Good evening

I have had a couple of days of tradies over her getting quotes for a few odd jobs!

Been doing a lot of ironing and housework today too

Had the heating on nearly all day today as it is ever so cold

I'm waiting for my pupils to undilate. Went for routine eye exam early this morn, and I still can't see right. Stupid dilating drops, I don't understand why they have to last so long.

Step one of sanding and painting. Deck railings, stair risers and the apron around the base of the deck. Looks pretty good. Next is the hard stuff. Sanding and painting the deck.

We have just had a paver around to give us a quote on some paving repairs, have to wait on the quote, which no doubt will be heaps!

It is raining so much, but nice and cosy in here

I just finished dinner and am looking for a halfway decent movie to watch.

Same thing happens to me and will last into the next day. Of course they say it won't but it always does. Then when it's over my eyes feel very tired .. it's just miserable.

Hope it's all better for you tomorrow Dawg.

Finishing a project that will, at least for a time, foil our lunatic dog and her partner, our granddog.

Some of you may recall that I regularly hang laundry on the line outside. Harley and Baxter, the granddog, have never bothered things I've put on the clothesline. However.....

SOMEONE ate my basket that I kept my clothespins in! Don't know who. No one is fessing up. Hmmmm?! And I really liked that basket.

In any case my best friend and I were discussing the situation a few days ago and I've just finished what might be a solution. Well, given the penchant these two canine nutballs have for getting into mischief, it might only be a temporary fix.

I stopped at our area Goodwill store on Tuesday and bought a child's sundress for a dollar. Stitched the bottom together at the base of its ruffle. Clipped it into a plastic hanger that some shorts or some such thing came on from a store, filled it with my clothespins and will give it a spin the next time I hang laundry.

We'll see if those two thieving destroyers give it a second look. I'm happy with it.
