Congratulations to Princess Beatrice who has got married at Windsor Castle today in a private ceremony. Good for you!
Whilst the princess was tying the knot, we were out spending money.
Yep. I’ve got fed up being frugal, penny pinching and putting stuff on hold, so today we went shopping.
Sadly not for a shed. The goal posts have been moved on that again and now there are NO DATES in the offing for supply to store let alone delivery to the consumer. Glad we didn’t part with our money then.
We were up early after a dreadful night for all three of us. Maggie was panting badly because she was so hot, even with the windows open and fan running, Hubby was in a lot of pain, and I was just hot and bothered. I think between us we were lucky if we got four hours sleep.
Anyway, after breakfast and walking the dog. we got in the car and drove 20 miles to the DIY store. Hubby went in while I stayed in the car with the dog. He was gone for about twenty minutes and came out all smiles towing a trolley.
We have a new baby. After cutting the grass yesterday and listening to the little mower’s heart struggling at times (plus having run over the flex earlier in the week out back which luckily did no damage as the blades are so blunt) Hubby went on the internet last night and found a petrol mower at a sensible price so we decided to get one.
We had to put the seat down in the back to get it in and Maggie was a bit miffed having to share her space, but we’ve given it a test drive and it’s great! Not much bigger than the electric one, but it’s easier to handle as there’s no flex to worry about, and little effort to push so easier on the back. The back lawn was cut in less than twenty minutes and it usually takes an hour (nobody passes by to chat like me yesterday!).
Hubby’s had a little shufty about in the Man Closet to get it in, and the ladder has now gone up in the roof. We’ll try and get a fiver for the old one, or offer it to a guy in the next road for spares as he’s always tinkering with something.
My apologies for being late accessing my blog and approving pingbacks for the challenges. I’m getting on that next and looking forward to seeing what you’ve come up with. I’ve already got a idea for my next outing, though I think I’m getting a little carried away.
