I did squat all on Monday, it was so cold and wet it felt like March or April, not June 1st. I had to put the heating on later in the afternoon as it was so cold. What's the weather like where you live, as it feels as though it has been wet and cold forever here in Southern Ontario. I don't remember ever having to put the heating on in June.
I had to go and fill the gas tanks up for the lawn mowers. We have two a 10 litre tank and a 25 litre tank. Gas was up to 99.9 cents per litre, I was shocked, and due to it being that expensive and I put 20 litres of gas in my car, the bill came to $55, thank goodness I don't go very far. How expensive is gas/petrol where you live? If it continues to be this price, I can see me not cutting Kamikaze Hill and the field that often to try and save costs.
The roofing guys turned up today, but then it started to rain, so they got very little done and so they are now coming back on Wednesday. A bit of good news and a bit of bad news from them. The good news, is the flashing they were going to put between the house and the extension roof, well there is no need now, as the way the roof was installed they did it another way. The bad news, we will have to re-shingle the roof in 8 - 10 years, as the shingles/roof tiles they put on were "organic" ones (???) and have proven to be not as long/hard wearing.
Not sure if anyone will find this interesting, but this is a photo of the type of fence we have on the north, south and part of the west side of the property. It's pretty common up here. The rest of the fencing is your normal wire fencing.
Now we took down this light fixture in the family room and replaced it with a light/fan. I just wanted to show the before and after of the light, as you can see how dirty it was. It's actually a very well made light fixture, probably circa 1974 (?), the top is brass, and we have decided to hang it in the front hall.
I'll take a photo of it when dh gets it installed.
