I'm pleased to day that our patio doors did arrive, not on Monday as promised ~ apparently some glass was broken in the factory, make of that what you will ~ but on Thursday. Installation went well and work on the rest of the build can now continue.
The next day the lovely builder removed the old patio door and window from our current living room, this will become aMr Clicky and me painted some more of the old fence, which was looking very faded.
cave snug. The gap at the top is for a window.
What do you think now? The rose ~ about the only thing in the garden at the moment is in full flower.It's called Geoff Hamilton ~ a name known to UK gardeners ~ and is a real stunner, with a beautiful delicate scent. When a man arrives with a digger next week, to level the garden and dig soak aways I will make sure it is protected.
As with the rest of the country we have experienced a real blast of hot weather, getting up to 31 degrees
Now I love heat, mainly when I'm lying next to a pool with cocktail in hand, but even I think for working in, it's been too much. We've had all the doors open at school trying to get drafts through, and there are wafts of suncream as children as slopping it on. Don't even get me going on night temperature and lack of sleep.
Master Clicky continues to play cricket at the weekend, so is developing 'farmers arms' ~ brown on the bottom, white on the top. I was bemoaning how hard it was to get grass stains out of cricket whites to another cricket mum at school and she suggested Swarfega. I bought some and as soon as I opened the lid I was transported back to my childhood on the family farm. We used to have a massive pot under the sink, to transform oily hands and arms to normal.
I gave the offending stain a scrub and walloped the whites in the washing machine.
Result: I'm pretty pleased with that.
That's me for now, as always have a good week............Clicky Needles.
