Operation Move the Rayburn: Latest update:
It took a lot of thinking about,
and also involved a pulling apart of the first one to make the second,
but the trolley, 'tis done!
It is a maiden trolley,
which may or may not survive having the Rayburn put on its back,
this being the first time in use.
And hurrah for Lester for persevering with the making of it.
And it came to me that this day I really ought to make an effort for our kitchen as well,
so this is what I decided to do:
which was get our kettle cleaned up,
having already fished out the whistle from behind one of the freezers,
from where it has lived for several months,
so the kettle was not only blackened over,
but whistle-less as well.
How, you might ask, could I have been so horrid to this workhorse of a kettle
to neglect it thus!
I hang my head in shame, and say "I do not know"!
Not to worry,
and internet search came up with bicarb of soda, or crumpled aluminium foil as an aid to getting the muck off,.
Tried either, and no, no cleaner did the kettle become.
but using the two together and look!....
..... a glimmer of stainless steel from beneath the grime.
However, the job was not finished,
Lester called me to help with something or other,
and then there was the cooking of the dinner,
and then a popping along the lane for coffee with friends,
and so the day went, and disappeared into the night,
and still the kettle remains in its blackened state,
....but at least I made a start!
And the sun, it did not shine today,
so the sunbed was left in its position on the stairs,
defending the upstairs from the rottweiller girls,
who seem to think that the cavernous upper parts of the house,
need filling with pee / poo.
But it did get an outing into the sunshine with me yesterday,
and we had a delicious roasting,
me and the sunbed,
ancient that it is,
and of a decent age that I am,
enjoying winter sun.
And so it is off to bed that I go,
with another day done,
and gosh, how 2015 is galloping by already!
Bye for now,
Lots of love,
