Oh, Really ?

Posted by Mummy Dearest on Nov-17-2006

Yesterday at dinner- rather out of the blue- The Father said that there was a good chance that Mr.Jo could start up here next week.

“Oh, really?” I said, as I was thinking : two weeks.

On Sunday I get my first lessons on how to use, uh, plugs and screws and I guess drills of various sorts.

Look ! A new area of knowledge which I have no vocabulary for !

  1. Edwinek Said,

    How about handymanology? One of these days, Sinterklaas will stuff a tool belt in your shoe, I’m sure of it.

    And yes, I’m back. Your RSS feed stopped warning me a long time ago, and then when I had a look at the site, there was nothing but a picture. Today I had another try (after a far too lengthy wait) and there you were! Judging from the archives you’ve never been away either. I guess I have some catching up to do…

    Edwin, my latest handyman effort found me sitting on the grass, weeping. I was going to put a chicken wire enclosure around the camellia bushes, to fill with all of this f**king hooi I have,. I had my hammer, my iron nails, my especially- made- to cut- chicken- wire nippers , but I could not- for love or money- even unroll the package of chicken wire.

    Send a *sterkte* my way, for tomorrow I am going to try and take apart the extra bed in Meg’s room.

    sue

    Yay, for the way of the handyman is a winding one, fraught with potholes, chicken wire and sawdust. Sterkte!
