I don’t like that I was so shouty and snappy yesterday.
Today things are a bit better. I’ve talked to a couple of the other co-op members, and it really does seem like us lot fixing up my room to make it more bearable is pretty much impossible in the near future. However, I can lend some money to the co-op, and get it back in a few years, and use that to hire someone else to do it for us.
Here are the things I’d like to do:
- Insulate the walls and floor to stop the noise from the hallway, adjoining bedroom and communal spaces downstairs.
- Have something nice on the floor.
- Have a little sink and draining board and worktop.
Elsewise in the house: Hannah and Lloyd are constructing a cheap and surprisingly simple ceiling-mounted pan rack; me and Sven and Flick moved the fridge downstairs, so now we have two nice and sensible fridges in the kitchen and can assign shelves; and the last of the stuff from the biggest house has been moved in, and loads of rubbish has been taken to the tip, so the house is still full of stuff but it is our stuff.
I still feel like I can’t deal with all the activity and noise and like there is no escape, but there is a meeting tonight so we can talk about it and hopefully plot things.
