I am it took me 5 hours to fit the carpet in lithe van yesterday I’ll post photos later of the finished job .👍
No the wonder you're worn out today! 🤪
Well done lass. 👍

The mechanic I mentioned today has properly ripped off my friend. Turns out he's a young, jumped up whippersnapper who doesn't appear to know his erse from his elbow, and even less about cars! She doesn't know that much about cars either, which was why this particular guy has been able get away with daylight robbery.

The good news is her little vintage motor has now been safely transported somewhere safe and is now in good hands, so she is smiling again and a lot less stressed. But she now has a heap of complete unnecessary and very expensive new parts she needs to return to supplier for a refund.

We all live and learn, ey? ;)

You need to have a word with him to explain things. :)

Finally up and about....made tea at 6am but started reading..fatal! Lovely day, hopefully no rain as need to put the MH bed back together, took it apart to carry some 4m long lovely oak planks we were given. Bench for the garden and decking steps in the making. It's really useful being able to completely remove the central bit of the fixed bed, but I had to dump all the bedding in the spare room...the MH bed was all made up ready to go...anywhere!
Just got to get mum up and moving now, for someone who says she sleeps very little, she never wakes up! :unsure:

After living with bare boards and concrete floors for 5 years, I can empathise with the joy of flooring. The bliss of being able to walk around barefoot :)

Morning all ... breezy here today !
Moving son into his barber shops today with heavy chairs mirrors and other stuff that's been cluttering up my house.
This is where the camper comes in handy 👍
If we're lucky me and paul might actually get to spend some time doing what we want to do for a change 🙄
