Garage Day 15 - I think

Took my time yesterday in the garage and felt okay, so another day in today. Waiting a little due to the cold, freezing fog and dampness around.


Garage Day

Although not feeling like it I am going to work in the garage today for a few hours. Still relatively tired. The quicker its finished the more I can continue my other objectives.

Garage Day 13

Had a 3.5 mile walk yesterday with no issues.

Today at home and may have a few hours back in the garage later. Very cold morning so may wait till temperature rises a little.

Garage-WorkStore Day 12

Spent yesterday in the garage. Started installing one side of the plasterboard on the wall. May get the wall finished by the end of the day. Cold morning though. A hard frost.

Garage-WorkStore Day 10

Most of the frame work now complete. Hopefully finish that today and install the door. Hope!

Garage-WorkStore Day 9

After moving everything again in the garage to gain access to proposed wall area, I managed to get part of a frame work up by 17:00. Hopefully a bit easier working in the garage today. Well I can hope so.

Garage-WorkStore Day 8

Tired but ceiling is now up. Very tired but starting on wall today.

Garage-WorkStore Day 7

Another day in the garage. I believe the hardest part of the ceiling now finished with some smaller areas to be completed. Feel shattered.

Garage-WorkStore Day 6

Although still extremely tired after Saturday's work, I am in the progress of maybe having a few hours in the garage today. Still feeling rough though.

Garage Day Part 2 Day 3

Received a phone call yesterday morning from B&Q saying that there would be no delivery due to an accident to their lorry. Earliest revisit Friday. That blew my progress. Gave me time to go to Stockton, pick up fittings and fit garage radiator. See what turns up today. The internal garage door should arrive but as yet no time indicated.

Garage work cont. 2

Not a good night. Woke up at 03:00 and difficult to regain sleep.

First impression on a text received at 07:00 was B&Q now not coming till tomorrow but on re-examine it turns out it is the delivery of a door. So, fingers crossed mats still arriving today.

Garage work cont.

Continuing to work in the garage today. Going to be cold as temperature has dropped dramatically overnight with a hard frost. Getting ready for tomorrows delivery of wood and plasterboard from B&Q.

Home Work.

Still busy and will be to after the new year at least. Limited to what I can do due to the garage not finished so as yet no heating to fulfil. Still suffering from Fridays very cold day in the garage. I have had to move back into the house and start creating here instead but limited to space. This the reason that things are going slow. More to follow………

Home Work.

Still very busy at home and garage. Up at 05:30 this morning preparing for a delivery. Also designing material for mugs so no time to venture out for phots or shopping.

Gardage work.

Starting this morning modifying the garage today. The end result will be splitting the garage in two, one half storing materials the other utilising it into a mini studio.


Managed to install outside xmas lights late yesterday but the ones purchased last year, half are not working. Will have a go at repairing the fault today but not looking good.

Later today hoping to be back on the computer. Significant amount of work to do.


Hooray I've finished updating the eBay site, selling old gas stock I've collected over the years. Sold two items so far, so hopefully it will help someone. Better there than in the tip.

Not sure what to do next. Got so much to do it is becoming a headache.


I had to venture out this morning sol little time left for me to finish eBay store (gas related old stock) but should be finished by Friday.

Deja vue

Sorry for the delay in updating blog today. Yes, decided to continue today and finish uploading any redundant old stock I may have to eBay. Today pieces of Twin Wall Flue and a Flue Liner Kit. Old stuff so I doubt anyone will want it. We will see.

Flexible Flue Liner for sale.

Still working with eBay

Still uploading info and pics to eBay relating to old found stock I have accumulated over the years, rather than ending up in the bin. Should be finished by the end of day.

Work with ebay.

Busy with eBay at the moment. Taking photos of heating components and adding them to eBay account to sell on their store. Shame to stick them in the bin.


By the end of yesterday I managed to unload waste, consisting mainly of cardboard and household window units at the recycle centre, plus household metal scarp at the scrap merchant. Then as the day got dark empty the remainder of the van contents, mainly rubbish again, before tea and before I froze.

This morning I continued emptying the van for a time before dinner and deciding to finish for the day due to the cold. Now going to have a long 5 minutes and warm up.


Decided to get rid of van so today spent getting rid of rubbish then tidying it up.


Cold again and decided, like yesterday, to stay in and do exercises. I did pop to the Sainsbury's only to re-pressurise car tyres, but things did not go to plan. New card machine did not like me. Had to call for help to which the staff very helpful and sorted it out.

At home I found a B&W photo of Winterton hospital and decided to have a go at applying colour to it. Took an hour or so and the result below.

Winterton BW-Convert

It's Friday

Yes, it's Friday and all I can say is, where did the week go?

Secondly, it maybe Friday but working from home may have it's benefits but you tend to work late and work weekends. So no rest for me again this weekend.


Had the covid booster jab this morning. Seemed the whole of Sedgefield was there before 09:00 this morning. It was packed. Well done to all those involved providing the service.


Having a slightly quieter day today., or at least trying too. No walks today either today.

Weather slightly better than yesterday. At least the wind has dropped significantly. Fed the birds and that is as much activity I have done apart from sitting at the computer.

Cold n' busy.

Too busy to walk today. At least busy I forget about the cold. Getting old and moaning too much.

Weather not bad this morning. Slightly more cloud than yesterday against the blue sky with minute drifts of drizzle appearing now and then. Still relatively cold.

A bit of exercise at home rather than a walk this morning before continue working on computer.
