Central garage bays being 'cleared'

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 27 June – Not the Snore de France and other sport

Having begun my last blog 2 week’s ago saying that it was never my intention to blog fortnightly, another 2 weeks has passed!  I promise this is not a routine I meant to get into and I will endeavour to write weekly again going forward. That of course is dependent on having lots to share…

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…

New garage workbench

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…

Sunday 09 May – Taking a Fence

I started last week’s blog by saying that it is rare to begin stating that I have had a productive week.  Just so that it remains a rarity, I won’t do so this week!  In fact, again while we have been busy throughout the week, we don’t have so much to show for it. Monday…

Sunday 02 May – Feeling Blue

I don’t often start my blogs saying that I’ve had a productive week(!) but I feel I have achieved (almost) everything I’d planned in the last 7 days.  Although this won’t be a very long blog. Last week’s blog said what my focus would be with 2 major jobs and these were what I managed…

Sunday 25 April – What a Load of Rubbish

I ended last week’s blog saying that this week would be about concreting and “some other things”.  Despite being busy most of the week I haven’t made the great leaps forward with some of the major tasks I’d wanted. Thankfully we did do THE major task, concreting the end garage bay although frustratingly we weren’t…
