Your Right!!

I am pushing myself far to hard!!! I'm still suffering with a sore throat and headache, plus having to deal with my pain! But the real problem is, there is no one else to do it! If I hadn't had the op in August this would all have been sorted!


I'm a woman, a mother and if no one else does it what do we do?
We do it ourselves!!!! Theres no one to come along and rescue us!

Monday we managed to get the doors on and I'm thrilled because they meet! Which means it has to be fairly level!!!

Even found a pane of glass which fitted in the door where one had broken!!! I have ordered a frost protector fan heater and am bidding on another one on EBAY!!! So hopefully I will have one tube heater and one fan heater in each greenhouse!!

Been to the shops, my first time out since I had the flu, had to take the blue car to the garage for its MOT tomorrow and we had to walk back from the garage, couple of miles, can you remember where I live?

We are to the left of the white houses in the middle of the picture!!!
Tuesday we are off up to Worcester, K's not too well, and wants to come home. But she has promised to help with the gravel delivery when it comes, probably next week!
So an early start tomorrow as we are down to one car, and hubby usually leaves at 7am!! Thats why I'm posting this now!
If we are back in time I shall wash all of the greenhouse and hopefully start getting the bubble wrap up, then I can move my 'precious' plants in!
I must admit compared to the 6 x6 this ones huge!!! Wonder how long that feeling will last!!
Oh and just to let you know I don't sit back with my feet up in the evening, the Christmas presents are coming along well!!!


And still not finished!!!! But wasn't it a glorious day yesterday!
Well the rubber/foam strips arrived late saturday, my post doesn't come till about 2pm!!! By the way is anyone still waiting for post from the postal strike? I am, 2 parcels, seem to have disappeared into the depths!!!!!!!

So we awoke on Sunday, rareing to go, ate a hearty breakfast and set off about 9.45am!! Now being the perfectionist I am, we had to scrape away all the old rubber, clean off all the bits before we could stick down the new!
Being such a lovely day we roped T into helping so set up the patio, table, chairs and yes parasol! It was so hot we caught the sun.
Anyway T was chief drink and lunch maker, she also entertained Tango who was not impressed about us being so busy and not being able to fuss him!

having scrapped and cleaned and stuck , I was able to start the glazing, whilst hubby scraped and cleaned the roof bars.

I can't remember what time this was but it is definately afternoon, and I have glazed the back and this side, whilst hubby is still up the ladder doing the roof

can you see where we have gone wrong???? I kid you not! A clue, what is missing from the roof? Got it yet?

Windows!!!! at this exact time I hadn't realised and by the time I had, the whole of the front had been glazed too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So what to do, we had to undo the apex and loosen all the roof struts, then grease and slide in the windows from the door end, praying to goodness that we don't crack any glass! It was flipping hard, but we did it and no breakages either!

I couldn't photograph the finished greenhouse last night as it was too dark and we had to finish, using the garden lights and large torches, of which we have a few, well we do live in the country!!! So we got back inside the house at 8pm, at which time we had a carry out!!!!! I had no energy to cook!

So here it is this morning

all thats left to do now is, hang the doors, bubble wrap and fit an automatic opener to one of the windows, I should also get some gravel delivered as I shall weed membrane and gravel down either side of the main path.

I need to do some shopping, sort out some other bits and pieces before the blue car has to go to the garage tonight, for its MOT tomorrow, so I shall probably finish all the bits and pieces in the greenhouse tomorrow when I'm carless!!!!!!!
