There were three of them. Yes, they have cloven hooves.

We went to the reclamation yard again today. We’re desperate to do something different with the floor in the living room. It was originally terra cotta tile (we were told) but it’s now cheap carpet over chipboard.

White cheap carpet. Or it was once. Ew.

We’re looking at brick or tile. Maybe wood, but only if we can get reclaimed wood that looks old.

I mean, of course we can get it. You can get anything at the reclamation yard. It’s whether we can afford it. (Drew Pritchard has a lot to answer for).

As for these cheeky chaps – no way to tell how old they are. Quite a few of the things we saw were made recently. In fact, they specialize in making furniture and remodeling kitchens using reclaimed materials.

Boris’ government continues to implode. More cabinet misters have resigned. No, I can’t tell you what will happen next. He might even survive.

And if you don’t know what’s going on with Dutch farmers, it’s amazing. You’ll have to go to social media to find out more, though. They have a tank now!

Those are some mighty creepy demons. Stoaty, have a look at “engineered recycled wood planks” they will be more affordable and wear as well as solid hardwoodand you really cannot tell that they are engineered. We’re adding a wing on the house and got good quality engineered for the same price a low quality hardwood…and they are woke.

Look at these babies…very high end of course…but we found a reasonable facsimile.

As one who had a Dutch Grootmoeder I’m not at all surprised.

Do you have to meet some sort of historic flooring standard (because of the age of your home) if you change your flooring? I had not thought about reclaimed wood. (I need new flooring, too).

It’s a Grade II listed building, Deborah, so in theory we have to get permission to do anything at all to it. In practice, the listings department has never seen inside and doesn’t know what it looks like. The current decor is completely ahistorical.

Since half the towns in Dutchland are somethingloo perhaps they can stuff their government in the appropriate places in the appropriately named towns.

We’re looking at the waterproof engineered wood floors too.
I have a whole downstairs to do because slab foundations LEAK.

The Dutch farmers have a tank, a battle tractor (looks like an armored semi), and pig shite canons. Store shelves are bare of perishables. It seems the farmers have the backing of the Dutch people and the world.

The Dutch bureaucrats don’t stand a chance.

Holy shit, Tim! I wonder if the neighbors were sick of visitors, or if they worried it would continue to be a target, or if the earlier blast made it unsafe. Probably all of the above.

Surprising they acted so swiftly on demolishing it though isn’t it?

It’s okay, I now look for agendas and conspiracies in my morning cup of kimchi.
