It rains here too!

It’s raining. Hard. Heavy. The fat stuff.
Had we purchased the bungalow in the road closer to the town, we would have a big pond outside the front door, and every time someone drove past, our car would have got a ducking.
Not so here.
There may be a little ‘runnage’ in the gutter, but so far, no puddle on our side. Besides, the car is quite safe some considerable distance away from the kerb as our driveway is large enough to accommodate at least two vehicles, three is they are small like ours.

We have had a good day. I mean, megga good.
The shower kit arrived yesterday and Hubby fitted it today.
The control section was the same width as the one we took out, so he could use the existing pipework. OK, the four holes didn’t line up with any of the three required for the new one, (you can’t have everything), but a little modification to shorten the bar that holds the shower head meant he could use the previous holes so had the minimum tile drilling to do.
It’s up. It works. It doesn’t leak. Hubby had the first test drive, and he was singing.
Can you spot the difference?

The carpet in the bathroom looked new, but it came up anyway.
I remember 30 odd years ago a lovely rose coloured carpet being laid to finish off my new luxury burgundy bathroom. Not only did the suite show every water mark and was a bitch to keep clean, but the carpet was splashed, sploshed and stained from missing the loo (what a surprise sharing the house with three males) so that in a few months, it STANK.
Hubby has laid vinyl ‘parquet’ floor tiles, and I have purchased a bath mat set in cream which contrasts well to the mushroom wall tiles, brown vertical blind and the white suite.

Maggie has eaten extremely well today, clearing her bowl, and drinking well. Everything is as usual with her, and we get the results tomorrow of this biopsy which is hanging over us.

I got the results of my mammogram today, and that showed everything to be normal and nothing of concern.

Yesterday wasn’t a bad day either as Hubby fitted our second lock to the front door.
My fear was it slamming shut when we were outside with no keys and no other way in, so he came up with a digital door lock which solves the problem in such an eventuality.

And remember our sofa bed?
Don’t the new cushions look great?
And this is our dining table:

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Hope all goes well with Maggie’s results. Sending positive thoughts.

  4. Coming along good. *hugs for Maggie*

  5. So good to hear about such a great day! Everything looks great. Are you getting used to having all that space?

    • The spare room is a crash site so the door is closed most of the time. It’s nice to walk round without hitting your head, crashing into hulls or hitting elbows. And as for bed at night? Bliss, i can stick my feet out just as I did at MSMs.

  6. Looks great to me, Di. And, I’m loving the table.

    • It’s rather nice isn’t it. We saw a ‘modern one’ ie. not wood, outside the local second hand shop, and the quality was dismal compared to this and they wanted £50 for it. It’ll look smashing when sanded down and revarnished.
