It is a changeable day, but we have beaten the rain and managed to get the washing dry outside. Hubby has sprayed his aerial black, and sadly it is spitting with rain now. At 18 feet it will be difficult to bring it inside, especially wet, so it is hanging on the line, or should I say, suspended from it.
Hubby has been in the bathroom touching up the paintwork. Our hoover had an argument with the skirting board some time ago so that now has a new coat of paint, as does the door frame. This means that we are finished in there………….. Hurrah!!
The DIY bug has hit, and Hubby now has plans for building in wardrobes. When we moved here, we had nothing, and purchased kitchen larder cupboards and a pan drawer as it was over £200 cheaper to do that than buy wardrobe fitments. They have served us well, but storage here is minimal, so we are making things up as we go along.
Hubby believes he can utilize a lot of the framework for the project, and may well make slatted shelves as he did in the cottage to allow for airflow rather than recycle the solid shelves therein. I cannot share his enthusiasm at the moment, but will help him as his gopher, tea maker, and holder of spirit level. There are a lot of materials to price out first though, but we hope to get change out of £300 for the job. Watch this space.
Dinner is on, broccoli and cauliflower cheese for him and tomato and mushroom pasta for me. As from today I have a revised target at SW which I can achieve and maintain. That in itself has taken off a lot of the pressure for dieting and depression.
