Weather: wet



"See that slab you're trying to chisel away from the bedroom wall?"


"Something's just occurred to me."

"What's that?"

"The wall's built on the slabs."

"Oh. . . right."

"Better leave them where they are."

"Good point."

I've had moments like that. I suppose that is why I'n no longer allowed to do DIY projects.

Best wishes (much belated) on your birthday. Sounds like you had a great time.

I don't know why that came to mind, but if I were you I'd leave those slabs where they are.

Happy Belated birthday - sounds like you had a wonderful meal!

Sanding away the support wall sounds like something I would do. :) Let me know, anytime you need help.

I love your new header by the way - I hope you don't mind - I made it my wallpaper on my monitor. It just looks like it's bursting with summer. Which we are not. Let me borrow yours, k?

Could have been a great creative opportunity - French doors, vistas, verandas, stuff like that.
No? No, probably not :)

Mmm, good decision to stop I would say. Ian doesn't let me do anything constructional any more. I am not safe.

"no longer allowed" - must remember that one!


They have been left well alone.


I don't mind in the slightest. Spike, on the other hand, is demanding payment in the form of doggie chews.


Maybe, but I could do without all that rubble.


French doors? In Orkney? Interesting idea!


It's definitely best left to the experts in my opinion, although that isn't stopping us.


OMG indeed.


We did (see upcoming post). I'll get around to the tag in a while.


Not one of my strengths, I'm afraid.
