Vibrations.........

Is what we endured for two hours yesterday, as the workmen drilled holes in our walls to insert the cavity wall insulation.

Yes they turned up.



It was pouring down whilst they were working and they did try to hose the house down when they'd finished, but there was brick dust stuck to everything, including them. Anyway, about two hours after they'd gone the sun came out and MWM got the hosepipe out again and cleaned everything up.

Now we just have to clear the loft ready to have it insulated too. I'm glad I'm laid up so I can't do it, though youngest son is coming this evening to give MWM some help with it. I bet they find remnants of the Ark up there. I wonder if we'll need a skip?

Onto a totally unrelated subject, I found this blog recently - Bathrooms of the World . I don't know why but it fascinated me. Take a look, you'll want to totally transform your bathroom when you see some of the photographs. There again, there are some that are just holes in the floor! If you have ever taken a photograph of a toilet anywhere in the world you can email it to this blog and have it included. Thinks - I must make sure I have my camera with me when I'm suffering from Delhi Belly on holiday!


MWM has just bought a new gadget. Youngest son calls him Inspector Gadget! I think it's a video come DVD recorder thingy, but it also allows him to copy old video tapes onto DVD. So for the past two days he's been copying the video from 1981 of us on the Generation Game and a feature film he made of one of our holidays onto DVD. It's kept him quiet and happy! If you want a copy of either of our highly prized DVDs, at a very nominal charge + postage, just let me know.

I hate the mess and upheaval of changing things in the house - which is why we don't do it very often. :(

They're in the midst of clearing out the loft as I type. MWM is not pleased because he's just found a parasol for the garden and we bought a new one last Wedneday!! Ooops.

Interesting bathroom stuff and I'm impressed now I know you are famous! The Generation Game?! Well!

Glad to hear the knee is getting stronger! :o)

Hey, Akelemalu! Really glad you got your walls done - I know it'll make a difference (cooler in the summer, and warmer in the winter). I never got my attic done at the same time, even though they offered, because I've got so much clutter up there, and I wouldn't have a clue what to do with it all! :-)

I'll have to check out the toilet humour another day... the laptop's already crashed once here, and I'm sending this before it does it again!

(Down, but not beaten :-S )
