Why so many bags...

It’s been a week of firsts…

First time we mowed the lawn, first time I had a huge spider run up my leg while gardening, first meeting of the neighbours, first splinter of the course (sustained on day one!), first time Chris has attended a talk from a nurse where finger loss was mentioned and the appropriate ‘digit bag’ was learned about (There was a discussion after about why there were so many bags?!) and of course the very first complete week of the fine furniture course! 398 more words

A fresh start

2014 was not an easy year (not to mention very expensive!)… the highlights; stress and anxiety, complete roof replacement, a ceiling collapse (while twins were sleeping in there), a disaster of a holiday, six weeks of the twins with tonsillitis leading to a knock to my confidence, many boiler fixes leading to boiler replacement, four broken radiators, endless leaky plumbing, major damp issues in the bathroom leading to completely gutting the room and refit over and over and over, a two month delay due to a plumber off long term sick, temporarily moving out, lots of difficult and some upsetting discussions with various plumbers, damp specialists, insurers, contractors, retailers etc.  221 more words

Blogging: A new way of travelling?
