Leave well enough alone.
They were my exact thoughts when the builders moved in to renew and renovate our building, turning a normal quiet stressless day into chaos. Seeing a pair of feet clad in work boots was no exception. The whole process took 7 months, during the summer of course. It was the summer that never was.
Apparently it was a decision made by all to say yes to this new refurbishment. However neither myself or Mr. Swiss remember deciding anything. I must admit we avoided going to the meeting where the decisions were made. It all happened three years ago, tempi passati and now life continues. Perhaps our insulation of the building is better, perhaps the new blinds are better, but our bank account is not better.
