Slowly, the floor in our lounge is being revealed. Books are on shelves, clothes are in drawers and hanging in wardrobes. Food is in fridge, crockery is in cupboards (both plates, both bowls, both cups, both glasses), cutlery is… erm, not in a drawer.
For some strange reason, the designers of our kitchen decided that drawers were just so last century that they couldn't bear to put any in. So I'm not sure what I am going to do with our various and assorted hand-held non-mechanical food preparation and eating tools, because they just don't really like being in cupboards.
I have a phone number. This is the first step in getting broadband, which I will admit I am missing dreadfully. Not missing the TV at all, though. Badly missing radio.
Location is fantastic. Half an hour for T'Other to get to work, 40 mins for me. Waitrose, Morrisons, Marks and Sparks, cinema and leisure centre all within a stone's throw. New Arsenal stadium possibly within rocket launcher range. Shame I don't have one.
Intentions to get fit, sort out diet, start writing (damn) book abound. All good, all somewhat resembling paving slabs. Or possibly cobbles. If it were up to me, I'd cobble the road to hell, just for that extra scrap of ankle-twisting-ness.
So, in short, I am a happy bunny. And who knows… maybe once we have internet access, I might blog more and attempt to regain my previous heights bloggy excellence. Or maybe you'll just have to continue putting up with this old shite.
What did I used to write about, anyways?

Suw, you used to write about your life, as you viewed it from the perspective of the one living it. It was great. (but why are we speaking in past tense?)
Regarding radio: http://www.pennradio.com/ and http://radiolovers.com/
Regarding storage: Why not pick up an antique piece of furniture that has lots of little doors, and in each put a plastic tub that can hold all the utensils and apparatus that go together.
Regarding cinema: Go see Natalie Portman's new film “V for Vendetta” (just released in the US … I don't know if it is in UK release right now or not). It is about a Guy-Fawkes-like anarchist in a future-time London. (But, he's an anarchist who *cares*.) I predict, depending on what happens the rest of this year in cinema and in politics, that 11 months from now the film will receive an Academy Award nomination for Best Picture, and 24-year-old Natalie Portman will receive a nomination for Best Actress. One word of advice though … don't research, read, or listen to any buzz in advance. Just go in blind, and enjoy what you find.
