    The "best" ones are when the corner isn't close to 90 degrees, the floor slopes significantly and the wall leans significantly off vertical.. Nice!

    I find an alternative to “counting sheep” to get to sleep is to try to count all the ways a thing - say a shelf, or a door - can not be straight.
    We live in a 3-dimensional universe, but once you add all the permutations and combinations I’m sure it gets to about 42.
    Luckily we have expanding foam :)

    I had some gaps where the skirting meet in the corners along with the architrave corners but once it was filled with caulk and painted, nothing can be seen. Thanks for all your help.
