The beautiful plan I had for today went to rats as soon as we woke up to snow! Lots of snow. The forecast said there may be a little, and then turn to rain, but that did not look likely, so instead of a lazy morning and out after lunch, we headed straight out this morning to get the shopping.
When I say shopping – I don’t mean shopping – I mean shopping! We started at Wickes and bought treated wood to fix a walkway in the garden, a brass thingy and a plastic ball to fix the toilet that won’t stop filling, a few brass ring things and 3m of plastic pipe to fix the overflow. Then on to Homebase (I like Homebase – it has “housey” things!) where we bought paint brushes, glue, some plastic protective sheets (for when I slap paint around) and some new overalls (to slap around paint in!). Then off to a warehouse shop to buy some ceramic dishes for hubbies oil painting – they sell egg holders that make fantastic mixing pallets!
Finally we went to Sainsbury’s for the food shop, but not before a quick pit stop in their cafe for a coffee and a shared egg sandwich.
Home mid afternoon and we managed to get out the old overflow pipe and put in the shiny new one – but not without having to move the washing machine and one of the freezers out, thereby exposing several years of cobwebs and grime – I cleaned it all before they went back!
By mid afternoon the snow turned to rain – but it is still cold and the snow is still on the ground – so no venturing outside today. I’m hoping the rain may stop by tomorrow and we can get out for some fresh air of the walking/running variety.
Have a wonderful Sunday folks.
