Sounds like we did the same thing Sylvs!

Hope all goes well this Thursday

Hi all

a rainy day here.

OH had to take the car in to the garage for work to be done this morning ................... it'll take at least 2 days, and the bill will be around $2,000 (or a bit less than £1,000), but it has to be done, so "bite the bullet" :-(

Gins .............. we had to have a whole outside wall replaced on the cabin because the wood was rotting.

We had it done in July ............................. it was the wall to the bedroom and to the kitchen. Neither had doors between them and the main room.

It was fantastic to see how the guys worked on removing the whole wall, and then re-building it.

It's quite easy when you have a wood building. :-D

Problem was ........... it was bloomin' cold, even though it was July!

I think it was about 6 or 7C, and pouring with rain.

I sat hunched over the wood stove in the main room, and OH kept me well supplied with logs to burn :-)

The closure on the sale of the cabin is this Thursday :-) We have to go and sign some more papers at the Notary later today.

OH has to have another colonoscopy done in 3 months time ................... he's just made the appointment for July 3

take care everyone

I spent the day in the sitting room with the fire :-D


Dea Report 25 Mar 2014 17:49

It sounds very nice Ginns but I bet you are glad they have gone now and you can get warm ;-) :-D :-D

Dea x


Gins Report 25 Mar 2014 17:37

Well, all the upstairs windows are in and they managed to get the kitchen one in too............they look fantastic, pale cream wood grain effect, which fits perfectly with the rendering

I can't believe how quickly they worked, there was only two of them.

They are back in the morning to address the huge bay, which stretches right across the front of the house


Gins Report 25 Mar 2014 11:30

It's buddy cold in here today, the only way to get warm is to shut the doors and sit in front of the fire

Dea, they have done a few of the windows upstairs but they are going to be here until Thursday as downstairs is a big job

Same damp weather here's not walking weather, that's for sure!


Cynthia Report 25 Mar 2014 08:48

Good morning and thank you for breakfast.... :-D

It's a bit damp this morning so not quite sure where we will get our morning exercise. Maybe it's time to do some purse string excercises ;-)

Dea, I am worried about Jonesey too. I have his email address but there has been no response to a recent message. :-(

Off for a quick browse and then a tidy up before a decision is made....... :-D


Dea Report 25 Mar 2014 08:13

Happy birthday to Sylvia's daughter for yesterday - sorry I missed it <3 <3

My son will also be 40 in a few weeks time - yes, it does make you feel old ;-) :-D :-D

Dea Xxx

Gins Report 24 Mar 2014 19:32

I'm worried too Dea :-S


SylviaInCanada Report 24 Mar 2014 19:12

Hi all

another sunny day :-)

Terrible about the landslide in Washington State ....... it's not that far from here, and we have much the same sort of terrain in many areas.

They're saying there could be as many as 108 people missing :-0

Daughter is 40 today :-0

where did the years go :-S

I don't feel that old :-D

OH slipped down to the surgeon's office early this morning ................... surgeon does want to see him in 3 months, so OH has to phone the secretary to make an appointment.

The sale of the property has crossed its next hurdle ....... the writing up and acceptance of the mortgage, which we are carrying for the next 2 years.

Closure is this Thursday :-D

take care everyone



Dea Report 24 Mar 2014 18:52

I am very worried about 'our jonesey' - He still hasn't opened the pm I sent him almost 2 weeks ago !!!!!

Is anyone 'in contact' with him other than via this site?

Dea x


Cynthia Report 24 Mar 2014 17:25

Sit down? Sit down? for heaven's sake Gins....remember...we're retired - we don't have time to sit down.......sheeeeesh.... :-D

Back from Liverpool and all is well. Just a slight tweak to the meds. :-D

Ironing was all finished this it's time for tea...... :-)


Gins Report 24 Mar 2014 15:47 lot wear me out!

Do you ever sit down for a whole day?

The guys are starting on the upstairs windows tomorrow, JB will have to take down the blinds when he gets home tonight


Linda Report 24 Mar 2014 11:25

Gins - It will be worth it when the job is done :-D

Sylvia - glad your OH is ok I can empathise fully ;-)
Hope your knee is better soon <3

Cynthia I am not half as busy as you. take some time today to chill <3

It is a lovely sunny day her just had to get the bedding out to dry.

Off to pick up my new specs and pop in to see the GD's who are at there Nan's today we have them on Wednesday all day and on Thursday afternoon.

It is our youngest sons birthday on Thursday so might bake a cake with help from the little ones :-)


Cynthia Report 24 Mar 2014 08:37

Good morning and thank you for breakfast dearest Dea..... :-D

I am still spending lots of time either typing up things for you-know-where, or putting flesh on my family tree. I actually found a picture of a pub which is still standing and where my grandparents once worked. :-D

Sounds as though you had a great time Sylvs.........sorry about the chair probs and that you have the 'hobbles' again......hopefully it may settle down with rest.

Life is all go for Linds isn't it....?? Don't go overdoing things.......

Off to Liverpool this afternoon for OH's 6 monthly chat with the Consultant/Registrar. It's usually a case of tweaking the meds - so hope it's as simple as that.

The ironing will have to be done this morning.......and it's a beautiful day.

Quick browse and off I go...


Dea Report 24 Mar 2014 08:00

Good morning all :-)

I have put some porridge on as it is cold and frosty this morning :-(

The rest is now underway.............. bacon, sausages, eggs, mushrooms, tomatoes, fried bread...

Toast and crumpets are under the grill.


Dea Xxx

P.S. Glad your OH is well Sylvs <3

Gins Report 24 Mar 2014 07:15

Mornin all~~~~~~~~~~~~

Glad OH is OK Sylvs :-)

Kettle is on............

Windows being fitted tomorrow, weather's gonna be cold in the house for a few days


SylviaInCanada Report 24 Mar 2014 00:39

Hi all

a lovely sunny spring-like day here .................. but chilly!

OH had his "investigation" on Thursday ........... they found 3 sessile polyps (ie, they didn't have stalks), and removed them .......... but that causes more scarring of the colon wall, so he was on a soft food diet for the rest of Thursday and Friday.

He has to go back for another one in 3 months .......... if we understand the surgeon's handwriting :-)

He has to phone on Monday to clarify!

He was in fine fettle for last night's Opera Ball (ie, Saturday evening) ................. as usual, we had a great time ............

....... but my knee didn't like the chairs. So I'm back to being Limpy Lou, as we always call it :-)

Though Hopalong Cassidy has also been said about me :-D

take care
