Oh dear Cynths - I seem to have got my days mixed up. I thought they were doing the floor today :-S :-D :-D

Is your son not doing too well then after his Op?

I hope he recovers soon so that you can stop worrying about him <3 <3 <3

Morning all :-D

Thank you for breakfast Dea, that was very thoughtful of you.. <3

As it happens, the man came to put the screed on the kitchen floor yesterday but.......he hmmm'd and haaaa'd and decided to come back tomorrow morning. The washer, fridge and freezer need to be moved. I had thought of moving them into the hallway and then realised that they wouldn't go through the door into said hall :-(

They need to be put outside if it is fine or, failing that, into the garage. It will take two of them to do it, hence the visit tomorrow...... :-S

Not sure what to do this morning. Need to do some shopping but am still concerned about son....... :-S

Haven't had my BP done for a while but it's usually okay. Can't understand why at times...... :-D

Gins, this morning I got on here with little probs.......strange isn't it? Not buying anything new until what I have really packs up :-D

Quick browse then off I go.....


Dea Report 3 Apr 2014 08:27

Good morning all :-)

Thanks for the cuppa Ginns <3

I expect Cynthia's kitchen will be 'out of bounds' today if they are doing her floor so I had better prepare breakfast:

Mushrooms and 'white' stilton (not the smelly stuff!!) on toasted ciabatta.

Cheese and onion tarts

Bacon butties

Sausages, grilled tomatoes, grilled mushrooms, fried bread, poached eggs and more bacon ! ;-)

Please help yourselves.

Just got on here!

Cynthia hope your son feels better soon. <3

Gins glad results were good. You reminded me of the time our surgery was doing a "mass" check of patients blood pressure (cant remember why)

She nurse came out to the waiting room and said "follow me"

I did up 3 flights of stairs she them sat me down and proceeded to take my blood pressure!

"Its a little high" she said :-D :-D

She did it again 10 minutes later and it was fine ;-)

Heating guys coming tomorrow estimate between £200 and £400 depending on how long it takes :-|

Ey Up~~~~~~~~~~~

Just got back from the bone clinic.....trying to cross the city in rush hour, I may as well have been coming back from Leeds!

All my bloods are good, blood pressure is high............not buddy surprising 'white coat' syndrome

They weigh you and THEN take your blood pressure :-0

Mornin all~~~~~~~~~

I'll have a fried egg on toast please.......thank you

Cyns, with your hardware being so old it's likely to be the problem. It can't keep up with the software that is now so far advanced

You'll not believe how fast a new pc works compared to your old one


Dea Report 2 Apr 2014 08:34

Oh Thank you Cynthia, I was just getting the pans out and ready and realised you havd already made a start.

The bacon smells delicious and it tastes even better ;-) <3 <3

Hope your son gets better soon.

Dea Report 2 Apr 2014 08:31

Oh well, at least you know that they are only doing what is needed Linds and not overcharging you :-)

Good morning all,

Boiled eggs and toast soldiers today and bacon barmcakes for anyone who wants to share...........

Have a good day everyone,

Dea Xxx <3


Cynthia Report 2 Apr 2014 08:29

Good morning all.... :-D

I'd better get the kettle on, the bacon grilling, the eggs frying, the croissants warming and the bread toasting.....................all before our Dea gets here... :-D

Hope everyone gets there work sorted.....this is where Jonesey used to come in and give us his words of wisdom and advice.....bless him... :-(

I'm having my kitchen floor tile work started this morning so must remember to make a sandwich before they start!!

Son is in a lot of pain with back and leg - am on standby mode in case needed to ferry him anywhere..

Gins, it was a new router last year and fitted by an engineer. I think the fact that both my laptop and my desktop are quite old doesn't help. Desktop is 9 and laptop is nearly 6. I also think I need to have a good old de-junk of clutter :-D

Have a good day.......


Linda Report 1 Apr 2014 23:01

I haven't been charged for all the times they have been out.

The pipes were with the heating system when we moved in over 30 years ago and the system must have been at least 10 years old then.

He showed me a part of the pipe that he has already replaced and it was chocked with gunge he had already put the cleaning stuff through the system.

I will only be paying for the new piping and the time to fit it which in all honesty I am sure it needs done.

Like your window company Gins we have used them before (they fitted the new boiler a few years ago) also the guy is a friend of one of the boys so they wouldn't chance their luck ;-)


Dea Report 1 Apr 2014 20:00

Linds - we have a mixture of microbore (very thin pipes) and the normal ones but no problems!

Obviously the newer ones are hotter and they have thermostatic valves so they are more effective too.

If they are 'proper' plumbers they should be able to balance it with no problems !

Don't take any nonsense from them !!!

Gins Report 1 Apr 2014 18:57

Linds...are you sure, they are not after unnecessary additional work?


Linda Report 1 Apr 2014 18:52

Gins sorry to hear your news <3

My radiators are turning out to be a farce.

He was here for 3 hours today most of it underneath the floor.

Found the blockage thought he had got it fixed. fires up the system. Nope :-|

The pipes are the old narrow ones which is the main problem upstairs is heating fine.

Downstairs is like a freezer :-|

Now it seems the only solution is to re-pipe the system and they cannot do it until Thursday :-P

They did re-jig their appointments to come out to us today BUT....

Result --- one cold unhappy bunny :-(

thank goodness we have portable heaters :-)


Gins Report 1 Apr 2014 17:22 old is your router?

That might be the problem?


Cynthia Report 1 Apr 2014 16:41

Whew! Sorry about the rush this morning.........stupid internet/laptop - don't know which, was playing up and kept freezing. :-(

Had a wander into Bolton today...not been for ages and it was interesting to see how some things have changed.

Having a 'screed'? put on my kitchen floor tomorrow so have been busy cleaning out underneath the units........dear oh dear......hangs head in least it is all nice and fresh now. :-D

Sorry about your friend's always sad when a friend dies....... :-(

Going for a gentle browse........before I make the meal.....xx


Gins Report 1 Apr 2014 16:13

Thanks for the PM Dea

I have just spoke to the blind company who I need to come and re-fit the roman blinds around the house

I have self holding blinds, you pull the cord and they stay in place. He has told me I must have cleat hooks added, even though I don't need them, H&S law

I understand this is for H&S reasons and protecting young children, I don't have young children and the only way anyone is going to be strangled is if we wrap the cord around each others necks!

Hey Ho..........................


Dea Report 1 Apr 2014 12:17

OOhh Ginns - what very sad news..................

He can't have been particularly old then ?

Am sending you a pm.
