Ok, so not necessarily bike related but thought it’d be interesting to find out what takes up/how you spend your time without going into all the miniscule detail ala facearse.
So today I mostly jetwashed the MIL’s drive and path in front of her bungalow in Kernow in between the showers. The majority of it is typical construction round here from the middle/ last last century with chippings which I’m guessing comes from the china clay mines. Bloody PITA it is
Much excitement for me. Working from home - got up, walked and fed our dog, worked, went for a run, worked some more. This was followed by some more feeding of the dog, doing some housework and cooking dinner. What a rollercoaster .
That said, when I WFH it saves a 4am start to fit in both my run and walking the dog before the commute to the office and the commute home again .
Spent the day tiling a corner of the living room, ready to install a new mult-fuel stove to keep us warm this winter without needing to use so much electricity. Doing my bit to fight back against the thieving energy suppliers.
Had our flu jabs at the local Boots pharmacy, so much better experience than our waste of space health centre.
Then I emailed South West Water to report Littleade , it’s pissing down but there’s still a hosepipe ban down here.
Really? Wish you’d said earlier as it would have saved me a job. The MIL didn’t tell me, but there again she’s 89 and got dementia. Best not carry on with it tomorrow as planned then. Ta for the heads up as there’s not one on at home I never thought to check
We used to burn logs, not bought but gathered from fallen trees and cut up by me, but I had to spend a whole day a week with the log splitter and chainsaw to keep the stove fed, which became a PITA, so we went over to smokeless fuel. We found it better because it burns cleaner and slower, and stays in all night, or all day if we’re going out. It’s slightly dearer this year than last, but still not expensive. We’ve pensioned off our old stove and bought a shiny new enamelled one. Once installed, it will be kept going until the spring.
