Decisions, decisions


What colour wetwall should we have? Where should the radiators go? The lights? The switches? How high do we want the shower head? Where and what's going in the kitchen? The list is never ending! Extension is exciting and progressing but also so consuming.

Then there's the mouse issue - should we trap them, poison them or get a cat or two? I'm in favour of option three so watch this space (had a dream we had a barn cat called Bruce!!)

And now the ducks have moulted and regrown feathers do we clip them or trust them to know what side their bread's buttered and stick around? The books say they fly around not away and they do look amazing zooming around at head height...

Answers on a postcard please....

I'm off to prepare the house and food for friends round for dinner - when the kids are away, mum and dad will play!

I vote for the cat and the flying ducks.

How about attaching the ducks to a thin but really, really long bungee cord? You think they're beautiful flying around at head-level? Just wait till you see them snap backwards like a sling shot.

LOL! Jim, Malcolm has enough trouble landing already, it's a kind of graceful starting nose dive!!

Oh and cat update - The Giggling Farmer (a neighbour) was round to us for tea last night and can get us a cat or two! Maybe Bruce was a premonition....
