~~~~~~ sluggy's friend~~~~~~

~~~~~pippette~~~~~ I'm sure they won't hold whatever she did at 15 against her!! Might be quite odd to work for your former headteacher though...

Glad you're jolly Chuggs  

Lovely swimming there DL! As Chuggy said, ace that you can give FC6 a few 'normal' experiences ('normal' - hmm...)

Working at home today. Oddly disorienting mix of bright sunshine and snow. Mr Cheery gone for some kind of barium meal thing at the hospital - doesn't sound very tasty...

Sounds lovely Meldy! (especially the pavlova. All bike rides should come with a pavlova. Bet noggy's didn't - he's hardcore)

Well marshalled Podds! 

Gardening course sounds fun pippi Rather annoying with the restaurant! 

Well, we dressed as grown ups and went to view our new house. Which isn't going to be our new house, sadly. I was incredibly taken with the balcony and views over the valley (apart from the fact that I could have jumped directly onto next door's balcony from ours...). Slightly less taken with the fact that their sofa was only 1.5 seats long (and couldn't fit in any bigger), and had its back pushed up against the gas fire as nowhere else to put it! 

Bizarre slopey cellar, and part of it was bricked up completely apart from a couple of holes - we shone in a torch and all we could see was a tin of Pledge furniture polish - who on earth walls in a tin of Pledge into their cellar?!

Had a two-cafe afternoon and came home to slap a bit of PVA on the bathroom wall. Mr Daffs won't let me plaster til next weekend - some nonsense about being able to see through the wall to the outside and needing to fix the mortar at the same time. Blah blah.

Yes it is starting to feel a little like spring - hooray!


Mr Daffs is pretty handy actually but wasn't around yeaterday and can take a while to get round to stuff. Usually what happens is we ignore something for several years, I get fed up and make a start - and then he comes along to inform me of the things I should have thought about before doing it and sometimes ends up doing it instead

I'm actually pretty competent myself would you believe No idea what I'm doing but quite willing to have a go

Not just a pretty face

Anyway, off to view new super house in a couple of hours - eek!

Have a good one all, hope you weather is as good for marshalling as ours is Podds!

Yawn. Bored now. Just about got to the point where I can start plastering  but seem to have irreversibly clogged the hoover with plaster and brick dust and polystyrene... Can't lift the bag of plaster out of the car (managed to lift it in, but that was only off the trolly) so might have to mix it out in the street  

(sorry, I do realise this whole sorry saga isn't interesting to anyone, including myself, but somehow it's easier to deal with when you feel like you've got pals in there with you!)

Well done Spence! My mum went to her local parkrun this morning! Not sure how she got on - she was only going to watch and chat to the woman about volunteering  

Only agreed to this valuation as we wanted to view a house and didn't want to seem completely unprepared (although I'm aware we are actually very unprepared!). If we see the house and decide not to go any further I'm cancelling the valuation for now - trying to plaster the entire bathroom and clean house from top to bottom in a weekend is NOT doing my blood pressure any good!  Haven't even got all the wallpaper off so I can start THINKING about plastering yet!

Sounds like my type of running Tubs  

I've been quite industrious so far - well, spent £125 between paint shop, hardware shop and Wickes anyway  Now have all plastering supplies, all paint supplies for many unfinished painting jobs, a new loo seat, industrial strength cleaning supplies and a decent stock of biscuits  

Just need Mr Daffs to get his musical stuff finished and get out of the house so I can crack on!

Sounds lovely Spence  

And sounds less lovely POdds! Hope you got the answers sorted xx

(((sluggy, snaily, sue, and other waisters beginning with 'S' or other letters of the alphabet)))))

Booked a house viewing for Sunday morning  Feel like they're going to tell me I can't have it as I'm not really a grown up  Even more frightening, booked a valuation of our house for Friday afternoon  Anybody know how to plaster?!

Open house and free cake to anyone turning up with a pair of rubber gloves this weekend 

Feel sick just thinking about it all

giggling at your shetlands sneaking in through a cat flap in the back door  

Gosh DL! Other people's eating habits really are a revelation (mind you, I suspect some folk would be horrified if they saw the crap I eat sometimes!) Best to keep it to myself I think  

We too have a house full of 'stuff'. We also now have a house with barely any plaster on the bathroom wall. I can see just how un-straight and non-square bricks were 116 years ago when they built this house, and I kind of wish I couldn't because now I wonder how the whole darn thing is still standing!

I never bothered looking Nogs, but we are actually in the market for one now so I think I can be excused!
