Whenever I work alone I keep myself entertained and occupied with podcasts or music, I have numerous playlists specifically for building and a lot of podcasts to get through. After listening to science podcasts I feel like I'm learning and working simultaneously. A good thing too because some building tasks are mind numbingly boring!
On another note, we are still trying to motivate our plumbers to come back as they have promised and fix our hot water. They were going to come on Friday or Saturday but there is no sign of them. It's been a long winter without a proper hot water service and the lesson has to be: take care who you take on as a plumber, no matter how nice, clever or helpful they may be, if they disappear for months on end they are useless! Changing plumbers halfway through a job is not ideal but it is now what we are faced with.
Enough of that, back to listening to the weather outside while I sit inside enjoying our house and its fantastic vibe.
