At last, after two years or more I have hauled things out of the corner of the living room, and stripped and painted the last corner of the living room.
I have tried in vain to re-arrange the furniture.
A Decision has been made....I must swap the living room and the front room.
Unfortunately, the front room is at present the Room of Doom aka the Black Hole. Which means that The Oily One needs to reduce his Stuff considerably. Also The Geek Wizzard needs to remove the last of his Stuff and say exactly what, of the computer gubbins is worthy having. The Carpenter needs to work a little tidier, but that isn't a lot to ask.
Getting Action from them is another matter
