This is not about the weather
Because we’re all sick of it.
Yesterday was Sunday, I know that cos to-day is Monday,
I was going to blog about to-day but nothing much has happened, but as things did happen yesterday I’ll tell you about that instead.
For some months I’ve not been able to lock my back door in cold weather, so last winter I bought a couple of door chains and used them instead. Gradually the front door lock also started to seize up and I had to stop using it. It could get a bit embarrassing having to ask visitors to use the back door, like they were hawkers or something, it leads into my back porch, where I keep all the dog stuff , plus shoes and coats, you know the kind of place. I’d tried graphite, WD40 candle wax and oil, but the locks just completely jammed.
Eventually I asked Ross, my grand-daughter Sarah’s boy friend if he would come and fit new locks as he’s good at that sort of thing being a builder. I also asked Martin my son on law if he would also come and help out fitting some new fence panels,as they were getting a bit rickety, and my neighbour had backed into two of them [denied]. He not only did that but pruned a lot of rather overgrown holly and Jasmine. It was a freezing cold day so some warm food with hot soup helped keep them from freezing. that home baking comes in handy.
Not the most interesting of logs I agree, but it kept one old lady happy knowing that the doors were secure at night and I had a bit of pleasure going back and forth trying out the different ways I could go in and out, also in case I shut the front door while it’s still on the latch and lock myself out. but I’ll sort it.
Ruby’s asleep right now but I’m going to have to wake her up to go for her walk, It’s my dancing night tonight, and we’ll have to kick our heels high to help keep warm,.
