When You Nag Enough
I have nagged for a few weeks about getting a curtain pole cut down and fixed over the internal door leading to the Arctic utility room, were an icy blast comes through the gaps around the old door, I wanted to get a curtain fixed up. The nagging has paid off and hubby set to getting the job done.
This is just a temporary measure, Its a solid stone wall and took a bit of drilling.
I got the curtain up that I lined with thermal lining
It was cheaper to buy a pair of thermal linings than buy a single door lining
These were 60" x 90" and cost £20.95 I bought two packs of them, so I have enough to do some other doors, we have three external doors.
In return for putting up the curtain pole that was also a redundant one from when we moved in, I repaired his waterproof trousers
He had split them in a delicate area.
Today we have friends coming down for a few days, they will be arriving this afternoon, I have made a big pot of Stovies
Its another Scottish dish, made up from left over roast beef potatoes and onions, its now in the bottom oven and will be something warming for them when they arrive
I also have some bread dough proving
We will have fresh bread with the Stovies.
M who is coming really feels the cold so I have been getting the house all toasty warm and have hot water bottles at the ready for her and some extra blankets.
I am really excited about her arriving, she is a good crafting friend of mine so a couple of days will be spent crafting in the cabin, while her husband plays with hubby and his big boy toys.
I am just going to pop over and see C senior next door as its her birthday today.
Happy Birthday C senior.
