Overheard in Passing...
They were sitting in the living room of the townhouse, discussing the disposal of said townhouse.
Tessie started with, "I have never liked this place. It's too dark and dank... I can take all of the furnishings out and put them in another bigger house...
Including the wardrobe that she insisted that I install when I was putting it together. She needed more space for clothes... Mind you, there is a walk in closet to the left of this. And she has another closet just for aprons in the workroom...
Her only complaint about the bathroom? Too small to swing a cat! I don't recall her ever trying to swing a cat in that bathroom... She can't even lift Kota. I think she must have been talking mini cats.
I rather like it there. It can be seen by all who pass.
I am not sure why she uses that as a measurement, but I am guessing that all rooms have to be at least 9 or 10 feet square?
Anyway, she has announced that she wants a NEW and BETTER house. To quote her, "I have outgrown this place. I need something grander and much more spacious.... I was thinking maybe more of a manor house. Townhouses are so small and boring... I want something that I can spread out in."
She continued with, "I think I want something more on the order of Zar's cottage... but larger...much larger!"
Tomorrow I go to see the doctors in charge. Maybe they can fake it and write me a note saying that I can't work on anything larger than a two room cottage... That might work if she doesn't see the 9 room kit that I have stashed under the bed... Wish me luck.
I am all for getting rid of the townhouse to make more room. I just didn't really want to build something twice the size to replace it!
See you tomorrow.
