We're taking a bit of a breather while the world rearranges its underpants. Meanwhile, the other blog is here.

Watch the wall my darling while the library men go by

Seth and Alwyn are out for the afternoon. They're torn between the utter delight of not being in the building today (T.Aldous is in fine form and isn't on his own) and being pissed off about having to lug around a load of stuff for no good reason. As well as taking the new fridge to Catty Library they're taking a load of boxes from the old Roadkill Library (that was to be cleared out by July) over to Catty to make room for some boxes that are going from Dutch Bend to the old Roadkill Library and some boxes that will be going to Roadkill once they've all arrived at Helminthdale from all points of the compass.

In the old days they'd have been blanco-ing the boxes, too.

I suppose they would have been ironing Robin Starch into the creases as well!

Is this some sort of job creation enterprise? If so, jolly well done!

Moving a fridge?

Isn't that technical work, far above their classification, necessitating a pay raise for those concerned?

gd: they're both of an age where it might be useful.

cb1: strangely enough, vacant jobs disappear in the either but the work creation schemes up the pace considerably.

Ms. Cow: we missed a trick there!
