Strict Wife Of The ’70s Manages The Household - Chapter 269
Eldest brother Lin said, “Mei’s family went and said that you guys are building a house. Thinking that you don’t have enough food, we put together a bag of grain first. Use it when you have to treat the guests and the workers.”
When Lin Mei was going to the market, she would go for a stroll at the Public Security Bureau and ask Han Qingsong to relay a message. Also, she low-key wanted to show that she knew the Director of the Public Security Bureau to make sure that anyone who was up to no good would stay away from her.
Lin Lan’s heart was moved for a while, aware that the food at home was in short supply, “Eldest brother, it’s fine; you guys don’t have enough food.”
“Isn’t it going to be the autumn harvest soon?” Eldest brother Lin didn’t let her take over the bag as he carried it to the yard and saw someone in the house, “Qingsong is at home.”
Han Qingsong put on his shirt numbly and tidied up his trousers. He tied his belt and greeted him in the room, “Eldest brother.”
Eldest brother Lin wondered, I came here in person to deliver some grains and my brother-in-law didn’t come out to welcome me. Instead, he’s hiding in the house?
Being such a hot-shot?
What a change after becoming the Director.
Han Qingsong strode out and talked to eldest brother Lin, asking him to go into the house to have a chat.
Lin Lan glanced at him secretly. Thankfully, Han Qingsong had a shirt on this time to let her recover from the thoughts she previously had. She would be okay after talking to her eldest brother for a while.
However, she couldn’t help blushing.
Han Qingsong glanced at her, feeling that the heat that had just been suppressed was about to explode again. He quickly pulled onto eldest brother Lin, “Eldest brother, let’s go to the new house and have a look. I want to hear your thoughts about it.”
Only then did eldest brother Lin become happy. He waved his hand and said, “I don’t understand that sort of stuff anyways, how can I give you any sort of opinion? But let me have a look.”
After they left, Lin Lan breathed a sigh of relief. She felt that her hands and feet were a little weak. She quickly rubbed her face and continued to wash her clothes.
After eldest brother Lin came to visit, he, Old Man Lin and Lin Mei’s husband came over the next day to offer their help.

They came in the morning, had their lunch at noon and went home in the evening. This routine continued for three days.
As there was sufficient manpower and they were all strong labourers, it took merely three days to clear the site, lay out the lines, dig the soil and ram the foundation. Then, they cooperated with each other to lay out the mud, bricks, and walls, etc. No time was wasted between the workers.
In between the building process, they had two days off. That was when the women went to help tie the straws and clean the compound. Two days were also enough for them to finish their tasks.
In August, the autumn atmosphere was present and the air was cool. The corn and peanuts have also matured one after another. The production team then began to mobilize the autumn harvest.
Lin Lan’s house was also nearing its completion, waiting for the beams to be erected.
A task like erection shouldn’t be rushed, which was why they needed to check the calendar.
A few years ago, the Four Olds(4) were broken and feudal superstitions were not allowed. Whatever day it was, there were no attachments to it.
