Sunday 12 September – Tan-talus

As predicted in my last blog 2 weeks ago, I didn’t write anything last Sunday as I have been focussed on the same activity for 3 weeks – hedge cutting.  I have made some good progress but have still not finished the job. This is partly because we have had a number of days when…

Sunday 29 August – Privet Dancer

Last week’s blog said that my focus for the last 7 days would be hedge cutting – if the weather stayed fine and it didn’t disturb our guests.  Thankfully, for the most part, that is what I have been able to do so this won’t be a very long blog. The week’s weather has been…

Sunday 22 August – Fitness Sweeeeet

It was not my intention to have another 2-week gap between blogs and I wanted to show you the result of my efforts in David’s gym last Sunday.  Sadly, our internet connection, which had proven a little more reliable recently (that’s given it the kiss of death), chose to break last Sunday afternoon and we…

Sunday 08 August – Hitting the Gym

Last week has been focussed on 2 projects so this won’t be too long a blog. Last week’s blog said that my focus would be giving Dave’s gym some TLC before he has a new personal training client start.  I said that I hoped to be able to complete it ‘within a week’.  Perhaps, I…

Sunday 01 August – Door-dling Progress

It has now been 5 weeks since I actually provided any sort of update on the work we have been doing to progress our many projects.  Last week’s blog was principally explaining why I hadn’t blogged for a month (having too much fun) but did say that I would update today. Getting my excuses in…

Sunday 25 July – We’re Still Here!

What is that expression regarding having good intentions ….?? I started my last blog, way back on 27th June, saying that it wasn’t my intention to get into the habit of blogging every 2 weeks and that I will try and do so weekly again.  In my defence, it hasn’t been 2 weeks – but…

Sunday 13 June – The Repair Shop

It was never my intention to only blog fortnightly although it has fallen that way in the last month or so. The previous reason was that I had perhaps not made so much progress, this time it was more that, as confinement is being eased, last Sunday we had a large social event to remind…

Sunday 30 May – Make and Mend

Apologies for not posting a blog last week.  A combination of factors, including we (I) probably hadn’t done so much to publicise or making a blog worthwhile to write.  You’ll have to be the judges if this week warrants one either! On the positive side, after a month when you could have been forgiven for…

Sunday 16 May – The Bench Mark for a Great Holiday

As last week, this has been another where we have been working but have minimal things to show for it.  We managed to get some personal admin done with a haircut and visit to the dentist.  One being considerably less painful than the other!  I am a real dentophobe but, thankfully, not much work needed…
