It's so neat knowing that I can still go and do my Hospice Shop hours during the school holidays.
Having Bex here has quite a few benefits eh?
I'm hoping it's not too cold today as the shop is quite large, so gets very cold.
Usually I get so cold I'm miserable.
I bought some warm gloves the other day, and plan on wearing them... and thick tights and warm clothes.
It's really awful getting chilled to the bone. I get... CRABBY!
What else? Hmmm... I've finally paid for the fireplace repair so can relax and do some 'shopping' if I want. I might just 'want' today! lol
The expense of getting the fireplace repaired has been weighing me down, so now that's it's paid I can relax a little!
Until I get the next 'thing' fixed anyway. The central vac up the hallway is blocked ... I remember sucking up a huge wad of fluff from out of the dryer and from then on it did not work. Blocked. Dammit.
I might just wait a few months before getting that one sorted.
No ADULT was hurt in the making of these photos!... WELL, Lacy lost a bit of hair getting the tape off... pity that. *evil snigger*
Pity we can't do that to argumentative pre-teens eh? But sadly... NO.
Right, I'm off to find something to do this morning...
MARYH: Yep, tried that. Didn't work. Also tried feeding a hose up to try and unblock it. Didn't work.
I think we need to look at the house plans and see where/how the tubing is run through the house... maybe then we can get into the roof? to find the blockage. If the tubing runs under the floor we have a bigger problem... cos the floor is a solid concrete slab.
Dinner is on... Beef/Bacon/Tomato casserole, in the crock pot. Shit I love that crock pot! SO handy.
Bex has taken the kids for a walk to the park again... so it's incredibly QUIET here. Just me and the dogs... talking of dogs:
They would have loved to go walkies too... but Coco would have frozen! Her coat is SO SHORT, I hope in a few weeks she will have some decent covering again.
Plus it would have been a big ask for Bex to manage baby, kids AND dogs.
I'm almost ready to leave house too... got me gloves! Fingers crossed it isn't too cold in the shop today.
*SQUEALS* I got some amazing treasure at the shop today! I can't show ya now cos I'm late home and dinner must be sorted out.
I will show ya tomorrow. K?
End of Day: dinner was nice... and so was the evening, just chilli in me lazy boy chair. Sore foot again, after thinking it was almost all better. Oh well, shit happens.
