The stairs


It's amazing how long it takes to 'get round' to doing things around the house. The previous occupant was in a wheelchair and as a result the stair carpet has always been missing a section due to her stairlift. When we arrived there was a roll of matching carpet left for us in the hall and yet it quickly journeyed to the loft, not to be seen again until this week. I remember thinking that it was a top priority for sorting out and yet we quickly got used to the missing section. All it took was a couple of hours to redo it. Admittedly it's not the neatest job, but it's only temporary until we redecorate the stairs and landing. It does make the house feel much cosier.

I don'tr think you've really done it. I think it's a PaintShop Pro job - I cannot see the join!

How odd. I was going to say something similar to SS - only a day later (or is it - it's about a minute to midnight 16th UK time by my reckoning).

How very odd. The timing of the last comment is given as 15:59. It was 12:59 NZ time 11:59 UK time. So where does the 15:59 come from?

We're not that good!

Actually we replaced the whole width of the stairs, except at the very top and bottom as we didn't have enough carpet.
