exciting house maintenance and gardening post

I posted a job to do my soffit and guttering on RatedPeople.com on Friday afternoon and by Saturday lunchtime people were climbing up it with ladders! They identified further problems with my chimney and tiles, which they are fixing on Monday. This website (where you describe the job you want doing and then they phone you), is going to be dangerous for me, I can tell, because I hate phoning people, but don't mind being phoned.


I am told I did know about the hole in the wall. I don't remember it, though. Complete blank. I wonder if I should just go ahead and convert that into a door sooner rather than later?


In other news, me and [personal profile] khalinche have been doing work on my garden. There is a lot of stuff to do, but now after the weekend it seems possible. Also: stuff got taken to the tip and I got hold of a composter.


Is this middle-age? I think it is, isn't it. It's not bad, really. I need to get better slippers, though.
