Since the fencing (and gate) towards the front of the house didn't need posts in order to be repaired, just new wooden strapping that went between the posts still standing (which Hubby already had), Hubby set about mending and re-building that part of the fence. As you can imagine this was a whole lot of work :/ (thank you sweetheart, love you xx) and it took Hubby most of the afternoon to complete. As you can see though he did a fabulous job, even replacing the gate which had been destroyed by the storm...
Anyway, with one large section of the fencing (and gate) repaired, Hubby needed the large fence posts to start work on the other fence section. With no sign of a delivery yet, around tea time (around five pm) I made a start on dinner. Southern fried chicken and roast potatoes for Hubby and I and plain chicken fillets for Jade. After dinner, still no post delivery :/
Long story short honeys, Hubby called B&Q to ask where our delivery was and was told the driver had been delayed. Around an hour or so later Hubby got a call on his mobile (cell) phone from the delivery driver. He had in fact been held up and had reached the limit of his allowed driving time for the day. Since my dear Brother in Law is a delivery driver we understood this and anyway it was by then too dark to do any more work in the garden anyway.
The driver promised he'd deliver as soon as he was able to today and good as his word he was here at a little after six thirty this morning :) This was fine though because Jade had already been for her walkies with Daddy and was sitting on the sofa with me watching the early news while Hubby was in the shower. The driver was really sweet and very apologetic and I told him we understood it wasn't his fault.
Hubby has a great deal of work ahead of him again this weekend, bless him, and I'm so grateful to have a Hubby who never complains (seriously, never) and I've yet to find anything he can't do. Wallpapering (I used to be a wizz at that myself before the arthritis took over) painting, plumbing, tiling (he tiled our bathroom and kitchen himself) there just isn't anything he can't do! I am a very lucky wee Rosie and when I count my blessings, as I often do, Hubby is always first on my list :)
I hope you're staying warm honeys, and looking forward to a fun weekend. Till next time dear ones, sending lots of stay warm, smiley huggles xx
