White Marks

DSC_3968

The day starts slowly and stays slowly. I relax in the relaxing chair and put on Doc Martin.

DSC_3971

Series one ends!

DSC_3991

And series two begins.

DSC_3973

Eventually I got out of the relaxing chair, look at the four plants that came from QVC and realise I should go outside and plant them.

DSC_3980

This leads to a serious amount of weeding.

DSC_3979

Really a serious amount of weeding yet again.

DSC_3981

But it all looks more like in control.

DSC_3982

And neater.

DSC_3984

And now there is somewhere to plant those plants.

DSC_3985

Lets hope they survive the winter, the instructions said plant now.

DSC_3986

See the flowers in February through to May!

DSC_3989

That will have to be seen to be believed.

DSC_3994

Around my parents later I redo the lettering on my car and then do my brothers. He won’t have wanted me to have have done his.

DSC_3992

But I knew they would look great. And they do. Only I only had time to do three of the four wheels before it got too dark. I know that will have pleased him too.

heading back to the cosy place.

Sometimes You Have To Say Goodbye Eventually

DSC_3945

So much to do, yet for some reason I can’t get out of this comfy bed. Perhaps its because my tinnitus is driving me mad, here in bed away from the world I’m cosy, safe and sulky. Eventually I get up, which has screwed my plan up for the day. The garden gets mowed though.

DSC_3946

I do some weeding and then I cook some sausage sandwiches and eat them by the water side.

DSC_3949

It is so peaceful here. Out in the garden I feel alive once more.

DSC_3948

And I’m still getting random flowers.

DSC_3947

I get the water feature working again, drop a bit of washing up liquid in it to clean it up.

DSC_3950

And then move the trailer and washing machine onto the car.

DSC_3953

We go for a little ride.

DSC_3954

A little ride to say goodbye. And here it is left, although it was meant to be put in the skip behind. I did look in the skip and thought how the hell am I going to get it in there, when one of the chaps saw me and shouted to me to just leave it there, they would sort it out.

DSC_0001

I head around my parents and start work on the body work.

DSC_3956

After doing the front arch and cocking up, I rub it off and try again.

DSC_3960

The rea sill though on the drivers side is done good enough.

DSC_3961

And having been outside, I feel good. I feel real good.

DSC_3962

But it is time to go home and have a shower.

The Same Title

DSC_3935

Yay another parcel, even more exciting than last weeks parcel. Do you know what it is?

DSC_3937

Well the ash tray in the MX5 is way past its best. Age has just got hold of the plastic.

DSC_3940

So out it comes and on goes the new top cover. £15 very well spent. I also put on some new screws that have for some reason gone for a walk, one for the hood handle, one for the passenger blind, and one for the drivers side inner door handle.

DSC_3944

And so I sit down, slide a DVD in and consider how did they get away with calling this film the same as the last? So this is the Blair Witch sequel. I didn’t think much of that all that time back then in the cinema, but this, at home was really really good.

A New Dawn

DSC_3933

I’ve had few parcels today.I know what they are and I’m excited.

DSC_3928

There is one particular TV series I really enjoy. And wow I didn’t quiet realise how many series there are. I’ve never avidly watched it, but if I have turned on the box I’ve always enjoyed the life of the village

DSC_3931

and the relationship of the the Doc and the Teacher.

DSC_3930

And if I’m honest some of it is just the fact I find the teacher really fanciable, so it makes viewing even more enjoyable.

Screenshot_20171015-233225

Then I realised that back in the early nineties I used to enjoy another show. A show where Louisa was dressed in a uniform.

Screenshot_20171015-233927

Another show I enjoyed avidly.

Screenshot_20171015-233929

Because her and Eric was in it. Mainly her though.

IMG_20171016_074632

n The Preston Front. For some reason I remember a Chinese Restaurant in it too, but can’t recall why…

Back

DSC_3902

It’s day light, I head into the garden.

DSC_3906

I head in the garden to see the water fountain.

DSC_3901

I smile.

DSC_3910

I do a bit of gardening, pick the apples I have grown.

DSC_3911

Cut the lillies back and then notice.

DSC_3912

look he’s back. There by the water feature.

DSC_3916

Yeah the frog is back, If only he would move into the pool, but I guess at the moment it is like a house without furniture, and fridge with no food.

Water Works

DSC_3864

I get home from work. Do a bit on my skoda’s wheel arch and then decide to give the paint bubbles on my MX5 a poke.

DSC_3865

I then wish I hadn’t.

DSC_3869

To sooth the soul I go to ASDA and buy a plug. I wire it up in the garage to the cable and then pop outside to the pool. oooohhhh look at that.

DSC_3872

I now have a fountain.

DSC_3874

How wonderful.

DSC_3882

Small but nice.

DSC_3884

Yeah I’m pleased with that.
