The window fitters have arrived. This is day two of the installation. Replacing dated 1980’s style brown plastic window frames with …. white plastic window frames. Aesthetically it would be more pleasing to have hardwood frames but from a maintenance point of view upvc is a clear winner. The garden room sliding doors at the rear of the property will be a contrasting dark gray and will slide back far enough to open up the room to the garden in summer.
The work should be finished by the end of the week. I just can’t wait to get my home back to myself. Luke and Andy are nice guys but Covid rules and regulations prevent us from casual chatting; they are not even allowed to accept cups of tea and biscuits!
Yesterday I did a Covid antibody test. It was part of a government sponsored research study. I had to prick my finger with a lancet to draw blood and then use something like a pregnancy test kit to get the result. This was followed by an on-line questionnaire. Easy enough to do and, as I expected, it was a negative result – no coronavirus antibodies. The spring-loaded lancet was a vicious piece of kit though, my finger is still bruised!
