Thursday Thoughts - 25 May 2023

I wish I could say it was a weekend of socialising with friends, but it wasn't.  It was a weekend of putting up fences and preparing the space for the new boiler.  It was hoping to move the Rowan tree and putting in the plants we rescued from the back garden - the ones the boys didn't manage to destroy!!  It was a weekend of dog walking and food shopping.

This is the joy of buying a house that needs work.  But Oh! it will look good once it's finished.

Hubby had a bit of a set too with the cordless drill and got hit in the face.  As he may have a concussion he's now working from home for a few days.  I always knew that DIY wasn't good for you. 😂

I think next weekend hubby and I should chill out and go to the pub on Saturday night.  That sounds like a great idea to me.



  1. I hope that Hubby is recovering quickly - wow to getting hit in the head by a drill. I agree home ownership is not for the faint of heart. It is a bottomless pit of never ending chores ... I wouldn't trade it for the world :) Fence looks good.

    1. He felt a bit off for a few days but is right back to being Mr Grumpy so he must be feeling better :0)
