House repairs

on June 2, 2010

I’ve finally started on the huge list of things that need doing round the house. Rather than saving up and having them all done together (which never works ‘cos I’m rubbish at saving) I’m having stuff done as I can afford it. Today the marvellous Dave from the Bolton Handyman Service came and blocked in my stairs (which were open at the back and have scared me since I moved in), put up some hanging rails in the kitchen, fixed the fence and best of all, assembled my new greenhouse. I’m so happy now! Poor Dave, on the other hand, is probably shattered and never wants to see a greenhouse again! It’s going to take some time and a lot of hard work (poor, poor Dave) to get the house anywhere near Apartment Therapy standard, but it’s a start. And the kitchen looks so much better already.

Finally on the home improvement front, I’ve wanted a set of flying ducks ever since I moved up north – so now I have one! They’re kitsch, they’re retro and they make me smile.

    love the ducks – sometimes it’s just soothing to the soul to have tacky things.

    we have pink flamingos in our front yard.
