Unorthodox

My Dad was a Master Builder, and took a great pride in his work.
He had several chuckles at our attempts at DIY, but he was always there to offer advice and never made anyone feel silly or inferior if they cocked up.
Hubby and I put a back door into our bungalow in Poole and too late realised we had a long drop onto the drive, so he made a step. We called it Little Bedrock as it was a sort of brick, slab and crazy paving effort, but it did the job.
My Dad, bless him, knew it was an unorthodox way of doing it, but true to form, he offered Hubby some praise and said
‘I wouldn’t have done it quite that way myself, but it works!’

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 an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. 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.
