Hecky thump - we're all at it. I just read Kath's 'My Simple Rhymes' where she shows us the decorating she's done to her little flat - kitchen mainly. Looks lovely. Mimuther's at it too in her living room, Hallway and dining room. Or, rather my bruv and sis are at it on her behalf - she's GOC.
And here are we, for which read 'Keith'. He has decided that our bedroom, hallway and living room need a major makeover. The hallway and living room will get a new wooden floor. He's quite certain the floor in the hallway will only take 2 days. hmmm.....! In his mind's eye he has the hallway completed by next weekend, hmmm-mm!
Then he's going to attack the bedroom. He wanted to put a wooden floor in there too but I put my little foot down with a firm hand. There's no way in this world that my tootsies are getting out of a nice warm bed of a morning onto a cold, unforgiving wood floor. You can't beat a nice shag (pile) in the bedroom when it's a cold morning. OH - - - <
> woops - I've just had to go back and put in the word in brackets because I realised it read a bit rude!!! I suppose I could have changed it altogether but - well this blog is supposed to be me 'warts anorl' so here's a few warts!!!! I do hope I haven't offended anybody. It's what happens when you write down your thoughts. Not offending people, I don't mean - oh make your own mind up whether you're offended. You know me well enough by now!
Anyway, all these projects are to be finished by May so he can practise for retirement by sitting in the garden in the blazing sunshine. Ho Ho Ho - Where does he get these ideas from?
Know what he did this morning? Again? Went off to work at 5am but didn't leave me a key to open the back door with. Poor Sally was standing with her poor little old legs crossed wondering why I didn't let her go in the garden. I can't speak to him at work - as a chicken processing plant their phone number is secret because they're scared of animal rights activists. What do they think animal rights people are going to do over the phone? Make an appointment? So anyway, I left a message on his cell phone and, quite by chance, he called me later in the morning. Where? Just where, if you knew my hubby, you would never think of looking: the box where they should be! He NEVER puts keys in there, never. This is a first. Have we turned a corner? Has he overcome that most malest of blindspots and Got The Hang Of It. I didn't know whether to be mad or glad!
Finally, a little (I hope) problem that I wonder if anyone can help me with. A few days ago - last week maybe - I filled in a quiz on a site called something like helloquizzy.com to see what character of film star I am most like (Ingrid Bergman in case you're interested!). Now the thing won't go away. Every time I click on 'New Post' from my Dashboard the box that comes up contains the result of this quiz and I have to manually delete it all before I can start. Next time, there it will be again, just like the last teaspoon in the washing up. What have I done? How can I get rid of it once and for all? If it comes up again I may just have to publish it in case that's what it thinks I should do. I can't do it through 'Edit Posts' because it doesn't show on there. GRRRR.
Until next time.........
