Our new hand built sink unit and new mixer taps are finally finished…. It”s been a two year wait. I”m especially pleased with the ceramic knobs I found online. It looks like it”s always been here, which is good coz nothing is new in the house and modern would have looked awful.
What an improvement. The old one was literally from the 1960s and falling to bits.
Whiskey from the Lakes
Not a big whiskey fan, but am sorely tempted by a bottle of the new whiskey distiller in The Lake District. Very tempted.
Looks wonderful – a fairytale home
Man Builds Fairy Tale Home for His Family – For Only £3,000.
Been watching the Belgian (in Dutch) drama Salamander on iPlayer. Brilliant. And a very attractive and sexy hero!
Sad that my Great Aunt Leonora, a real English rose, has died….at the ripe old age of 92. She was the wife of my fathers late Uncle Sydney.
Oh goody. I just earned £70 from Google AdSense for advert clicks from my films on YouTube. Nice surprise. Thats a day out that is! With luncheon!
I am back at Slimming World. Now that some other things in life are getting sorted out I feel that its now or never to drop some weight! I””””ve GOT to succeed this time.
We went to see 12 Years a Slave.Stunningly filmed and wonderful lack of noise, no heavy duty soundtrack. You can hear every breath and rustle of grass.
A harrowing film, all the more so as it is based on truth and what happened to Soloman Northropp. Don””””t try and eat popcorn if you go to see 12 Years a Slave. There is a lot of silence in the film! It makes it atmospheric but I suggest sucky sweets
As a late birthday pressie for Hector and coincidentally for Valentines Day we went out for an Indian meal in town. Very good it was too…..
I would like to congratulate my Great Niece – the beautiful Annabel Tilly Work, on achieving a place at Ballet West on the shores of the gorgeous Loch Etive. I am very proud of you…. and will never forget when you were little and we joined in with Morris Dancing at Beverley Festival (my achilles tendon was never the same!)
Brilliant. My blood test from a check up, and my cholesterol is the lowest it has been since I first had it checked…. And blood pressure is also lower than ever, still not ideal, but much better. No meds required and keep doing what I””””m doing.
Well, fancy that!
Great Salkeld voted as a top romantic date site!
19th Feb… bird count today so far…!
Redpolls, dunnock, robin, blue tit, great tit, coal tit, sparrows, blackbirds, goldfinches, chaffinches, wren.
It must be almost spring… I am considering new flop flops!
Free delish hot choc at Booths using my loyalty card? Don”t mind if I do!
FINALLY decided how to imporve the enclosed back yard. GRAVEL!!! Quickly done and relatively cheaply too. Now to plan the rest.My lovely friend who has a holiday home in the village – Liz – is a garden genius, and came over for coffee and we chatted through ideas and colours and have hatched a plan. Simple style – mostly lavender and pink cosmos in terracotta tubs and wooden seat and lavender wall and some thoughts how to create curves….
