My World.



At the moment I'm either elbow deep in bricks and plaster,


or knee deep in blocks and mortar,


or tangled-up in a mess of wires.


Otherwise I'm digging the garden, chain-sawing piles of wood, or mowing (in between waiting for our damaged cooker to be taken away, and a Palm tree to be delivered). I've hardly got time for a glass of rouge.

When will it ever end (did you hear that crack of the whip?)!

  6. Is it self-flagellation, or is Lady M wielding that whip? Things are moving along and looking great! I bet you can't wait until the family move in. It will be wonderful to have them close.
