This was the view from my bedroom window as I woke up yesterday. It’s been cold recently, but this is the first time it’s got cold enough to snow. Things soon warmed up enough for the lovely white snow to become slush, and then puddles. Today it’s been a little warmer, enough at least to melt most of the snow on roofs where it had collected in sufficient quantity to hang around a while. You can tell from the photo that it’s pretty grey here at the moment. At least the white snow brightened things up for a few hours.
I’ve been working all weekend on the staircase from the living room to the bedrooms. After cutting a lot of pieces of flooring to the right size, I was working up to putting on the stair nosings. These will cover up the inaccuracies in my wood cutting and they’re also anti-slip for security. Turns out that the drill won’t get deep enough for the screws I’d bought without making a lot of horrible grinding noises, so I’m going to wait and see if I can’t get away with shorter screws. So in the meantime I have noseless stairs, but at least there’s no old carpet on the stairs any more for cat hair and dust to accumulate on.
