Home maintenance

What started as a small repair 
to a faulty kitchen downlighter,
has turned into a sixteen hour
rip out and reinstall -
so that's the bedroom furniture out,
carpet up, floorboards up,
earlier lethal work uncovered,
grit, plaster, debris and dirt showering down...
the irony is not lost on me.

 7 year old Charlie Simpson 
is raising money for the victims of the earthquake in Haiti 
by cycling round his local park in London today.
He hoped to raise £500. 
When I last looked he had raised
over £62,000.00
