Floors and chaos and boxes. 

Chaos in the house. I'm finally getting real floors, with insulation underneath.

I had the materials lying around for a year, but no-one to put them in, and now the living room has been done, and the hall.
Next week the tiny room upstairs, but the bedroom will have to wait again, due to my brother-in-law's holiday being over (and my money spent - I pay him).

I've been rearranging my stuff for days and when a room is being done, all the stuff has to be stuffed into another room, so lots of stuff everywhere.
But I can finally fill my bookcases again.
No more boxes stacked everywhere, that was making me very restless and uncomfortable. (That feeling when you've just moved to another place, but for years.)

The living room floor is cork. Good for me, good for the environment, good for the gas bill, hopefully. It looks nice and warm.

My sister and brother-in-law stayed over because it's a long drive for them, and it was hard.
Overwhelming and hard; I felt pretty broken for most of the week after, so a bit of the opposite of looking forward to their next stay.

I still can't find the words for what they said to me, but it was soul crushing and made me question myself, despite everything.

Anyway, there will probably be months between the next visit and the one after, so I have to hold on for one more week.

@Jiriki I’m sorry that that happened to you. It’s always amazing to me how the people who are with us for our entire lives often make us feel the worst about those lives.

Keep holding on. We all believe in you.

@davscomur omg thank you so much! Tears in my eyes, so apparently it is still sore.
It's so hard, I never had anyone on my side or defend me and they still defend my father's actions. If they were complete assholes it would be easier, but they are not.
