I'm not saying that ALL branches of SS don't accept recycling donations, MillieH, only that the one in Crewe doesn't .  It might be worth a phone check first  wink

Boots aren't accepting them either down here. It's a covid thing.

I've always found the Salvation Army will take items that some other charities wouldn't.

Covid seems the excuse for everything, surely a pair of old glasses aren’t going to be infected with much and are easily cleaned.  I have just been reading about GP’s getting extra funding to ‘see’ patients, well that would be great here thank you!  We have to complete a tortuous on-line form, most of which is irrelevant to the question we want asking, then, if we are really lucky, we can have a telephone appointment in 3 WEEKS time!!!!  😡. What are GP’s all so busy with??

I looked on line and the only charity accepting specs was Marie Curie (if that info was up to date?)

Another lovely day here, nice if anyone's away round this way. 

Sounds good in your latest area Nellie, there is another CL we keep meaning to visit near Saltash. I have relatives near Millbrook and like that part of Cornwall. Antony House had always been a bit limited, we like walking around Mount Edgecombe. 

Eau de slurry still fills the air, suggested to OH it might rejuvenate us?! wink

Waitrose order today, just one item missing but prices have gone up.

quite agree Heddlo - all it takes is a bowl of water and Dettol or similar, then transfer to a sealable bag.  

 

Brue,  if you can detect the finest traces of  Eau de Poo, then you obviously are not suffering from C19  !!

Walking off the excesses of yesterday's lunch. So we took ourselves off to Blakeney to walk around the marsh to Cley. I dropped the ladies off at Blakeney church then drove to park in Cley and walked back to Blakeney to eventually catch them up half way around the marsh path.

The weather certainly blew any cobwebs we had away. Felt quite autumnal. Crab sandwiches for lunch.

MiL and OH now popped off to Holt as there are a couple of shops they haven't as yet visited! Unbelievable but true.😂

We started clearing the bathroom on Tuesday, all cupboards emptied, quite a few ancient  bottles of various stuff disposed of, empty "fancy" containers recycled etc etc, so will not be nearly as much to put back eventually.

Yesterday, OH had to go to the dentist, then we had to go out to feed DD's budgies, so took the opportunity to tank up for the trip to the east coast tomorrow, and purchase the tile cement, grout, and tile trim required for our project.

Today, having numbered and labelled all the units and their doors, I have started trying to remove them.  Not easy to get the wall ones down as they are grouted to the tiles along the bottom edges.  Strong stuff that grout, it is epoxy grout, even with all the fixings removed the  units are still hanging on the wall!   I am having to hack off  the tiles below them to get them down, just as well there are only 4 of them.

No idea how I will get the 4 floor units free either, as first I need to remove the countertop, and that is also grouted in to the tiles.   I may try using my Dremel to try to cut the grout.  Does not matter if the countertop gets damaged as it is being replaced, but the end unit is grouted in down one side, so do not want to damage that.

We obviously were never planning on having to remove anything!

Tomorrow we retrieve the holidaymakers from North Berwick, so that will be an early start.  Leaving time is 12 noon, so we need to allow a couple of hours to pack up everything, and 1 1/2-2 hours to get there.  So an 8am departure from here.  Just hope it is dry tomorrow, no fun packing up in the rain.
