    I'm doing DIY, job at the mo is to removing an old pantry, this involves me knocking the brickwork out and cleaning up those bricks and using those to brick up the old pantry doorway - then I'll be dot and dabbing the whole hallway then skimming / decorating.

    Thanks. It's sort of funny. I said "how are you doing" and she said "I'm fine". She struggled to say it and I struggled to understand what she was trying to say. I guess she may have a lot to be thankful for but she's got a hard journey ahead of her to OK.

    If it is any comfort, my father in law had a stroke relatively young and now it is only obvious because I know. Thoughts with you both.

    My MIL had a stroke a month ago and is really coming on well. It is amazing how the treatment has advanced in recent times.
    I am sure that she will be fine -they really seem to know what to do to help someone get back to normal as soon as possible

    Pretty much doing what I normally do at work! I have configured and setup a new PC for my mum today which took up most of the time (I don't mind she's my mum after all)!! I also have not one but two text from my LM requesting access to the administrator password *sigh* though I feel better now the head has reassured me they've got my back

    Went to trim the hedge and the battery is flat. I was sure I'd put it on charge, so I hope it's not knackered. Then I started scarifying the lawn but it's still a bit damp. So I'm going to have a cuppa and read my book for 30 minutes whilst the sun does its job.

    Sun? What is this "Sun" of which you speak?

    I left some decking last night nearly dry. I was going to treat it before the new shed goes up. The forecast changed, and i has been gopping down all morning!

    Not much sun today for us. Roughly 15 minutes worth, I think. It has, however, stayed dryish long enough for Mr gee40 and I to go for a hike round Riverhill Himalayan Gardens and have a very British bank holiday lunch under a large umbrella at their cafe!

    No rain here so far - quite muggy and warm though overcast.
    I have spent the day trying to clean my patio. It is covered in lichen and the usual Jeyes Fluid and bleach did not help. I do have a pressure washer but the nozzle is so small that it takes forever to do each slab, and a lot of water, which when you are on a water meter is not ideal All advice gratefully received

    rent a proper water blaster for a day? I'd lend you mine but lead time and shipping are prohibitive
