  1. Hey, Everybody!

    Back in my distant youth I trained as a Hairdresser (most boring job ever)... Now Hairdressers LOVE picking up peoples locks and sucking air in and saying "Oh my GOODNESS... who murdered your hair!!?" and then bitching about whom ever it was. Well I witnessed one stylist do exactly that to a client who hadn't been in for a few months only for her to frown and say "Um, you did, in July???"..... I learned then at 18 never to pick holes in anothers work... lol

    Just did my 'house clearance fund' accounts... £900 left!.... Still have upstairs to do which will be at least 6 of the £225 8 yard skips we have been getting.... need a miracle or a win! So.... We called a local void clearance guy and he came today to give us some quotes.... all still too pricey but we came to an agreement... He will drop off a load of skip bags, I will fill them on the drive, leave wood in one area, paper/books in another, metal in another (standard stuff really) and he will arrive with his 12 yard equivalent truck and vanish it all for no more than £180 !!!! Yes he is legit Considering the cheapest 12 yard here is £300 I am very very happy! I've got the rest of the Library to empty, 4 large double bedrooms, the ironing/sewing room, the dressing room and the bathroom to empty upstairs.... although my old bedroom is done apart from furniture so will be empty in half an hour + axe One of the rooms is mainly clothes, lots and lots and lots of clothes so they will all go to the clothes trade-in for 60p a kilo thank you! haha.. I'm thinking... hoping! That we can empty the rest of the house in 4 truck loads... so around £720 *crosses fingers*

    Goodness it's the opposite here... I sometimes wish the males in my family would be more vocal.. I am definitely "Komandant #1" as my late Deda (Grandfather) used to call Babicka (Grandmother) ha ha ha!

    90% of downstairs done, growth in kitchen confirmed as roots from various trees growing in the masonry and not dry or wet rot. Library started yesterday but L&P ceiling is falling down in chunks so today I started on the stairs and landing!
