Bigger than expected …


The new “Garden Cupboard” is built and in place. It is a lot bigger than I expected and not as stable as I think it should be. The location where I sited has a slight gradient to it so I thought that I needed to raise one end up on bricks. That might not be … Continue reading Bigger than expected …

Strange but true …


The strangest thing about being “Home Alone” is the noises that occur during the night. K*** is away with her sister and niece and R*** is on respite until Friday. Usually, R*** has his computer and TV on all night and you can hear that as a faint background noise. Then there is your partners … Continue reading Strange but true …

An interesting weekend …


In fact, a very interesting weekend. So interesting for us, that I feel it is worth posting about.

The estimate is 7 to 10 working days, but from what I can see of the bathroom, 7 … Continue reading Going to be a looong day …

It’s been a long week …

Around the middle of April, K****s sister and daughter, returned from a week away in Gran Canaria. She returned with an offer that K*** should join them on their next … Continue reading It’s been a long week …

It had to improve …


It started when I got home Friday afternoon. I left early as K*** was taking her mother to an appointment and I needed to be home in time for R*** coming home. He’d been on respite since Tuesday and has been getting home the previous week at about16:40. So I needed to ensure that I … Continue reading It had to improve …
