Kitchen Wall & Steps





























I've taken some piccies of the steps that are no longer and the wall in the kitchen, which we've had to take the plaster and render off. Its all been scrapped back, so that it can dry out, before it is re-rendered and plastered...

Friday...


Popped over to see my friend Karen yesterday morning. Came home did the usual stuff like sorting out the ponies and some washing.

Been to the vegetable market this morning got loads of fruit and managed to get some blood oranges haven't had them for ages.

Our man with the JCB rang today will be coming at the end of next week, to start on the ground work that we need doing out in the little paddock and the ground clearing ready to move the static caravan on to. At the moment its right outside the lounge window.It will be fantastic to have all the old crap moved from the stable yard, it looks like steptoe's junk yard at the moment..
Colin our trusty builder came round the other night to have a look at some work we still need doing in the kitchen, we've had to dig the steps out that lead down to the back door, as the damp was getting in through the wall, but we've noticed more damp coming in a the end of the run of new kitchen units, so the whole lot outside has got to be dug up. If you look at the photo above it means we are going to have to dig from the little steps, right down to the end of the barn. Always uncovering something else that needs doing.

So Busy.....

Saturday we spent most of the day outside working around the garden and getting loads more concrete out!
Sunday Mick's parents were due to come up, but unfortunately due to illness they were unable to make it.
Boy's went back to school Monday, same that their holidays don't match the English school holidays, it makes it so difficult when our other friends want to come up.
Today, I popped down to Diane's to get some shavings for the stables and pick up some horse feed and the wormers Di had ordered in bulk.
Mick has been for his MRI scan tonight, just got to wait now for the report to go back to the consultant and our Doctors. Nothing much else to tell you. Still unable to add pictures to this blog and yet I can on my other blog. Makes no sense to me at all....

Busy....

Well Ben got back from Katies yesterday, he had a really good time. Katie was pleased with her Valentine's presents, especially the necklace Ben brought her. Katie's Mum Anne sent me and Harry back a T-shirt and Mick a pair of Tartan boxer shorts, which Mick promptly tried on over his jeans and gave us all a good laugh pretending to be a scottish superman!!
Today we've been working outside as the weather was lovely. Ben helped me saw down a couple of tree's that were completely over grown and getting in the way. The rest of the steps are now out, just loads of rubble to move. Also did a load of house work this morning and loads of washing.
Think it will be a hot shower and early night for me as Mick's parents are coming tomorrow, they are leaving their place around 6am, so they should be here between 11am -12 noon tomorrow.
Really pleased with what we managed to achieve today, another couple of jobs ticked off my list....
Been trying to add pictures to my blog, but blogger is not letting me....

Catch Up..

Been told off for not writing my blog! So here goes.. The boys broke up from school on Thursday last week. Ben flew up to Scotland on Friday to see Katie, he wanted to be with her on Valentines day. He will be back on Friday. Harry had his friend Connor over on Saturday for the afternoon and evening. Fitted new fuse box out in the garage for the boot room and new electrics for the out buildings, we don't have to have an extension lead trailing from the house now...
Been spending lots of time outside as the weather has been beautiful.
We've now started to take the steps out down the side of the kitchen, which have been causing a major problem with damp, the way they had been built meant that any rain we get & we get loads in Wales, runs down the steps but up against the side of the kitchen wall. Harry's proved to be a dab hand on the Kango and there nearly out now. We are going to rebuild them, but making sure the water runs away from the kitchen wall. The first two steps have been laid but Storm managed to get through the barricade and leave her footprint, sorted that out then the cat did the same. Whats not helped is the cement mixer decided mid mix to stop! Luckerley we think its just the switch to the motor cause if you hold the button down it works! We are going to start on the fields this afternoon, they need the scarifier run over them before we fertilize them.
Harry's friend Paul is coming over this afternoon and is staying the night, so that will keep Harry occupied.
My car is due is MOT tomorrow, so thats got to go in early, as they need to change a tyre before they do the MOT. I'll take some pictures of the steps or lack of steps later and upload them. I'm off now to move some horses about so we can get the fields done....

Friends...

Been having a right old giggle with my friend Donna today... She made me laugh so much I thought I was going to choke. I do miss my mates, especially as they all used to pop in on a daily basis, but I'm hoping to see some of them this Summer, when they come up for a visit. Congratulations Lisa on the birth of your beautiful baby daughter Ruby, Donna sent me a picture, she's adorable..
Ben's gone into Carmarthen today, I think to get Katie a pressie for Valentine's Day and Harry has gone over to his friend Connor's for the afternoon. I'm just having a chill out day and catching up with my friends on Facebook..
