New door

We had a new steel front garage door fitted. They did a grand job and were on their way within an hour and a quarter, after eagerly consuming a hot drink and explaining how it worked to DB who was out there, checking they were okay in the pouring rain!

Later, he showed me how to open it, from both the outside and inside - and we got locked in. One of the locks didn't quite slide out properly and he had to walk all around the house to unlock it from the front, which was a bit of a problem. He eventually managed to sort it out.

This week, we had the old and slightly rotten (and much mended) side door changed for a UPVC version:
So much better. Both had been saved up for and we shall pay our debts this coming week when the bill arrives.

On a slightly different note, who would have thought we would still be eating soup n the last week of July? Some days recently have been just 14C!

    1. Slightly better today but I don't like it if it gets too high anyway but 14c or less is too cool for summer!

  3. Not cool here on the prairies of Canada. We are very warm (even for this time of year). We usually only have a few days in a row of almost 40 C temperatures, this year it is rare to hit below 33 C and we take advantage of it.

    God bless.
