Chuck's Stuffs

Quotes, lists, random photographs that I have taken and various other cool shit.

So this is the shed that I built to live in. I see it more as an art studio with a bed but it’s homey, you know? Anyway, there’s still a few little bits and pieces to do like around the window, insulating the doors, filling the gaps and painting it all yellow to match the vintage Popeye wallpaper. Curtains would be helpful too. There’s nowhere else in the world that I'd rather be.

We made a huge bonfire.

I can’t believe I’ve been living out of a tent for the past… shit - almost a month. I cannot wait for my log cabin to be finished but its turning into such a big job and we are always too tired for all the work. The past week we have done nothing because we got so distracted with buying and pimping new guitars and setting up a recording studio in the house and getting drunk and I lost my mind a bit and I had a horrible hospital appointment. At least we can finally see the end in sight. Tomorrow we are 100% going to collect the carpet and buy all the electrics and putting up extra support beams so even if we don’t finish the insulation tomorrow then we can do it by saturday night. I really want to get my shit-hot wallpaper up and unpack by sunday afternoon. Have a picture of us pulling our “we mean business” faces before we tore down/pushed over the old shed last month. Oh, life.

  • I have found her.
  • I don’t know if she has found me.
  • Some days I think she has.
  • Some days I think she is leaning on me.
  • To be honest, either is fine.
  • As long as she’s leaning in my direction.

I wanted to grow old with you. You’re beautiful and clever now - it’s easy to love you now - but I’ll still love you when the wind’s dried you out, and when you’re old and broken.
