I intend to get a lot of use out of it Mouse, and I didn't pay full price either

Good eventide! I've lost all my money playing poker, and a cat stole my popadum.

The moral of the story being never turn your back whilst playing poker with a clever cat?

Love that dress Caz

Friends staying over.  It was lovely to see them, but it was boiling hot in the bedroom (ooh er missus) with the door closed..  Still, on the plus side there's a loaf of bread rising nicely in time for when they wake up, and the ironing's done.

Toast and jam for brekkies. Tea here.

Morning mundanies, Happy Sunday

Morning.  I was supposed to get down the pool early but I had a late night so over slept this morning.

Morning. Beautiful dress Caz, just can't get the image of Mr Puffy wearing it out of my head.

I should be running and then marshalling at a x-country event today. Norty small.

I'm bunged up with a cold today so that's my excuse for not getting out there.  But for that the weather wouldn't be putting me off at all.

I've got four blown light bulbs in my house.  I've discovered that they are of three different types.  I'm glad I checked before going to the shops

We have a whole box of Wrong Light Bulbs

We have a box of various ones, but never the one that is needed. Oh and also a box of freebies sent by the power company, which look horrible.

The bloke who owned this house was a DIYer of the waste-not-want-not persuasion.  Or more to the point of a fix-it-and-bodge it persuasion.  Why use one sort of screw on a door hinge when you can use several differnt types, or just bang in a couple of nails if you CBA?

Apparently he's now semi retired and is doing property maintenance for a living

Bloke who owned this house was a plumber, it's amazing the amount of copper pipe he used for random things.

In the house that I still technically own, the previous occupant was an electrician.  Why light your hall, stairs and landing with one light when you can use 18.  There are 22 lights in the bedroon, 12 in the lounge and we had a 6 button remote control unit for the garden lights.

Bloke who owned our house hadn't got much of a clue. We have picture hooks directly above light switches, plumbing that looks like its been put together following a drawing by 2 year old, and painting that could have been neater if a drunk did it.

Our (rented) house is lacking plug points. We have a rather complex network of extension cables in situ, and they're working reasonably well

Bodgers is terrible things.

Good morning Mundanies *waves*  Hope you all have a sparkly week.

11/02/2013 at 08:38

Morning. The sunshine on the frost is making it all sparkly here. 

The previous owners of our last house liked to write the completion date on any jobs they'd done. They also liked to note the weather conditions for that day and in some rooms the current news story was found under the wall paper. 'Do NOT try papering this room with 4 rolls' was found in the smallest bedroom. We never knew what we were going to uncover next!

I like that small (y)

Today is recycling bin day. I got in a bit of a muddle and kept changing which bin I put out.
We have somw snow here. The weatherman got it wrong.

Morning all - the previous owners of our home were all vertically challenged (the dad being about 5'1" and the mum in the region of 4'10") - all the windows upstairs are velux!!  We wondered if they ever got them opened!!
