    Everywhere. San Francisco, New York, our alma mater in Missouri... :eek: Yeah, it was for work. Thankfully, with academics, it’s only once or twice a year, but then everything is happening at about the same time.

    That's awfully pretty. Too bad about the flooding. Hope you don't have to go out through it.

    Good afternoon all. I am exhausted and we still have adouble bed to build :D

    JoesDad reported this morning that Mrs Bluet-it wasn't in the nestbox while he had breakfast and there was no egg... there has to be one soon though, surely? I shall, of course be demanding an update when he gets home from work in an hour or so :D

    Daughter's flat is coming together. Furniture has been installed and flat packs built. Things are gradually finding homes. It's a lovely spacious place and a reasonably easy walk to anywhere you need to get... unfortunately that meant a lot of walking today as I am without a car and there turned out to be a number of things that needed to be got!

    Your birdies have to be close, just sitting in for a last fit, seeing how well it warms up. Good luck.

    Yall know how my husband was redoing one wall and putting in some new plugs... Well we have discovered that our house is an electrical fire waiting to happen. I don't know how this house passed inspection!
    So yeah my husband has to rewire most of the house, and install the proper size breakers

    Inconspicuously swapped bags with husband at the airport.
    He brought me a T-shirt from Alma Mater, and I’ve just discovered that I now love US sizes. It’s the only way of looking at clothes that still puts me in the “Small” category. :oops: :D

    You're so lucky he can do it himself. The house I lived in before this one was built in the '70s by a regular guy in his spare time (I think it's called a spec house) and after I lived there a while and learned to live with the house's little electrical idiosyncrasies (turn off all lights and appliances prior to plugging in the vacuum, etc), I did a little research, and found that he had wired the house with aluminum wire. I was always worried after that that the house was going to burn down around me.

    I feel your pain. A new breaker box is not cheap.

    Some of the electrical boxes show evidence of getting HOT.
    This has turned into a very big and expensive project that HAS to be done.
    Sorry Clunker, your new enclosure has to wait a little longer...

    On a happy note, all the improvements that are being done will really help increase the property's resale value for when we are able to move

    Lol. Amazing that something that looks so delicate can survive all of that.
