Today is Monday, 31st May

It’s the last day of May and we have been busy all morning.

Hubby has been meaning to sort out the roof for a while, so seeing as town was likely to be heaving again as it is such a glorious day (our road has been inundated with visitors to the beach today) and we didn’t need anything in the way of shopping, we set to.

Hubby threw down the empty boxes for the lawnmower, ceiling and upright fans, DVD, microwave, mini hi-fi, computer monitor, hoover and our new laptops, which I flattened  then taped together for the recycle bin guys on Wednesday. We also found the small hoover from the boat, our chunky stereo system and an old blind.
I put the hoover in a box with FREE and WORKING on it, and sat it on the drive. A guy walked by and asked if it worked. I said it did, so he asked if he could have it. I told him of course!  I did the same with the stereo and a guy stopped in his car to ask what was wrong with it. I said nothing as far as we knew but it had been up in the roof for three years, so he took it.  Our model making friend in the next road was happy to take the box of fittings from the cupboard and some electrical ceiling fitments we’d replaced.
We have a shredder that works, but Hubby can use the transformer on his potential next project, so the casing on that and the blind will go out for the scrappie. Our neighbour had room in her bin for the last four blocks of polystyrene , so we will be able to dispose of everything without a tip run. Hurrah!

It is now after 3pm, so we are going to don masks and walk up the road as we try to get back into the habit of daily walks. Hubby needs a plug for his drill which he has had to replace the flex on and that’s as good an excuse as any. He’s serviced it too as the hammer drill mode kept engaging. If for any reason it still doesn’t work properly, he’s lost nothing and along with some new tools to replace those that have bit the dust on the wardrobes, we can get a new one tomorrow.

Hope you are having a good day. Take care and keep safe everyone.

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! 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.
