my sister came to the city to buy some tiles yesterday. they're putting them in the bathroom at the shack. or rather, a profesh tiler is and you can only imagine the quote he's given them. omg. cost about five times more than the tiles. and they have to have him when it's convenient for him, not the other way around. they have to wait three months for the man to come and sand the floors. remember a while ago i told you she is having the huge cracks in the bedroom repaired? another massive expense. i digress, we picked up the tiles and had a nice lunch. then, we shopped until quite late. i was pooped by the time we got home. we picked up a few bargains and had a lovely, if busy, visit. she's coming again next wednesday but i'll be working unfortunately. i forgot to mention that she baked an egg and ham pie, which was delish. she also bought me down some organic eggs and some nice stewed apples. a friend with an orchard gives them a batch of apples each year and sis stews them. they are really nice. not too sweet.
