Who Needs A Gym?

Well I certainly don't at the moment.
After shifting all the stuff out of the brick sheds yesterday I spent a good part of the evening shifting yet more stuff between the attic and DD's room. Up and down stairs with bags of books and clothes and swapping the mattresses over. We both got a very good workout.
There is still a lot to move but at least she is sleeping up there now.

After the stormy day yesterday we have woken up to calm and sunshine this morning. It's a bit damp round the edges but at least we haven't got that awful wind.
The plumber is here to get the base put in for the tank so that will be a bit more done today.

Poor old Smudge didn't get his quilt as the power went out and I couldn't do any sewing. I wasn't surprised as there is always something going off in our sub station down the road. It only takes a fly sneezing in there to knock something out.

I really wanted to get some laundry done today but there is some kind of contraption (just realised it's a radio which is going to drive me mental) plugged in where my tumble dryer usually goes so that is on the backburner until work is finished out there.
Today will be a tidy up in the kitchen and sewing day then with no cooking apart from grilling some bacon as Andy has asked for BLT's for when he gets in at 7pm so DD and I will have those too.

I'll go and crack on with the day then.
Hope you all have a good day and don't have too much to do clearing up after Doris's visit.

  1. I had to laugh as my late Mother-in-law's name was Doris. She was a real treasure though, not stormy at all.

  4. I do hope your daughter will be happy in her new space. Is there a window and will the central heating extend to the attic? As long as she is happy I don't suppose it matters.

    My fixed/new system computer is back. Not sure if I like it yet! Time will tell.

    1. She'll be fine up there Sandy. She has had that as her bedroom before. I have told her that there will be no more moving....she is to stay put. I'm getting too old for all this shifting about.
      It's warm up there. No central heating but there is a freestanding radiator which keeps it cosy.

      I hope you get on OK with your new computer sysytem Sandy-x-

    1. No...no wind today....lol.

      We should be all done and dusted by Thursday when they come to take out all the old tanks that we won't need any more. I must admit that I expected it to be a longer job-x-
