Both my parents were deeply unhappy together, 54 years married to the wrong person & not willing to give up must destroy your soul really. On the upside the change in her since the death of my father has been remarkable, she's a new woman. Never being allowed to do anything when my dad was at home (female, not capable you see) she was over the moon to be allowed to use Mikes Stanley knife to help remove what remained of the sitting room carpet. Mike took up the majority of it Monday evening just leaving her enough to keep her feet warm. I'd love to see how she managed to get down to the carpet to attack it with a blade and her cataracts getting in the way of seeing what she was doing! Also Mike would have had to hoik her up with her bad back an all! She's had fun over these last few weeks & that's the main thing.
Anyhoo now this decorating malarkey at my mothers is over & solid oak worktops to be delivered in several weeks things can get back to a little more normality round here.
|New rose, I shall do a proper post about it |
|Lying in wait for some birds yesterday, needless to say I failed! Looks pretty though doesn't it?|
|Nearly plum jam time, it would be a damn site nearer if I had worktops on my new units. Slate floor looks good though!|
