Today is Saturday 1st August

It has been a busy morning!
I have written three letters and dropped them in the post to some friends we made whilst on the boat. One owns a small cruiser and has been mentioned in my blog on several occasions
and the others were house owners on the original avenue who we got chatty and friendly with and who have stayed in touch.

Then we started with the puzzles.
You may remember this
a 1000 piece puzzle of narrow boats we completed whilst staying with MSM.
A little while ago, we completed a second
which has been sitting on a board under the settee awaiting a suitable frame.
We purchased two identical frames on Tuesday and have today been playing shiftabout on the wall.
The original puzzle is in a frame totally different to the ones we were able to buy, and the other puzzle we have to do is not of narrow boats, so it made sense to put the original in one of the new ones and the puzzle to do will go in the vacated frame.
We discovered the new frames only had one hanging point and that was the wrong way round anyway for what we wanted.Β  Hubby managed to rectify that with some picture hooks and rivets.
The puzzle was put in the frame and hung on the wall………… and found to be considerably higher than the original, despite precise measuring for placing the hooks on the wall.
On turning the frames round the original had its hooks higher up the back, so that too had to be amended. It has been a game, but Hubby got it all sorted and then we had the fun of hanging the damn things back on the wall!
The narrow boats are finally either side of an empty frame with a WIP label in it.

Cue cups of tea and pancakes.

Hope your weekend has got off to a good start.
Keep safe.

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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.

    I can’t hang pictures to save my life. Never straight, either too high or too low.

    Hehe! My husband would rather have a root canal than hang anything on the wall! Your husband deserves high praise for persevering and getting everything hung to your specifications!
