day-off objectives ...

Well, I can't say I've completely done everything I intended to do today, but it's certainly been a jam-packed day - there's nothing worse than wasting a day off, but the temptation's always there, especially after a (comparative) lie-in!

So... I admit it. There are still four bags of garden rubbish and a large number of brambles on the terrace. We didn't make it to the tidy tip, as we had a trip to B&Q followed by an afternoon at Beth's parents for Beth's Dad's birthday.

Which brings me nicely onto objective number two - the replacement of the valve that feeds the cold water tank. It's the noisiest, leakiest thing in the world (nearly) and desperately needs replacing. Christopher and I popped into the loft after lunch to plan the job, but having spent just two or three minutes in the stifling heat, there was no way I was going to carry out the task today!

A mere ?6.50 later we had arrived home with a new valve (I have no idea how I'm going to attach it, but I can assure you that the mains will be off, and the tank will be drained beforehand!), huge orange ball and roll of PTFE tape. Now to wait for the next drizzly weekend (or whenever I pluck up the courage!)

It's been a fairly 'internet-free' few days, actually - not many links to choose from, although I've been trying to do my inbox filing on-and-off over the last few days. From over 500 items to none at all (and lots of new folders) - I can only guess how long it'll remain like that.

Back to working on my fledgling (and slow-forming) new blog, then...
