Tried to cut the lawn yesterday (it wont stop growing and in tufts is starting to fall over!) But couldn't get the mower to work. Today I really must try and get the petrol smell out of the kitchen; apparently a full strip down and rebuild leaves quite a lingering smell. Even our curry couldn't over power it. Oops! It's rained now so can't cut it but it really needs doing soon.
Last night we looked at our budgetting for the remodeling of the HOUSE. There is so much we need to do, plastering the entire house (once we've chipped this awful crumbling plaster off), a log fire instead of a hole in the wall, a usable kitchen, carpets, and more. We think we can afford £15, 000 ...
... His lordship has decided that the very first thing we need to do is remove the GARAGE and build a new one. At a cost of at least £12, 000.
It's a good job he's having water and electric in the garage because he'll be spending a lot of time in there.
Times like this I miss having the kinds of friends nearby that would willingly pull up their sleeves and in return for alcohol and meat feasts on the BBQ help me work on the house.
Dove, its so stressful worrying about neighbours you don't talk too sometimes. I'm glad that things seem to be running as normal this morning for him.
Lilly; I thought I saw Bushman posting but now I'm not sure. Do we have many members that have been affected? It's been awful watching it on the news and the chatter on the emergency services grape vine.
Friends funeral is today. Still doesn't feel real. If you're in the Barnsley area and see a Green Goddess go by do give Stuart a shout.
Right. More tea anyone?
