I went to help Ms. J today moving into her new place.

Dom had helped her out earlier in the day with the packing-up down on the Harrow Road. It’s a bit of a β€˜lively’ area down there, so she said she was glad to be in this new place. The new place is a nice flat in a quiet building, on a quiet leafy street in Willesden.

Having only just moved today, the tasks she wanted help with were the essentials.

  • Hanging up clothes in the closet
  • Finding the kettle and tin opener amongst all the boxes so that she could have some tea and food.
  • Put the bed clothes on the mattress (which was still on the floor) so that she could sleep tonight.

As I was getting ready to leave, I noticed there were no blinds or curtains anywhere. After a long day of moving today and with sunrise at 5.30am tomorrow, I suggested we try and block out the light so that she might sleep properly. Ms J gave me some nice big red carrier bags, and I made a hideous, but hopefully effective job of blinding the bedroom window somewhat. The room had a sort of pink glow afterwards, which she said she liked.

Well done for going the extra mile to help Mrs J, Danny! I'm sure she was very grateful when the sun rose this morning.

Didn't see this had happened, Danny - looks great and I'm glad she had help on the other end πŸ₯³
I think bed reassembly may be on the cards soon:
