Memories of Child Hood

DSC_2765

My new footware is here.

DSC_2766

I’m as excited as when I was as a child getting new shoes before going to school.

DSC_2767

So this is them.

DSC_2768

Or rather this is them.

DSC_2769

ooh look at that, they come with blue laces as well as black ones.

DSC_2772

Yes nice, very nice.

DSC_2775

For a change quality, well I hope for the cost.

DSC_2788

All I need to do now is decide on blue laces or black.

DSC_2787

You know what.

DSC_2795

I like the blue laces. A bit of flare.

DSC_2832

And so there you are.

DSC_2834

I sit there on the sofa, I slip a disc in

DSC_2863

And wish I hadn’t……..

Forever Wet Feet

DSC_2755

When I get home I check the washing machine. I put it on some bricks and yeah its leaking and leaking badly. Was this bargain a bad buy?

DSC_2756

I check the drum seal. All looks okay.

DSC_2810

So its leaking inside, at the back. I remove the bricks and

DSC_2812

take the service panel off.

DSC_2816

oohh so simple a design.

DSC_2813

Well there is the pump and pipes I expected it to be leaking from. But its not.

DSC_2825

This is the actual cause of the leak. The transport bolts. And no doubt transporting it on its back rather than upright.

DSC_2760

I say this as it leaks through one of the bolt holes.

DSC_2763

And leaks bad.

DSC_2824

There is only one thing for it.

DSC_2838

I fill the bolt hole with this stuff. It is waterproof so that should help.

DSC_2843

And that's that. Now we need time to let it cure.

IMG_20170915_073850

And with that I get a message, are you coming for the pond kit or not. Hell I forgot, and head off. And well here it is.

DSC_2807

Project frog pond coming up!

The Adventures Of a Trailer

DSC_2726

I get home and get out the trailer.

DSC_2724

I wheel it to the car and wait for a clearing in the sky. Ah there is one.

DSC_2727

A while later I’ve been up the road, loaded the washing machine and go it back before it starts raining heavily again.

DSC_2728

I slide out the existing twenty year old washing machine and

DSC_2729

prep the 6 month old machine to

DSC_2732

to slide in place.

DSC_2733

So not the smartest make, but cheap and A+ rated, with 6Kg tube and a spin of 1200RPM. This thing is going to spin right out of the room.

DSC_2734

I switch her on, she lights up.

DSC_2739

We are all go.

DSC_2738

it spins round and round.

DSC_2747

And washes…

DSC_2749

Mean while I go out with the parent for some tea at the sizzling pub

DSC_2750

where the carvery is £5.

DSC_2751

But more importantly nice.

DSC_2745

When I get home, ahhhh the kitchen is flooded again. Yep I’ve got wet feet. What the hell is wrong with this thing? Not such a bargain after all perhaps?

Enlightening

DSC_2705

The weather is good enough. I have nothing else to do. So I open the box of bulbs. Yes I’m so excited.

DSC_2706

What do we have in the box of 505 bulbs?

DSC_2708

Just one, why just one?

DSC_2709

Well I’m going to be busy then.

DSC_2710

A while later and my hands are dirty. Yep planting 505 bulbs can be slightly boring. Especially when you know your not going to enjoy the beauty until next year some time.

DSC_2711

So I enjoy what is out now.

DSC_2713

Stunningly so bright.

DSC_2712

Yes it will be so worth it eventually.

DSC_2719

It starts to rain, I head indoors.

Screenshot_20170910-230153

Ah look at that, I’ve won a pond kit for a tenner!
