A great day at work, getting so many positive comments from people and getting to chat as I go about my amended duties. Feels so worthwhile. Spend the first half of my shift learning the new job role.
This is creating a lot of hassle in the village, the second closure on the same road less than a few hundred yards apart. You cannot turn left out of this junction as it is blocked off level with it. Sadly people are approaching the road closed section then realising they have no where to go so come up this road, the wrong way up a one way street.
The shower base was not the lightest so hubby decided to smash it up. I wanted to keep it to make a garden feature of it but will keep our own one instead when it comes out. Next door came out wondering what the noise was.
One of the power tools hubby bought last week had a piece missing so rather than wait two weeks for a spare part to be sent pout we took it back to the shop and swapped it instead. Decided to take the shower base to the dump at the same time as they are on the same road. Also popped into the tile shop to see if they had the tile we wanted back in stock, they did not but they had them in another branch so despite the heavy rain we drove down and picked them up. Not that we are anywhere near ready for fitting them but got them now.
Ordered this on Sunday evening, came just after 9am this morning. Hoping to be needing this very soon. Watch this space. I am well excited.
Picked up DD3 and went to meet up with mutual friends. Nipped into a supermarket to pick up school shoes for Dinky. She wanted Troll ones but they did not have them. So got her ones with flowers on instead. Not what I would class as school shoes, I would call them party shoes, when mine went to school shoes covered their feet fully to help keep them dry on their walk to school and offered support. How times change, guess few kids these days walk twenty plus mins to school in all weathers.
Spotted the cygnets feeding off the bottom the groups of children watching were laughing at this.
Another run to pick stuff up to carry on with the DIY jobs in hand. Another walk along the beach while we were out.
A busy day running here and running there. One of the runs was to pick up a bike for Bob. He was due one for his birthday back in April but as he was shielding seemed a bit cruel to buy him one at the time. Now he no longer needs to shield seemed a good time to get him one. He was not expecting the delivery and was over the moon when we dropped it off for him.
While I was out yesterday I treated myself to some new socks and threw away all my pairs with holes in.
We had the most amazing thunder storm at tea time last night, have never heard thunder quite like it.
So today I should be at work. Sadly for me the government have moved the goal posts again and after a lengthy phone call with my line manager yesterday the conclusion is I am no longer allowed to be at work. We may or may not be able to find a fix round this, found a fix for the last fourteen weeks, I am adaptable so time will tell.
So I used this morning to do a pile of tidying up that I have been looking at for the last few weeks. The spare bedroom now looks like a bedroom again and the cupboards have been organised.
I bought myself a subscription to Let's Knit magazine after buying one and really like it. My first magazine turned up yesterday along with the wool as a free gift. A lot of interesting bits and pieces and hints and tips as well as patterns.
There is a mystery pattern in this months magazine made from various styles of squares that is being covered over three months, so going to use this for making the project.
