Ha ha, yes cheers Nom, it's dirty and painful work Nom, the little bits of breeze block got everywhere, up me nose, in me hair, and even in my underwear when I got undressed to go for a shower....

It wasn't until today that I found most of the damage to my thumbs and knuckles after they stiffend up overnight....

As I sit perusing the forum I can hear the plasterers trowel scouring the walls, I'll wake up and it's all been a bad dream.....

I'll play the long game, and give her a 'False sense of security' and then call her from the Premier Inn in Hull...Just like the words to the song:- By the time I get to Phoenix she'll be waking......She didn't believe I'd really leave her.....cos I left that girl so many times before....... I don't think 'Hull' has the same ring to it though.....

I miss Glen Campbell and his songs.....

However, I can tile walls as good as any - So there.

Now, I have heard on good authority, that the best parties are in the kitchen, so when it is finished - hint hint

Keep us posted Foxy.
You'll always find me in the kitchen at parties Sweetie Pie... And if you come, you'd better bring your plasterers trowel with you and show me what a smoothie you are.....

Re: Bob's Bits.

Allen the plasterer did a sterling job on my kitchen, and what a nice bloke. Although he cleaned up the best he could, he did leave me with quite a lot of surplus plaster festooning pipes, plug boxes and other orifices that shouldn't normally be submerged in plaster. No work on the kitchen today to allow the plaster to dry, so I used the opportunity to visit the Household Recycling Site with the accumulated debris that adorned the garage making it difficult to squeeze in the motor.

It was while I was struggling with a large heavy box full of old floor tiles at the dump when a sharp eyed jobsworth approached me, and after a brief forage around my box of tiles, informed me that they were 'Marley Tiles' and contained asbestos. And "They can not be deposited here without special packaging and an inspection from a council official"... So I had to take them home.....

Kevin massaged my piriformis and suggested that I allow it to settle down for a few weeks and see how it goes. It always feels brilliant after a session for the rest of the day, but seems to stiffen up during the night, which makes me think that the problem still exists, I worry that I might not come back from this........

I've always been known as 'Mr Positive' Summer, 'Mr Optimistic' but due to recent events I'm struggling to keep it together... It seems like one problem after another, and each morning I wake up to yet another unexpected challenge.......

"My life has changed in oh so many ways,
My independence seems to vanish in the haze,
and every now and then I feel so insecure
and I know, I need you like, I've never done before"

"Help me if you can I'm feeling doooouwn,
And I do appreciate you being rooooound,
Help me get my feet back on the groooound,
Won't you pleeeeeease Help meeeeouw"....

Re: Bob's Bits.

Foxy please remember that Mr Positive hasn't disappeared, he is still there but just feeling a bit fed up.....like everybody does!

In the early stages of my cancer treatment I was feeling really down, till I realized that the hospital were not making sure they had enough Chemo nurses to look after their patients. That gave me something to do, so I wrote to the hospital and my MP ( I am good at complaining ) and my cancer became less significant, because I had something to focus on & feel good about. The hospital got more nurses and I survived my cancer.

Just wait till you have a lovely new kitchen and the sun is beckoning you to go for a run. You may not return to being as good as you were ( we are all getting older) but you will have a strong desire and return to doing something that gives you pleasure.
