Weekend Overtime

Hi folks - Bernard here

You'll be amazed at how much Eric and I (with some help from Chris) have managed to get done on our house this weekend.

First we added the window hinges. We cut a toothpaste tube into strips, covered them with masking tape and painted them black. Chris didn't trust us with the superglue, so she stuck them to the frames,

stuck the frames in place, and taped them to dry.

This is me, hard at work, adding the catches. We put gold paper clips into the trunk, superglued a length of gold wire to the opening frame, and finished off with leaf peel-offs 'rescued' from Chris's stash.

Me, with the supplies.

Once the windows were finished, we starting landscaping the outside, using plastic leaves and flowers inherited from Chris's Aunt Nell. We went on to rebuild the front entrance, ready for the door to be fitted.

That's about it for now, so I'm off for a soak in the bath to ease my joints, while Eric wants to finish off in the garden, making the most of the light evening, and Chris puts Grandma to bed.

Catch up with you soon, lots of love and have a great week, Bernard xx


  1. Hi Bernard, WOW! What a lovely home you are making for you and Eric. Glad Chris is helping, as it would have been a big job for you and Eric to do alone.

    Hope you have a lovely week ahead. Sue

    1. Thanks, Sue, we need all the encouragement we can get, being such little chaps. Happy Monday, Bernard xx
