Les gens qui ne rient jamais ne sont pas des gens sérieux

Be who you are and say what you mean, those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind

Patience is a virtue...

...that I am sorely lacking right now.

No, the flat's still not ready.

A combination of leaky radiator pipes and walls that were even more crooked that we thought to begin with, has turned our few days at a friend's place, into a few days at a friend's place followed by a few more days at another friend's place, and a 'do you mind if we stay a little longer?'.

The lack of internet is annoying, the living out of suitcases is uncomfortable and the argument that plenty of people are worse off than we are; at least we have a roof over our heads, has stopped having any kind of effect.

I just want to live there. Now.

Oh, it is a shitty thing to have rennovations at your flat. Very, very, very. I don't think people really know what it's like unless it's happening to them. And then, just like the pain of childbirth, they seem to forget it.

I feel for you and wish to offer bucketloads of sympathy. Hang in there!

When I spent a summer in Krakow, I remember having to walk a plank over the floor tiles for a week. Something about them setting properly.

Hang in there, champ. This too shall pass.
