Playing with my table top fridge cooler and warmer wide wheels and supercharger ( for fishing bait) has arrived just rearranging the shed to accommodate it on the shelving, she who must be obeyed won't let me keep maggots in the house fridge not keen on worms either for some strange reason :) :)


She who must be obeyed is playing with her electric assist bike loves it , I am am probbaly going to get one for rides out together to keep fit and active, don't run anymore duff knee , according to my GP swimming is better for all the joints but our local pool is always packed



Then just for a change I am going to mow and scarify the lawns , we do live in exciting times I may go sick tomorrow with mild hysteria :)

Been really warm today - 30C in the lounge which is just too hot for me - even with two fans blasting over me I actually felt nauseous, so went into the garden and sat in the shade for an hour and a half. Just come back inside and it's still too hot for me in the lounge.

May I suggest you take a tip from those in the Med air the house in the morning when its cool , then close the doors and windows blinds orf curtains to keep the hot air and sunlight out, then open all when it gets cooler

I'm going to sit in the garden - just for a change :)  In the past I've thought of moving to a flat but always said I'd miss my garden.  With what's happened this year I'm so glad I'm still here with my garden to sit in.

We also went to view a flat last year but I just couldn't imagine living there.  Our house is probably too big for us but at least we can sit in the garden and I can get away from football!
Everything I can't find is in a totally secure place.

Sheila, take the advice of somebody who moved to a flat 14 years ago, me, don't move to a flat you'll wish you hadn't.
I was warned by a neighbour before I moved, and she turned out to be right, she'd lived in a flat. Unfortunately I've lived and learned..

I never liked to live in a flat....My home after micky passed away, was too large for  me. So I put a divan bed in the dining room.....and I had the shower/toilet downstairs. And a very pretty garden to enjoy !....Stay in your home for as long as you can. Just put a divan in a room downstairs. The wardrobes etc can stay where they are.....The stairs will exercise the legs when you need to get some of the things from your x bedroom....gmx

Absolutely right granny moss, if I could go back to a house I would but property round my way is so expensive.
I feel trapped :( ??? .

When I was still married and the kids were at home I lived in quite a big house with lots of stairs, I was running up n down them every day, often. After my divorce and the house went, I moved to a wee bungalow and I love it, but miss the house despite the bad memories. Since I stay up in Caithness a lot at Himself's farm, we live in the old Cattleman's Cottage and it's all on one level, the big Farmhouse still has Himself's parents in it. I don't want to move over to it, I think I'd hate the stairs these days.

I grew up in a flat. I won't rule one out in the future. Yesterday we walked round the park, there is a family of herons nesting on a little island in the lake. 

Today, I walked up to the local shop for a couple of bits while my OH mowed and edged our small lawn.  Actually, its grass, lawn sounds far too pretentious!  I'm now sitting in the shade enjoying the garden while he makes lunch. The honeysuckle smells lovely.

The flat I live in has a residents committee, the politics of the place just don't work for me, but if it goes to a company to run the service charge will probably double. I can't win.

I lived in a flat for my first 18 years, but life was different then, no loud music or inconsiderate people.


I've lived in terraced, semi and detached houses, and would only ever consider a detached house or bungalow. My friend lived in a terrace with nice elderly neighbours, within a few years the old people died, their houses were broken up into flats and she landed up living next door to drug dealers and it was a reasonably nice area, so no guarantees.

Had a walk in the walk and a chat - distancing observed - with the friends who park their van in my yard - fed their dog with a treat - I know my place!

I discovered that when hand-washing, the temperature of the water makes no difference..I was a bit surprised but we must always believe the experts mustn't we.. 8)
