We've been waiting for the nicer weather to move the sheds and sort additional storage. Finally we have all the rooms in the house working as they're supposed to. Half the dining room is out of action, but the table is fully operational and I have the conservatory back as a room for me to sit and read in the evenings.
Hopefully the kitchen will be finished soon when the fridge is delivered, we've been living with some faults we're not happy with and will just have to accept them. Need to find a builder for the extension and in the meantime Peter is starting work on building his new shed, I'm doing some gardening and I have a few projects on the go sorting loose photos into albums, a couple of sewing projects, some writing, a few crafts and I'm on a mission to read some more books.
113 Saturday We moved the shed from the side of the house ready for builders and scaffolding (need to find a builder first) The shed move took less than 30 minutes, re packing the sheds took most of the day and there's still a lot of stuff in the conservatory in case it rains.
We pushed the shed across the lawn in one piece on rollers.
114 Sunday Early morning dog walk to the retail park for coffee, washing on the line, garden pots moved to front of house, conservatory emptied and cleaned.
Our front garden faces South.
115 Monday Tidied the craft room (again) Washing on. Dog walk up the Malvern Hills to see the Bluebells, a picnic and home to iron, make the bed and just relax before work tomorrow.
116 Tuesday Back to school, a new timetable for me. Home just after 3pm, the neighbour came round with some flowers (just because) and her two children. Peter wall mounted the new TV in the bedroom and I spent ages signing into all the apps as we don't have an aerial for freeview.
117 Wednesday I walked home from work, Peter met me half way with the dog. The evening was spent putting 100's of stray photos into albums.
118 Thursday Some ironing and washing after work and the evening spent finishing the photos. I've now got the dining room table back so I can start sorting through my dad's stamp collection. Peter sorted the TV out. I baked a fish pie for tea, it was delicious. I spent almost two hours on the phone to the Halifax to close down accounts that I closed down 11 years ago after getting a random letter through the post.
I'm flitting between writing #Postcardsofkindness, sorting through photos and reading.
119 Friday A lift home from work, I tidied my craft up after Peter had finished in the loft space and eaves. My friend round for the evening for chips and wine. I set up a D/D for the Council Tax, it didn't work and had a random letter at my SIL's address saying I had to pay the whole bill now. I've been paying the bill for 2 years and they always send the post here now. That took me an hour to sort over the phone and another hour spent talking to SSE to dispute yet another bill for the flat which is empty for over £200. Will have to go and take a meter reading now.
Bob came home from his walk without his collar.

Sounds like it's been a week of faffing with trying to fix things that people have got wrong. Sigh, everything always feels harder than it ever should be.ReplyDelete
It's always the same, all or nothingDelete
It sounds like you have done well getting the shed moved and you have been busy in the garden.ReplyDelete
Oh dear, what a faff with the bills. x
It's always the same, nothing is ever simpleDelete
Admin work is a lot of hassle and you had plenty of that these days. Hopefully now is a bit better, with more interesting things to do and sorting our papers and DD for council tax.ReplyDelete
Still sorting paperwork as we're selling our flatDelete
Glad you now have all the rooms in the house working as they are supposed to. Hope the kitchen is finished soon. Those bluebells on the Malvern hill are gorgeous. Sounds like you’ve been busy with all your projects and with sorting out photos. It’s nice to have them organised and in albums. #project365ReplyDelete
I'm now able to grab a photo album of a particular year to look back on fond memories and it's so nice to have the house almost fully functioning againDelete
I really want to print out some photos and make some albums but my mum had 30 years of loose photos at her house! Hope all the garden and house changes go to plan. #project365ReplyDelete
I've started to print some more recent photos of the grandkids to put into memory books for them when they're olderDelete
