Early in the week I learned I was having some company from away for a few days this weekend. Just a quick 2 day visit but it was nice as I haven't seen these friends for several years. Not only was it nice to catch up, but my friend's boyfriend is a bit of a jack of all trades. So that meant a lot of little jobs got done.
First they arrived with 2 little ikea side tables as a house warming gift. He put these together much quicker than I would have and surprisingly he had no spare parts left over. Lol
This one will sit by my hooking chair
And this one has yet to find a permanent home but I suspect it may eventually reside in the upstairs hallway
Then he removed a door at the foot of the stairs that was bugging me. And the light switches in the kitchen made no sense. They didn't connect to the light fixtures you would expect. It was odd. Well, he had that all fixed in 10 minutes.
Then he went to put the now removed door into the garage and noticed that the side "man door" didn't work. It had just been closed off and padlocked. He disappeared to the hardware store and after a couple of hours I can now access the garage if the power is out.
You would think that would be enough right? Well, yesterday morning I mentioned how dark the back door is when I forget to turn on the outside light when I leave. I never think of it when I leave and it's daylight. So off he went again and returned with a motion sensor light for the edge of my garage.
The only problem was I didn't have a ladder. Where there's a will, there's a way. (Due to the obvious safety issues here I've blurred his face to protect the innocent. Lol)
If they had stayed a whole week I would have a completely renovated house!!
It's back to work for me tomorrow after almost 3 weeks off. I'm soooo not ready
