So glossy. So black. So clean-able. Between the generally horrendous builders; finding a replacement glazier; measuring up; finding an electrician; sourcing black plastic powerpoints from 6 suppliers; finding a second electrician; remeasuring; finding a plumber; remeasuring... And then suddenly one Saturday morning, I filled my house with ridiculously efficient tradesmen and wound up sitting, drinking coffee, taking in my completely finished renovation at 10am. I almost teared up, but the tradies were cute and I thought they might judge.

#48. 10.10.10

Status: Complete-ish

I didn't really celebrate per se. But I remembered it was 10.10.10. I looked for cool events and was dismally disappointed. There was a vague eco-friendly scavenger hunt in a nearby park that I walked past, but... really?

I drank a toast to my senior maths teacher, who used to do something cool (cool for a maths nerd) with the date every day and hoped he was appreciating the day somehow. I also remembered thinking as a teenager that one of these 'cool' dates would be a good time to have a baby. Funny those moments, no?
