Despite staying up far too late last night I was up fairly early so I’d be ready when Neil arrived to install the new floor. He got here right at 10:00 and after a quick coffee went to work. Since they had to pull the old carpet up I took the dogs out for a walk earlier than usual so the 3 of us could avoid the worst of the dust.
After visiting the orchard we ended up sitting outside on the terrace of the pub and it was fairly cold. Luckily I came prepared with my black blanket for the dogs to curl up in – they don’t have enough fur to keep them warm if there’s any wind, so they were nice and cozy all wrapped up – Benny on the bench beside me and Mo on my lap.
By the time we got back to the house the carpet was gone and the floors were going down. By dinner time almost the entire room was finished, and does it ever look a lot better. Had a lovely meal of lamb chops with roasted potatoes and corn on the cob.
Watched the Tour of Lombardy that had recorded earlier – Nibali won in convincing style.
