The house needs renovation.
The day after I came home from holydays, I had to go to the work shop.
Usually I am happy when I go there.
But that day I was sad.
Because I had to pack the shop down and be out of the building for 4-6 months, while they renovate the building.
My landlord had been a gem and helped me out getting two movers to come and pack it all down and move it to storage, so my worries for my body and health all came to shame.
The guy on the photo was a really cool guy, effective, nice and a war veteran, that had found a new way of living, after having to deal with stress disorder and other side effects of serving Denmark. Even I am against war, I have a enormous respect for those who go to war for their county, and so I salute you guys.
So here the sad sight.
So sad, that I left for a walk by the water.
And the local café for a good brunch.
This also due to the fact I could feel the movers was in control, and that I was only a pain in the ass there.
So all ended up in seven or eight of these.
And finally inside the truck.
I waved good bye as they left, honestly I was ok, but with a wee tear in my eye.
The shop looks so small and dead now.
My cave all empty.
Think I better leave now.
This is the problem.
The metal beams holding the floors are rusted away.
So all floors will be removed completely and then new will be made.
So looking at the bright side, I will get new floors all over the place.
So back home looking at the bookcase.
Ok more than books.
Homer, Stanley no 62, Victor Hugo, Spiers, Johannes Møllehave, Stanley no 2, Dostojevskij, Div South Africa, Süskind, MaFe, Selma Lagerlof, Norris, Man Ray and even a tin with ‘uncle Ben’s mint balls’... Some of the favourites are there smiling at me every day, reminding me that it will be over soon, and that shaves will then fly and the smell of wood will over grow the smell of new floors and paint.
Perhaps I now will have the time to post some of all the un-posted blogs I have.
So I still smile, now just with patience.
