Good morning Jules.
They came and mended the loo handle or at least they thought they did. The next day it was playing up so I complained and we finally got another person come to look at it. He told us the other guy hadnt assembled it right and now it is working better than ever. This sort of thing annoys me for I have always been told, a job worth doing is worth doing well. The old company my son worked for always wanted him to do a bodged job but to his credit he always refusedand wants to sleep well at night. even though they had a go at him about it. He always told them he has a concience . He is doing very well at his new job and had now broken their sales record for seven months in a row. So proud of him. If a customer has a problem in fitting a door or window, he will visit them on site and show them how to get it right .
We had a good meeting about our May weekend craft fair. It was nice to meet the young lady who is helping organise it. I know we could have done some of it over the phone but much prefer to meet face to face. They now want to talk to me about the formation of our club as they want to use this to help advertise the event. More publicity for our club. I have five small trays that I made years ago and which hold about 250 different world timbers all about 3/8" sq by 5 " long and I will take this with uswhen we do our show, I have all the timbers listed numerically on a couple of A4 sheets of paper which I have laminated and will also take the pocket mictroscope my sone gave me so people can look at the end grain of some timber samples I will prepare. There are only 5% of world timbers that are what they call ring porus so it just shows how you can identify timvers by this method
At least you should be able to do your usual Sunday walk as its fine here at least. Dont like this talk of snow here tonight though. Will probably hibernate if we do get some ha ha. It must be hard to see your mum like she is and not be able to talk to her much. I know when my mother was getting to the end, She wasnt able to talk. I just used to hold her hand and I wondered at times if she was aware I was there but sometimes I would say something to her and she would sqeeze my hand as if she understood. So I do think she was aware somehow.
Anyway take care and am sending kind thoughts to you and your family, Brian.
