Domestic disruption, and blog absences

For the next 7-8 days at least, I will not always be around on the blogs. We have a painter coming in to decorate some rooms, as well as new windows being fitted to the whole house.

Things will have to be moved around of course, and I will have to try to keep out of the way. I should get some chance to look at the blog in the evenings, and hopefully reply to comments sometimes, as well as reading your posts.

But I have to apologise in advance if I end up missing many of them completely, and if some comments you leave might appear to have been ignored.

I wanted to let you know, in case you wondered where I had gone, maybe even thought I might have finally dropped off Pete’s perch. πŸ™‚

Best wishes to all, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Lara. We made it up to 17 C today, with some afternoon sun. It will be colder for the coming weekend though. No complaints from me, as long as it isn’t raining. πŸ™‚
      Best wishes, Pete.


  1. Disruption reigns in our house too, so I know what you are going through – well, sort of. Our main bathroom is being remodelled and the front room tiled. On top of that, I’ve had no keyboard for two days so this comment is belated, Meet you on the other side.

  2. I had some windows replaced a couple of years ago, but they were only the front windows, and they were very good. Not so the company who were supposed to put the scaffolding up, and were late to come and late to take them out as well… But, as you say, one never knows how these things will go. I hope the disruption and the problems are kept to a minimum (although I saw some of the comments… Oh dear). It’s good to know your absence is not due to any personal or family issues. I’m sure everything will be good afterwards, but it can be a pain while it’s going on…
    Good luck, Pete!

  3. The OH’s worst nightmare! We have had windows replaced in all our homes! Next one I think shall have to be a new-build. Can’t go through that again. And we desperately need to decorate our entire house, but that will be a nightmare too. Might be easier to move…

    (Just find a warm room and hide with the computer) Oh, and get lots of tea, coffee, milk, sugar and biscuits in.

        1. We have a problem already. Damp outside wall, bleeding through to the room being decorated. I should have known we couldn’t just be ‘lucky’. Builder coming at 5 pm. Fortunately, he is the husband of a good friend. 😦
          Best wishes, Pete.

  4. “I might have finally dropped off Pete’s perch.”

    In other words: “Gone fishing! And maybe I’ll take a long nap afterwards, and then take my sweet time dropping off the catch.”

    By the way, I prefer trout over perch, but I won’t carp about it, as long as I’m invited to the fish fry.

  5. Thanks, Pete. No worries. I wish I could be as timely as you in answering my blog messages and reading posts. Long days at work make that hard to do. The new windows and painting sound very exciting. Although Ollie probably won’t be happy.

    1. Ollie will like to have more people around. But he might be disappointed that they have no time to play with his soft toys. πŸ™‚
      No need to worry about your time, Jennie. I appreciate that you give most of it to your love of educating those kids! πŸ™‚
      Best wishes, Pete.
