The hole in the ceiling



This is the hole in the ceiling. It’s been there for two months, and was a result of an unsuccessful DIY project.

I wish I could say it was for something complicated, like putting up a new light, or a loft extension. But all I was trying to do was put up a fire alarm. It was supposed to be a five minute job.

Anyway, I haven’t been able to fix it as it’s right outside the boy’s room, and requires drilling and banging. And since I only get free time when he goes for a nap the hole is still there, serving as a constant reminder of all the things that I thought I’d have loads of time for that remain undone (and my general lack of skills).

So I write this blog instead. I’m fairly sure the noise of me tapping the keys won’t wake him up.
