Early rising.


An early start to the day. The builders and plumbers are back.


Bob and Sophie are delighted when workmen visit. Bob can pester the morose lads into throwing Furry Fox. Sophie can charm the morose lads into sharing their mid-morning snacks. 'Charm' in the Sophie sense means sitting and staring ( unblinking ) at them until they get the message.


Aude, the bipolar decaratrice, is due to show up to do some painting. She calls to say she won't be here until Monday. This is fine by us. One of the morose lads drops a new basin on the floor. The floor survives but the shock has opened up a crack in the plaster on the wall. Aude can fill it in and paint over it.

  1. I'm presuming the basin is RIP? Nothing is ever plain sailing, is it! Particularly when renovating!

    1. Amazingly the basin, which is black basalt and very heavy, survived. This is a shame as the design, which looked good in the brochure, is wildly impractical.

    2. Can it be reused as a bird bath ?

  2. That video is amazing.
    Will your bathroom updates feature a show with glass doors? I am thinking of a game of indoor touch rugby going badly wrong...
    Cheers, Gail.

  3. Oh dear, poor dog, I do hope he fared better than the door. It doesn't say much for the reliability of Chinese workmanship !
    Who could possibly resist a PON pester or a PON stare?

  4. Did Aude counsel you on the basalt basin? Or does she just do walls?

  5. Scrolling down the comments on that video, I see that somebody clever has managed to include President Trump showing off an "Executive Order."

    1. Yes. It's a real 'day brightener '.

  6. The video of the dog chase is straight out of the cartoons. I hope the "door crasher" was OK.

  7. Bob's expression in the second picture made me laugh out loud.

  8. Your entertaining life sounds so much like a TV program on BBC numerous years ago. Never a dull moment! And yes, that dog must have had a headache! The PONs would never do that!! :)

  9. Glad there were no dogs around when the basin took it's fall. I'm sure your design for the bath will be very smart.

  10. I can not imagine how loud the sound was from the dropped basin!
