|I really need to get rid of that wallpaper|
Graham, our joiner, is here today to finish off the doors. He arrived bright and early, just after seven. I had only just finished my porridge and got dressed. He is a very good worker, just gets on with the job and doesn’t even like to stop for coffee and biscuits.
The doors blocking up the archway into the garden room are in situ and he is now working on the glazed doors into the hallway. Rick is curious but I’m keeping him out of the way because Graham is more of a cat man.
Paul put the old doors on Freecycle in case anyone wanted them. He got a very quick response and Dodgy Dave is coming this afternoon to pick them up!
I see the Christmas adverts have started on the television. There was a new one last night for Chanel perfume. There was a time when, like Marilyn Monroe, I would only wear Chanel No. 5 in bed. Nowadays it’s pyjamas and E45*.
(*E45 is a dermatological cream for dry skin)
I hope you remember to button them all the way to the top!ReplyDelete
E45 is usually on the 'What can we bring? ' list. Baggy Tee-shirt covers a multitude of dry skin.ReplyDelete
Is it not available in France?Delete
You have done well to hook up with a hard-working and capable artisan like Graham. Such men are worth their weight in gold which will probably influence his invoice...or you could try Chanel No. 5.ReplyDelete
He was brilliant but not the type to be influenced by Chanel No.5.Delete
How I love that last paragraph!!ReplyDelete
Sadly it's true.Delete
How true, baggy tee shirts, flannel shorts & Neck Armor - supposed to heal a wrinkled & drooping neck but I think it makes wonderful foot & leg moisturizer!!! Sometimes I even add a drop of Jovan Musk oil - how I still love that stuff!!ReplyDelete
Scent makes Paul sneeze!Delete
Oh how I despise all those pouting, windswept, emaciated, narcissistic, models (and the perfume they advertise). What on earth has their gangly prancing got to do with fragrance?ReplyDelete
I can do windswept.Delete
Can't wait to see the doors, all completed. Especially those, which show outdoors.ReplyDelete
A worker like that, is worth his weight in gold!!! And I'm sure you know, and appreciate that.
He worked so hard. Paul now has to varnish the doors before I'm allowed to remove the protective plastic and see the finished product.Delete
