    The list is long and varied. I have made a very small dent in it though however even working from home in niche commercial insurance I have been surprisingly busy…

    Decorating the hall/stairs/landing is the main one, but now the plasterer can’t come and work in our house, so bullet dodged.

    Painting the kitchen.

    It only needs a coat to ‘freshen it up’ but the hassle of moving stuff, masking the edges etc while dealing with mealtimes with the kids at home will be a ballache.

    I got a list. I told my wife that because of our age and likely lack of treatment, there’s odds that we will not be alive in 3 months, so those jobs don’t matter. 🙂
