Even more windows

Back from my mum's and pleased to say that her window experience went a lot better than mine. Some before and after pictures....

AfterFinished job!!!

Since the photo, I've painted the front door; tidied up/weeded the front and back gardens for winter; chopped down some unsightly branches on a lime tree (which filled the entire back half of my hatchback car including the back seat on the way to the rubbish tip); washed every window in the house; washed every net curtain in the house and some of the over-curtains; hung them back up again; taken my mother to three appointments; done a big shop for her; walked the dog every day; and taken my mum out in the car for little treats. All in the space of ten days. Now I'm back home to resume work on my own house!!!!

Your Mum must be delighted - with her windows - and also having such a whizz of a daughter. I feel exhausted just reading this - it's just as well that half-term is here hoooooray! Hope you get the chance to re-charge your batteries now that you are home.

Well done, you deserve a nice cuppa tea and 40 winks!

You did a great job helping your Mom out like that. It sounds like it was a lot of work.But it must have been a labor of love. Lucky Mom. No, have a good rest.

I can't view all the pics. But no matter. So pleased the installation went smoothly.

When do you get a holiday?

Hi Addy,

Glad all went well. Put your feet up a little before you make starts again on your own home.

All the best

I've been reading back - what a job you've had!

When I had all the windows and doors replaced in the barn - whew! What an experience! I don't want to do it again but the only one I didn't do - the patio door - has rotted away underneath. Drats! I hope I have better luck than you - but I doubt it.
