DSC_0535

i call into Wilko and get one of these. Perhaps it will help the divide.

DSC_0539

I open a new parcel. It is the Duragloss 902 car shampoo.

DSC_0544

there is nothing quiet like it. Hard to get now, but with a bottle this size, it will last a while. I fill a second bottle to give to my dad.

And So I Slipped It In

DSC_0512

The weather is good enough, I’m in the mood and i get the tools out.

DSC_0513

I get digging. I have no idea what I will find.

DSC_0510

To be honest of course I do, I was going to find concrete. And I did. A lot of it.

DSC_0509

Right where we wanted to put the god father post.

DSC_0511

I dug I chiselled I grinded.

DSC_0514

And that hole I made.

DSC_0515

And so I slipped it in.

DSC_0516

Yep at some point I will mix some concrete and fix it in place.

DSC_0518

But not today. For now

DSC_0523

Odd How Things End?

DSC_0488

In the morning before I go to work, I can’t help myself.

DSC_0483

I just have to have a quick look.

DSC_0478

Yeah man

DSC_0480

Only the back gate to do now.

DSC_0489

And those winter pansies are still looking great in the hanging basket.

DSC_0471

After work I collect the parents.

DSC_0463

It is my dads birthday and I have brought him to his favourite place.

DSC_0467

Where he loves to go, and he loves the food.

DSC_0466

I have been adventurous. I don’t like lamb that much, but tonight

DSC_0465

I’ve plumbed for the Moroccan lamb, and wow yeah, lovely, I’d eat it again.

DSC_0477

The last time we came here, in the morning I didn’t have a car any more. Odd how things end?

Clean Floors

DSC_0404

I awake nice and early, there is the cat purring as ever.

DSC_0407

ahh sweetness.

DSC_0412

Sometime later, I’m watching the birdies and froggies.

DSC_0413

I have come to take my mom out for the day.

DSC_0421

Which involves lunch.

DSC_0422

We both have a brunch.

DSC_0423

So yummy.

DSC_0424

And we both have a diet coke.

DSC_0434

After some shopping we eventually head round my house. And my dad has come round, yay.

DSC_0433

Even better the pavers are laid, the edging pavers are laid. All I need to do is get the concrete in at the top. I mix a couple of bags up and get it done.

DSC_0432

Now we are complete.

DSC_0427

I smile.

DSC_0429

This is great.

DSC_0430

This is how I wanted it to look.

DSC_0431

DSC_0430

But right now, my dad has finished it up and he has made me so very happy.

DSC_0435

I start the big clean up, move the bins back inplace.

DSC_0438

put the matt down

DSC_0439

oh joy oh joy.

DSC_0441

So neat and tidy.

DSC_0073

And he has brought the sieve down.

DSC_0074

yep there is one bag of sand, one bag of dirty dirt and

DSC_0075

one bag of rubble.

DSC_0076

We have used virtually everything on the workstation.

DSC_0077

And the garden looks great now the wood is in bags in the garage,

DSC_0078

And so I get sieving.

DSC_0442

Many hours later I have a bag of stone and a bag of good soil.

DSC_0443

yeah mint man.

DSC_0446

but the best thing of all.

DSC_0447

that's to finally have clean floors.

DSC_0456

Without dragging in more dirt at last.

DSC_0449

That is awesome, although the vacuum cleaner didn’t just think so.

DSC_0450

And so I start to cook up a madras.

DSC_0451

This could be nice. Or it could not be nice.

DSC_0453

But as it happens.

DSC_0458

It is so very very very nice.

DSC_0459

Just like my clean floors.
