A No Show Plumber And A Wander!!!

No plumber this morning.
He phoned to say that our wall boards had not arrived at his suppliers. He thinks they will arrive on Friday so the job won't be done until next week.
Forgive me if I am a tad cynical.

Never mind it gave Andy and I the chance to go out for a wander to the farm shop where we bought oxtail for soup making and a tray of beef for stew making. We also bought some fabulous Mature Cheddar rolled in Italian herbs which will go nicely with salad and the rest of the ham for tonight's tea.

Called into the little town on the way back for a coffee and a quick look in a couple of charity shops where I picked up a couple of things for Ruby, a top for myself and three lovely scarves for the princely sum of £5 the lot. Looking at the skirt I got for Ruby now though I am not sure it will fit her but it's a lovely houndstooth so I might make it into a bag.

Arrived home to yet another accident from Smudge so the beast of a carpet cleaner has been out again. I swear I am going to get that dog some Tena Pants...lol.

Andy is out in his man shed making a birdhouse which no self respecting bird would ever want to live in. From the sound of the hammering out there I reckon he has used about five pounds of nails already...😄

Well that is us for today. I'll just put the beast back in it's cage and then I'll get on with prepping tea.

Hope you are all having a great day.

  2. How annoying about the plumber. I love charity shops, you can get so much for your money, ours sells all clothes for 99p now it's brilliant and I often find good labels. Please show the bird house. xx

    1. I just couldn't show a pic of the birdhouse Marlene. I would be too ashamed to let you all see what a completely useless diy-er I married-x-

  3. Sorry he didn't arrive. I'd be a bit cynical too lol. I've hit the charity shops since I've been here. Already have a bunch of books and it's only been a few days!

  4. You put Andy back in his cage...there there...I expect he hasn't been out much of late and had forgotten how to make a complicated project like a birdhouse! x
