the ceiling away from the living room. Now the house is all open and airy again and I can finally love my new living room because we know what it will look like.

Get this – we also have… a washing machine!!!!!! Next time I do the laundry I will be able to do it with our own machine in OUR HOUSE – not sharing a smoke-smelling launderette with random people checking out my undies.
