From then to now … a new start …


Now it gets a little boring as nothing much happened for the next couple of years. K**h had a few jobs which included a vacuum cleaner salesperson. She answered an advertisement in the local free newspaper for a demonstrator and within five to six hours she had become a reseller. Now you may remember from … Continue reading From then to now … a new start …

Have I answered my own query …


Last month, I posed the question about upgrading to a paid plan rather than the free plan I currently use. The type of blog I write is basically a random thought blog. I think of something or something is on my mind, and I write a few words about it. My wife's argument was that … Continue reading Have I answered my own query …

Full of cold …


Yep, I'm full of cold. It started with a bit of a cough at the beginning of the week and it's now reached the 'messy' stage. Problem is, that on Saturday, we are all going for our annual 'flu jab'. I've been told, that with any prosthetic heart valve, the flu vaccination is a very good, … Continue reading Full of cold …

One month down … rest of my life to go …


As the title says, it’s been just a month since I took the plunge and retired. So how’s it gone so far? Well, my idea, that I would get a part-time job within the first couple of weeks has been a non-starter. I’ve not seen anything that I could honestly is a job I want … Continue reading One month down … rest of my life to go …

I hate wallpaper designers


I am going to have a bit of a rant, so you are forewarned. I shall endeavour to explain the reason for my rant. For the past two days, I have been decorating my youngest sons' bedroom. Now it's not a large room by any standard, but he seems to like it. R*** is Autistic … Continue reading I hate wallpaper designers

Nearly over ….


     The decorating is all done. Well, when I say 'all done' I mean the new flooring and the wallpapering is done. I've not done the paintwork, except for the window shelf. I managed to do that on Monday night, at around 9:30pm. It has been a long week. What with that and having to … Continue reading Nearly over ….

Day one …….


     The above refers to this being the first day of Mrs H's Bulgarian holiday !!! She has gone off, with her sister, her sisters two kids and her sisters partners youngest, to Borovets (hope I've spelt that right) for a break. It's a well known ski resort, but her and the sister are not … Continue reading Day one …….

A reasonable weekend …


   I got the decorating finished on Saturday. Well, when I say finished, I mean all done bar the woodwork. That is going to have to wait a day or two. Saying that, there is not a lot of wood to paint. Just the door frames and the skirting board, so 4 or 5 hours … Continue reading A reasonable weekend …

… and so to the end of another week


   It seems to have been a long week. Usually there are days when I struggle to fill the working days, and then other days, I struggle to fit all the work in. But this week, every day has been busy. Well, steady anyway.    Youngest home from his adventure week today. From all accounts, … Continue reading … and so to the end of another week

Weekend comes early ….


   A couple of days off straddling the weekend, comes as a welcome break. Although more decorating is on the cards. This time its the dining room, and  as you may be able to see, the colours are very strong to say the least. another problem, is the amount of furniture in this room. Against … Continue reading Weekend comes early ….

It’s hard work ….


   Back to the decorating today. Who would have thought, that a room 4ft by 4ft, would take so long to paint. I think the problem, lies with the previous paint. It’s green. Not just green, but what was called ‘antique green’. Now I don’t know what that means !!! What I do know, is … Continue reading It’s hard work ….

Back on track …. (?)


   Really could not be bothered posting anything on Thursday. Work had been tiresome again, and I had actually felt a bit off colour. I had that feeling that was ‘not quite a hangover, but close’ type of feeling. It did cross my mind that I had the beginnings of flu. However it was neither. … Continue reading Back on track …. (?)
