Almost there

Hi Folks,

Yes finally regular posting can get back on line as we are finally nearing the end of what has turned out to be quite a large building project.

The new light is going into the bathroom as I speak, the tiling is almost done and the bath is just about ready for use. But more importantly we have a working toilet and a sink ( which seems to be almost big enough to double for a bath) which means the days of having to use the kitchen sink are behind is.

Although one downside we have discovered to the new tiles on the floor is that at 6am in the morning they are pretty darn cold. Me thinks Grumpy and I will be searching for new pairs of slippers come the weekend.

Yes I'm on earlys this week and we've reached that depressing time of year when it is still pitch black when I have to get up for work.

I will be doing a few more posts then usual this week to bring you all up to speed on a few interesting comings and going that have happened during the enforced break.

One of these was the two day training course I went on with work, which I passed with a 100% mark meaning I am now a certified International specialist or CIS. When I mentioned this to grumpy his response was to ask if this meant I worked for the co-op insurance or was I just somebody who investigated crime scenes who couldn't spell :-)

Later folks
