My journey into vaping

Day Eighty Seven, A short lull in the chaos

Leave a comment

I’ve managed to make more eliquid in midnight raids on a half finished kitchen with no running water and no kitchen sink. I made up some T-juice concentrates to 12mg and some more caramel for me, with some experimental butter toffee flavour that I think is going to need a decent steep. I made it fast and without stressing about it in half an hour before I went to bed – by which I mean “curled up on a two seater sofa” – and it’s good stuff. You’d think through all the chaos that if I was going to start smoking again, this would have been enough to trigger it. I still haven’t wanted to smoke a cigarette.

Yesterday marks a month since the work in the house was supposed to start. It was supposed to take three days to complete the insulation, with the kitchen then taking about a week to go in. In reality I’ve had no bedroom all this week, and won’t be sleeping in my own bed until Monday night at the earliest because the plasterwork isn’t yet dry enough to paint. The whole thing has been a farce from beginning to end but there is now light at the end of the tunnel that isn’t the 7:15 express on its way through. I now have a working kitchen and a sitting room that feels almost normal. The redecoration work is still ongoing. And having put all the furniture back in all the rooms downstairs it will all have to be moved again. Either next week or the week after every floor in the house is getting either lino or carpet put down.

Everything stopped for Easter weekend. The hardboard to line the kitchen floor for the lino was supposed to be delivered today. It hasn’t yet appeared. The decorator – come – kitchen fitter  was supposed to turn up and see if paint could be splashed on my bedroom walls. No sign of intelligent life there either. Actually I take that back. A little intellegent life; he vapes.

While my back has been turned, the EFVI campaign has had a lovely boost with the dodo box which is now available to be placed to collect signatures all over the country. If you’re interested in volunteering for this project please email Dodo HQ on: . They do need all the help they can get, and not just because they’re all as mad as I am for volunteering.
