Hello. It was a bit of a faff this morning, waiting for the call to go on the Burnsy Show on BBC Radio Humberside. Apologies if anyone was waiting for it to happen. It was scheduled for 9.40am, other things took priority and I was pushed back once, then again. Finally I got the call at around 11.15am. If you want to listen this is the link, readers outside the UK may not be able to access it. Slide the bar across to 2 hours 18 minutes. I sent him a present yesterday and it arrived this morning. He opened it on air, remember the football shopping bags. Burnsy's first love is football, goes to the matches as a commentator, the bag is an idea present for him.
The fridge arrived, a nice young man brought it in, unpacked it, but unfortunately it didn't fit into the space vacated by the old one. I thought there might be a problem, but not to worry, there was a plan 'B'. An inch could be taken off the top of the cupboard next to it, and as I don't have the right saw for this, I called on my friend Bob. He came to have a look, and came up with a better solution. Shuffle the cooker an inch to the left, unscrew the cupboard from the wall and remove the top. Shuffle it to the left close up to the cooker, and that gave us a big enough gap to slide the fridge in, no sawing was needed. He was running out of time and will come back to screw the cupboard to the wall. Looks pretty good, bags of room in this one, I'm chuffed. Mayze cat won't be very pleased though, it is too tall for her to jump up onto it.
Bob was on his way to the tip with some scrap wood he no longer wanted. He let me have a rummage through it. There was a superduper pallet, some bigger pieces, and some dinky little offcuts. I couldn't resist rescuing these. They will come in useful for something. I am chuffed.
