Just covered my tap. Found bungee looks neat as well. No fear of it falling off. Thank you for that tip. Am going to pass it on to non- forum family

Jo Not doing too much!!!!

Wel Forkers I've managed to get a pole, no bends, joins or central fastenings. Not quite colour I wanted but this is fine. What is more they had tie backs to match. Good for Wilkinson.

During week we had note through door saying no1 were hosting a small wedding reception, they have asked guests to not park in our road, not room to pass a parked car, and it would run from 1 tomorrow until midnight. Fair enough, good of themto let us know. Houses are plenty big enough

We also all ahve larger than usual gardens. Marquee turned up yesterday and today portable toilets. Left us wondering just how small, small is

OH attempting to make bread again - I hope its only a phase!

Combo boiler takes abit of getting used to but haven't had an airing cupboard for a long time, fuel bills are lower and hot water is on 'tap' as no tank to heat up.

Can also adjust water temperature according to the time of year. at moment ours is on autumn/spring setting but have a feeling will have to turn it to winter earlier this year. Best we have is  a thermostat we can put in the room we are in or on landing in evening. When the burner is on we find the heating doesn't come on very much, heats most of house andwe don't have thermostst in living room.

Make sure you keep cover over old water tank Jo. You could get lots of creepy crawlies if not!
