Re: What are you harvesting now?

The greenhouse plants look shabby but are still producing tomatoes and peppers.

Re: Life with no kitchen

It has cost me in bits and pieces to get this kitchen right. Found the new rubbish bin in the colour that I wanted. Got the handyman next door to put a screw in wall for clock - found that the plaster screed over the brick wall at the end was the thinnest that the workmen could possibly fit. Can't h...

Re: Life with no kitchen

Thank you for asking. There's one bit of wall that was too wet to paint when the painter was here - only a small strip. Will catch the supervisor Monday morning to get that fixed. Got me the right new rubbish bin from Argos - what I wanted was in the next day and it's the right colour for the kitche...

Re: Life with no kitchen

Tiling done - signs of workmen in the area but they have disappeared off to do other things in other places in the next three bungalows. I suspect that they can't go any further today as the plaster isn't quite dry enough. Of course I went out leaving the tiler working so have no real idea. Meantime...

Re: What are you harvesting now?

Dwarf beans, cabbage, kale, last of the peas, early cooking apples, pears, last of the butternut squash gone now (all the squash finished early), carrots and tomatoes, peppers, aubergines from the greenhouse
Sudden week of cold nights have bought an early end to some crops.

Re: Life with no kitchen

Think that we are a bit beyond that here Weedo. It's shabby in places at present but I'm told it will all come right in the end. Sounds as if your friend found a right set of incompetents (English traded up so that the Mods don't get offended). Anyway I'm told that the tiler can level up the sockets...

Re: Life with no kitchen

Methinks that your electrical fitters came out of the same box as the ones here Maggie. There's the string on the extractor fan. It can go to the right or the left of the cupboard below it but not straight down. They have left the ceiling fitting of an old alarm system which had pull strings. Nowada...

Re: Life with no kitchen

have just been taught something new. The new fuse box has two trip switches not one. So you can lose half the house power and not the other half. Now I know that, no problem. No need to call out the emergency electrician from social housing again. Well for that anyway. Trouble is that the cupboards ...

Re: The cellar !!

Chuckled at the title. On another forum the cellar is where the moderators go to confer upon suspicious posters - over tea and biscuits of course.

Re: Life with no kitchen

:lol: Weedo this is a social housing (provision for the poor) bungalow for older people in a line in a street on the way to the cemetery in a polite English village with one street in a conservation area going through the middle. The back garden is small and backs on to other family houses. You'd ca...
