Two weeks time and I retire. Time to get on and do the gardening- Maintain the house and ride when energy and weather permit whenever I like. I will be taking a drop in money coming in but with a bit of careful Budgeting I will be OK.
BUT----A few things are getting in the way that will eat into my spare time. A Hosepipe ban will be coming in by the end of the month so that means I have to Set the pool up today. This would not normally be done for about another month so that is this weekend gone. Next weekend and that camper van is going on it's first trip so lots of work to do in the week.
And Now the jealousy bit. We have a few "Green" initiatives going on in the UK- instigated by the government to save the environment a bit. A big campaign is going on to get Solar Panels to generate electricity and the other is cavity wall insulation on the Brick houses we have in the UK. Gone into it and I can get them supplied and fitted "FREE" Should save a bit on heating cost's and Provide a modicum of Free Electricity.
Problem is- The Cavity insulation is being done in early April and that includes loft insulation. I have to clear the loft. There is 25 years accumulation of "Things"- old radios- stereos- furniture- and general rubbish that has to be cleared. In fact there is more than 25 years as when we moved here 25 years ago- we had boxes from our "OLD" house that went straight into the loft and we haven't touched since.
So it looks like my "Get Fit" programme is going to on hold till I can fill up the local Dump with 25 years accumulation of "Stuff" that may come in handy someday. Any one want a 8 Track player as I know there are 3 up there.
