house – day thirteen – get stripping
As we haven’t yet settled in at our new permanent residence, I haven’t changed doctors, so a routine blood test (fasting the night before), necessitated a trip across the river and a visit to our old haunts. Our current situation is still so novel, that we don’t feel particularly nostalgic for the area we lived in for 23 years, but there are one or two things we miss and one of them is our favourite coffee shop – Mono. Which we were happily able to visit today. Then onwards to Screwfix, to collect a wallpaper stripper and then on to Whitstable, to get started on the living room, clear out more crap and to meet Calvin, the plumber.
Once stripped, the walls looked to be in pretty good condition. We’ll see what we uncover as we move through the rest of the house.
