DIY Glory

It’s been a while since I’ve embarked on a DIY job around the house with quite as much success as the most recent one — laying and tacking down some new carpet in the front hall. The last job was a bike rack, which had to be abandoned after the 4-inch screws proved too loose and threatened to fall out of the wall, leaving gigantic plugs of Polyfilla in their place (I’m sure bad drilling had nothing to do with it).

This has all now been forgotten in the glory of the freshly-laid carpet. Now, every time I walk past the front hall, I have to stick my head in and check out the perfectly-fitted carpet with pride. This can only last so long before my next botch job, of course…
