I procrastinated for a month or so (to be fair, I have been collecting information and brochures on various models), and then realised my car tax was due at the end of October, anyway.
Posting of articles from Wordpress to LJ is still working, it is just grabbing the comments back that is failing
While the bathroom was out of action, for a week and a bit, I’d been having wash-basin washes, and, once the bath was re-fitted, a bath. A few years ago, I would have thought nothing of it. When I was young, I was brought up on a bath a week, and “a good wash” every day in between. However, since my 30’s I’ve always preferred a shower, and a flannel wash no longer does it for me – I know I am clean, but I don’t feel clean.
Meanwhile I discovered these on eBay. They are framed, and therefore not flimsey like other clipons, they are fairly flat and not curved, which means they fit well to most prescription frames (at least those I have tried). And they are only 4 quid, including postage.
I usually find that by watching a movie first, when I get around to the novel it yields even more plot detail, and I can enjoy the story all over again. In this case, the film differed from the novel in a few important points, and I actually preferred the film to the novel.
I reckoned I had enough soil to fill two of the four troughs, together with a little added compost, and my plan was to fill those two troughs and plant them with winter veg, while leaving the other two troughs empty until spring.
I had no idea what I was going to do with it, but the book I was reading said butter smokes well, so I tried it.
I was contemplating wall-mounting it with a tilt bracket, but today I decided to move some furniture about. This was not a decision lightly made, as I had only just got all my audio-visual separates set up.
There will be a BBQ area with some seating behind the garage and a table with seating on the main patio. The gravelled area is going to have 3-4 large vegetable troughs, giving me approximately 6m2 of growing area.
After 4 more days, I couldn’t resist any longer, so I opened the bottle. I know I should have left it a couple of days longer, but it was good – effervescent, instead of fizzy, but it definitely had the right taste.
