My job is mobile and I split my time working alternate weeks in Norfolk and Nottinghamshire. I drive down country roads, enjoying rural England through the seasons.

End of the week

My last post for a week, unless I borrow my laptop back off Jo and Steve - which I might do just to make sure I get some practice with this blogging thing.

I may not get much time though - with James coming up and with all the work I have planned to do in my 1 week holiday which includes:
  1. Resurface the driveway (pebbles ordered and due to arrive next Monday)
  2. Mend and paint the garden fence, decking and pergola
  3. Weed and tidy the garden up, including planting my leeks out and harvesting my spuds
  4. Rip the tiles off my bedroom ceiling
  5. Remove the artex from the kitchen ceiling
  6. Rip the wooden boarding off the kitchen walls
  7. Try to do something to stop my garden wall falling over...
  8. Remove all loose pointing from ground to a 4 foot height from the front and side walls of my house prior to repointing
  9. Start the repointing

At this point I realise that I have lapsed completely into fantasy land!! Realistically I have little chance of getting beyond items 5/6, but I suppose it's good to have goals to aim for...

Pinch Punch and all that

It's the 1st of August and when I woke up this morning I had to turn the bedroom light on as it was so dark. But it's lovely and sunny outside now, with the clear cool freshness that is so English after a heavy rainfall.

I have 2 resolutions to take me through my last day at work before my holiday next week:

  1. Speak slowly and stop gabbling and gibbering
  2. If I can't say anything positive - don't say anything at all!

Right, time to get on with it.
