Mews Flash: Almost sorted...

Ann and Lee drove over to John Lewis in Leicester to pick-up a few final bits and pieces for Lee’s new place in Avondale Mews and also to return the damaged roller-blind that was delivered last week. They were out for most of the day having incorporated B and Q into their day-out! 

After a hurried curry-dinner (yum yum), we all popped down to the Mews to finish as many of the little jobs off as possible – hanging pictures; putting up curtains; replacing the toilet seat; hanging the bedroom mirror, adding a towel rail in the kitchen as well as utensil thingy and finally, checking the troublesome internet connection – that’s still not working! I couldn’t do the soap dish for the shower because the battery on my drill packed-up (strange, as it’s been on-charge for about six-months!)

Whilst we were there, we also got rid of the mountains of cardboard that’s accumulated by putting it into the spanking new wheelie-bin, provided yesterday by Kettering Council.

9.30pm Job done – and we’re pretty knackered but pleased with ourselves as the place is almost ready now for Lee to move into permanently! There’s still a few more jobs to do, but they can be sorted as-and-when.

Just time to catch Doctor Who on Sky+, and see how badly we did at the Eurovision Song Contest!
