Does anyone remember the Peter, Paul and Mary song, "If I had a Hammer"
"If I had a hammer
I'd hammer in the morning
I'd hammer in the evening
All over this land
I'd hammer out danger
I'd hammer out a warning
I'd hammer out love between my brothers and my sisters
All over this land"
Well with great excitement I used a hammer on Monday to hammer four nails in. Dh let me do it, which for those of you who know dh, that is an achievement in itself. You see when God was handing out "How to use tools skills," I was back in the "How to shop skills" line for a second time, as I figured I wouldn't need the how to use tools skills, how to shop skills would be more use to me!!!
So as it was just me and dh on Monday, I had to help him in the attic with some things, and he let me hammer in some nails. Now, dh must have hammered in a dozen while I hammered in my one, but I persevered and I managed to do it!! Am I any fonder of using tools, no, but I would like a pink hammer for the kitchen as a hammer does a multitude of things, whereas using the rolling pin, the heel of my shoe, and whatever I have handy to hammer in things doesn't quite cut it!!
We worked away all day on Monday around the house and got a lot achieved. Including getting the insulation delivered and put in the extension basement. We are still around 8 bundles short, but we need some different kind, which wasn't on sale, so we don't have to get it yet.
We have the little dehumidifier going in the extension basement and we empty that probably every other day. The big dehumidifier in the old basement is emptied on a daily basis but makes a huge difference down there. Sitting next to the dehumidifier is the new toilet for the downstairs bathroom. We're in no panic to install it at the moment, there are more important jobs to do.
The blue bottle/house fly situation is still bad, but I do think its calming down slightly!!
