While he was doing that I wrote an article about building a mud hut and did my accounts for 2009-10. The latter took me all of 10 minutes including finding all my bank statements - my idea of filing is to thrust them into the desk and close it quickly before everything falls out - and putting them in order.
Mud hut or cob building is fascinating. Cob houses are literally made of mud with no bricks and no wooden framework. They've been built in Britain since before the 13th century and have recently come back into favour being very sustainable and eco-friendly. One modern architect-designed cob house, described as eco-luxury, recently sold for three-quarters of a million pounds.
Oh oh, hot flush alert!
The point I meant to make about my accounts is that I need to earn more money!
I handed my accounts over to my accountant (aka Husband) who submitted them to the Inland Revenue. They felt so sorry for me that they're giving me money. Which as I didn't pay them any is jolly kind.
