It Hides A Secret

DSC_0182

I get home and get the sander out. I get the wall sanded and then

DSC_0183

Get the paint out and paint the walls.

DSC_0215

While the paint is drying I plaster the wall under the stairs.

DSC_0218

It’s going to need a fair few coats to flatten this but it looks better already.

DSC_0193

I then move to the back garden and mow the lawn.

DSC_0197

Then I move the mower to the front, but decide the privite bush has grown too much. Out come the shears and I make a right mess on the floor.

DSC_0184

Once done I move the mower to next door and have a dam good mow there.

DSC_0185

And while I’ve got the shears out I do some art work. I think it looks rather inviting. I guess she may well kill me the next time she see’s me.

DSC_0188

I take the mower back to my garden, put it away and enjoy my plants for a short while.

DSC_0189

There is the odd flower out here and there.

DSC_0203

I go back indoors and check if the paint has dried. I need some good suction on the floor and a good scrub afterwards.

DSC_0201

First though I try one of the pictures on the wall.

DSC_0202

Yes perfect.

DSC_0181

I take the others for a walk around the house.

DSC_0180

I think these will be okay in here.

DSC_0206

This one for the front room.

DSC_0207

This one for the landing.

DSC_0208

I mount this one to the wall. It hides a secret.

DSC_0210

And this one is just lovely here.

DSC_0213

And one for the snug/retro room.

Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em

DSC_0130

At first I was going to do that plastering. Then I thought I’d do the cars, but looked outside, it was wet. So then I thought I’d play that game, what was it called? Ah Until Dawn.

DSC_0117

And yeah its a story based game, that apparently constantly changes depending on your actions.

DSC_0123

It a gruesome horror.

DSC_0127

With some babes thrown in to make it grewsome.

DSC_0129

Its actually very good and hence why I’ve put it on here. Right at this moment free on Playstation Plus.

DSC_0132

I get my tools and head to my parents, where I service the old girl. She is now at 160Km’s

DSC_0134

I get the kit out.

DSC_0136

And drain the aging oil that's done 10Km

DSC_0142

Out with the sparklers and in with some new ones.

DSC_0141

I rotate the cars round and

DSC_0145

Pull my brothers into place.

DSC_0146

At 22 years old its only done 50Kms! A lovely machine.

DSC_0148

It needs a new door seal so out with the old one.

DSC_0143

I get rid of the 22 years of grim underneath.

DSC_0152

And put a new one on. £50 well spent.

DSC_0150

Here is the bonnet. Looking good.

DSC_0154

Off with the air intake and off with the old rubber bands.

DSC_0153

And on with some new ones.

DSC_0155

I start her up and leave her running for 20 minutes. She seams to run great.

DSC_0158

And then start squealing like a pig again.

DSC_0159

I find that the bottom pivot pin is half way out and being held in by the engine mount. Thankgod for that. I look at my spare and the service book.

DSC_0160

And after about 2 hours I manage to get it back in. The thread retook where it had chewed up.

DSC_0161

Another test and this time it looks like its okay

DSC_0165

Well she’s ready to rip.

DSC_0166

I collect the tools up. there is nothing the Thor cannot fix.

DSC_0167

In my moms bathroom, I’m about to make it messy.

DSC_0168

Ah I find she has some V05 conditioner. Great for getting oil off the hands but not stripping your skin of oil.

DSC_0169

A shower later and I’m clean and soft.

DSC_0170

I relax for a while have Sunday dinner and then get a notification.

DSC_0171

I head home to swap cars. I get all the tools out and

DSC_0177

head into the garage where I’ve not enough hands. So I put my keys down. I put the tools away and then leave locking the door that doesn’t need a key to lock it. Oh Bugger! The house is locked too the keys are in there. Ummmm, I call my dad and wait, and while I wait I do some endless weeding.

DSC_0178

So a while later I put the collection of prints in the living room and ponder why did I go on Ebay again?
