09/03/2018 A new vanity unit for the en suite.

Maximum temperature today 18C, minimum 8C.   1 mm of rain measured this morning and we have had dry blue skies today; 21 km/h Southerly winds with up to 43 km/h gusts.  (320 mm of rain so far from the 1st of January).
The old unit...

removal in progress...

If all else fails read the instructions...

 Man at work...

The new unit - much better and more cupboard space 😊

Eurasian blue tit (Cyanistes caeruleus).
  
Great tit (Parus major).

Good night sun.
Sorry a bit blurred it was dark and the camera was hand held.

  2. Read the instructions? How subversive is that? It's almost as bad as expecting a guy to ask for directions!

    1. The problem was even the directions did not work, two parts did not fit together correctly and we had to go back to the shop to sort out the problem!! Have a good weekend Diane

  5. That new vanity looks very nice, Diane. I read that you had to go back to the shop; how aggravating is that! I hope you and Nigel are enjoying the weekend. :)

    1. Thanks Sally we are pleased with the new look. We collected everything in the morning, ordered a month ago, only to find there was no part from the drain and overflow to the waste pipe!!! It is a good half hours drive to get back to the shop!! Take care and have a good Sunday Diane

  6. I like your new vanity. It is streamlined and has much more storage. The blue tit photos are beautiful as is the sunset. I see your maximum temperatures are higher than where I live though by Monday we should also be there. After that it should be getting warmer each week. Though I am not an extreme heat lover, I do like sunshine and moderate days. I hope you are much better Diane and over your cough.

    1. Thanks Penny, the storage is good. It is much warmer, and we have a Southerly wind rather than the cold North wind blowing at preset which is a huge improvement. I much prefer too hot than too cold, I struggle to get warm at the best of times. The cough continues!!! Have a good day Diane

  8. Nice new sink and cabinet. It looks like a chocolate chip cookie in the tit's water.

    1. Ha ha it is just a rock. When they splash around a lot and there is hardly any water left, if the rock was not there the dish would blow away, it is only plastic. Take care Diane

  9. He's clever to work out how to put it all together. We've given up trying these days and get someone else to do it. It looks a much better unit. Love the blue tit.

    1. Nigel did not put it together, the guy who is doing it for us is a great odd job man and can put his hand to most things. He has done several jobs for us, including the whole upstairs extension in the barn where we now have our offices and another spare room. Hope all is well t'other Diane

  10. Much better size Diane.. it's good to have a handy man available for these jobs. Personally I think instructions are almost impossible to follow 😀 love the bird shots and what a fiery sunset!

    1. We are lucky to get our handy man. He is always busy but he has his favourites who he works for and we are lucky to be on that list :-) When we bought our greenhouse Nigel and I struggled for days to get it together!!! Keep well Diane

  11. Isn't it always nice to have new and even nicer to have more storage! I LOVE storage and it seems like there is never enough! Always loving your bird shots.

    1. Kim that is not Nigel but our odd job man who does quite a bit for us, he is good at carpentry, building and small electrical jobs. Very useful man to know. As I type this the rain has returned!!!! Cheers Diane
