Day 80 and that was that

… oh…

Well, it couldn’t last forever. I was away yesterday and came back this morning to smell of paint in hallway. I had a feeling terrace would no longer be the same. About time someone cleared it up but now, annoyingly, I will never find out if there was a micro ecosystem under the bedlinen.

I like it how the bedlinen left its mark on the floor by the table and the impressions on the table where the plates, mugs and various barbecue paraphernalia used to be. Should have put a frame on that picture, didn’t realise some of these new instagram filters don’t have frames.

So, end of an era in terrace watch – however, you never know what kind of weird and wonderful new neighbours we’re going to get. Seeing as the flat is being redecorated, am sure someone’ll move in soon. I’ll be watching, occasionally.

 

Day 79, wait-and-see

I’m expectant, my life right now is one big wait-and-see; wait-and-see what happens with the deserted terrace, wait-and-see what sort of new neighbours we’re going to get and when, wait-and-see ¬†about tutorials for a new course I’m about to start, numerous wait-and-sees to do with work and not forgetting the wait-and-see about those neutrinos at CERN and whether they really do travel faster than the speed of light.

So, this morning, when I took photos of the terrace, I decided to use as many apps as possible – and I have built up quite a collection over the past couple of months. After all, terrace’s days may be numbered for all I know so I’ve got to make the most of it while there is still time.

Good swirly effect from Synthcam – intentional this time (have been practicing).

In my excitement over neighbours moving out and ensuing drama (this blog doesn’t cover ‘front-of-house’ where we have graciously been left piles of rubbish, unwanted clothes and so on), I’d totally forgotten to pay closer attention to terrace. I thought neighbours forgot that there was a terrace when they moved but some things are missing – the towel that was ‘drying’ over top red chair, for example and also looks like something was taken from top right of table…

It’s baffling – I had to look through archive terrace photos to check what went and it was an old pint glass + the towel. I take it neighbours won’t need a bread knife, mugs or plates where they are going…

Day 78

Nice colours here, no? Terrace – which is now no longer ‘neighbours” as they have gone, gone, gone to make messes elsewhere, was looking rather wet and dull this morning when photo was taken. Thanks to the miracle that is lomo, at least photo is not dull. So I lomoed some more (and then applied some other filters via instagram & co)¬†

 

As neighbours have gone, terrace is now more of a graveyard of unwanted things, chairs and mugs, bedlinen and the poor green sock…

And on the other side, in the ‘corners of doom’:

It is very doomy and gloomy indeed…
