Ann and Lee drove over to John Lewis in Leicester to pick-up a few final bits and pieces for Lee’s new place in Avondale Mews and also to return the damaged roller-blind that was delivered last week. They were out for most of the day having incorporated B and Q into their day-out!
After a hurried curry-dinner (yum yum), we all popped down to the Mews to finish as many of the little jobs off as possible – hanging pictures; putting up curtains; replacing the toilet seat; hanging the bedroom mirror, adding a towel rail in the kitchen as well as utensil thingy and finally, checking the troublesome internet connection – that’s still not working! I couldn’t do the soap dish for the shower because the battery on my drill packed-up (strange, as it’s been on-charge for about six-months!)
Whilst we were there, we also got rid of the mountains of cardboard that’s accumulated by putting it into the spanking new wheelie-bin, provided yesterday by Kettering Council.
9.30pm Job done – and we’re pretty knackered but pleased with ourselves as the place is almost ready now for Lee to move into permanently! There’s still a few more jobs to do, but they can be sorted as-and-when.
Just time to catch Doctor Who on Sky+, and see how badly we did at the Eurovision Song Contest!
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s!
My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community.
But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure!
On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there’s no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
