Technology And Household Pottering!!!

There has been a lot of pottering going on here this morning.
We have been catching up on those little niggly jobs that always get pushed to the bottom of the list. So the two nasty carpet tiles in the kitchen have been replaced at last. Andy has mended the grater disc in my food processor and some rubbish has gone off to the tip.
I have been computer pottering....changing my browser over to Google Chrome as I have been having a lot of issues with Firefox these last few weeks. Everything is good so far so fingers crossed it will continue.

We wanted to get caught up with some things as we want to go out tomorrow. He has offered a trip to Ikea with spending money and lunch out so I am really looking forward to that.

Had a call from The Doodles this morning who sound like they are having a wonderful time in Cornwall. They are staying in a gorgeous cottage with it's own hot tub. I could do with half a pound of that
Ruby has been sea fishing for mackerel. Marlowe loves the beach and the sea so it sounds like all is good.

Bad news from the plumber who now says delivery of the boards will be in a fortnight as due to their popularity the manufacturer can't keep up with production. I'm sure there must be four boards somewhere in the ruddy country but he sticks to his own supplier so I guess we wait for the two weeks which is very frustrating.

Thank you Marlene for your request to post a photo of the birdhouse. Unfortunately I couldn't live with the shame. It is the shonkiest birdhouse you ever did see and you will all just have to take my word on

Just waiting for a huge cauliflower to cook so that I can use the cheese sauce I have just made to make a big batch of Cauliflower Cheese. We'll be having it for tea with some local butchers sausages which is one of Andy and DD's favourite meals. I'll eat it but it's not one of my favourites.
Any leftover will be frozen to have with cottage pie next week.

Apart from a few short and sharp showers it has been quite a nice day today.
I hope weekend stays nice enough for DD to make a start on the front garden.

Hope you are having a lovely day.


  1. Oh let Andy loose on your food processor? So instead of grating it will now churn out mini bird boxes?! x

    1. Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha.
      Too funny Jackie.


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a message.
It is much appreciated.
