I know what you are saying.............NOW WHAT!!!
As I said we had a great day, my dad and step-mum came up. My dad is great with wood, so he got busy making some shelves for my bathroom cupboard. He removed some rotten wood trim, and then he started to tidy up in the garage.
They brought up some stone cleaner, as the fireplace has been smoking badly and all the stone is black with soot. My step-mum set about cleaning all the stone's and what a difference. I wish I had taken a before photo. One stone was jet black, it is now pink.
Meanwhile I went out in the garden and picked up a pile of sticks and branches that I know the tractor won't run over, and placed them in the fire pit. Then in the afternoon, me and my step-mum started to attack the mutant thistles and the dandelions.
By 3:30pm we were pooped and they went home. So when dh came home we decided to go to Home Hardware to see how much patio doors were. We get into my car and set off, and go about a couple of metres and the car is making a heck of a noise. To cut a long story short, the struts have gone on my car. Now remember we have moved to a new area, so have no idea what garage is a good garage and what is a bad garage. So we call into this garage, and talk to the guy and he seems nice. So when you are reading this on Tuesday, the car will be towed to the garage, and I hope to have it back on Tuesday night. There will be a bill for at least $1,500 for that!! I mean its one thing after another.
So there you go another day in the life of that British woman!!! By the way we saw a turkey walk across the garden, saw a weasel in the garage, two hummingbirds also popped into the garage to talk to my dad, and my dad saw a pair of snipes.
