We've had some lovely weather the last week and have achieved quite a lot in the garden. Although we did hit a bit of a glitch on Monday. The P.A. cleared all the pots and furniture off the pond patio with the intention of pressure washing it, as over the winter months it tends to get a bit green with moss, algae and general dirt.
So after sweeping up all the debris and setting up the pressure washer, the P.A. turned it on and nothing happened - OH DEAR! After several Youtube videos on how to fix it, changing the fuse, trying every socket in the summer house, trying different extension cables, then checking the manufacturer's website for more info and applying all the tips and fixes offered, it still didn't work.
This is quite annoying as it was only purchased last spring and has only been used twice to do the patios last year. Anyhoo dad is now trying to find out exactly when we purchased it so hopefully it will be within the year's guarantee and we can swap it for a new one. We'll keep mew posted, but needless to say the patios are still dirty!
First up in the news this week
Melvyn's Very Whiskery Wednesday
Melvyn was keen to share a close up of his whiskers today.
He said the lighting was just purrfect for enhancing the epic magnificence of them, and who are we to argue with that!
Next up in the news
Smooch Finds A Hotspot
We put the clocks forward on Sunday and it was such a glorious day that dad got the sun chairs out in the courtyard later on in the afternoon.
And while the P.A. and dad got some warms Smooch found the purrfect hotspot on the back of the raised bed.
Finally this week
Pandora's New Day Bed
We don't know if mew remember this bed we made in 2018, I know we did a post about it and I think it was originally made for Amber, but we can't find it.
Anyhoo, we made this cute bed and it was lovely for a while, but then it started to look a little chatty, so last summer the P.A. stripped it back to the frame ready to recover.
And finally, she's made time to begin the remodel.
Pandora is just checking it out for comfort.
What do mew think so far?
The P.A. has just got to finish putting in the upholstery tacks to keep the pom-pom trim in place and then she's making a matching snuggle mat for the top so it can be washed. But the really great thing is the fabric she used was a lightweight, quilted double bedspread from a charity shop and it cost £2.95, plus it was brand new, what an absolute bargain.
She's also made some small chair cushions for two farmhouse kitchen chairs she's just repainted in a light pink, and there's quite a bit left to make other stuff too. We love a bargain a BBHQ! MOL
That's us done for today, Amber will be back on Friday with another fab book just for mew, and if mew missed Monday's post click here to catch up on our latest Colouring with Cats post.
