Oh dear

Post by leseil612 on Mon Mar 16, 2015 4:50 pm

I have just popped into my man cave for the first time in 5 days. I have got myself into a unending amount of work.

1. I have to erect the greenhouse I have bought, I have to prepare the sight and make a flat secure firm base. This part I have just finished. I then have to erect it and there appears to be thousands of pieces in the box, don't know where and when to start yet. I must start soon though as tomato plants and cucumber plants will need to be in soon.

2. We have bought all new kitchen furniture which I have to put together, instructions not very clear.

3. Have also bought new doors for the hallway, there are 6 of them in there and I have to fit them, joinery is not one of my areas of expertise but her who must be obeyed did not like the doors that we have had for 12 years as there are some imperfections in the glass.

4. We had a gale last week and two of my chickens got out of their run, we are combing the neighbourhood for signs of chickens or piles of feathers, depending upon who finds them first us or Mr Fox.

5. She who must be obeyed wants the kitchen re decorated when the new furniture is in place, she does do all the painting on the new doors but I do half the emulsion painting of the walls.

6. I love having a protect to work on as it gives a retired senior citizen a purpose in life but I am beginning to feel overwhelmed as all these jobs are urgent and there are only so many working hours in a day.

To add insult to injury I have just noticed the offering from Martin on the new programme that superseded ConvertX which is what I wanted and have missed it by a day

Ces't la vis!!!!!

Better pull your finger out and get some of those jobs finished Les.
Then you can sit back and put your feet up.
May be easier and cheaper to have another holiday.
Good luck!!

Thanks guys, but further troubles have been heaped upon me, I will be glad when 2015 has expired as everything that can go wrong since returning from Oz has gone wrong. I can show the greenhouse that I so lovingly erected.




We just had a nice little gale 4 days after I had finished erecting it. I am glad that I am an atheist then I don't have to think that someone up there doesn't like me. ces't la vie

Aaah.. Les,
What that now means is.... I can now shout you a few beers while we watch the cricket.

Method to my madness

Ouch... Had some rough storms through my neck of the woods late last week. Our basement flooded (again) and the worst we had to do was pick up a few wheelbarrows full of branches. Got our roof redone last fall and it held up fine.

Hopefully the green house was covered by some insurance for you, Les.

Good news at last, the greenhouse supplier refunded the money. Sorry about your problem Tracy, but as long as the roof survives things can only get better. That is unless your basement area is holding valuable items.
