Moving paintings

I really must get all my paintings stored down at my studio. These are a tryptich of Jupiter. I need some work doing on the house, but I’ve got things hanging around that could be put away safe, they are up in the bedroom where I’m doing college work and everything is crammed together on one side of the room. Plus I actually have a commission. Someone contacted me. My first real job this year! I need to start getting things sorted out…. Spring cleaning – in late July. Perhaps I will get it done by September! In the meantime I need to get the college work done. The date for handing in work is soon. Help!

Builders?

As I reported a couple of days ago, my neighbour had had a new gas boiler installed and they drilled through into our living room knocking off some plaster.

The saga continues. This photo is of the boiler exhaust pipe, which the builder/plumber said was going to be fixed in place by his mate today. He’s used CARDBOARD to fill in the gap. The hole is right next door to us and if water gets in I don’t know what damage it will do! I’ve heard of cowboy builders, but not cardboard ones!

My neighbour is elderly and may not get the service he paid for. I don’t want to complain to him. But it the builders don’t come back I might contact trading standards or even pay for the work to be done myself.
