    • "Sticky is the way to go."

      I do love the Mods but the provision of Sticky ( rice ) is maybe beyond their powers .
      It takes courage to grow up and turn out to be who you really are

              Jan 2021(Surin) : My dinner time entertainment whilst eating, watching someone inspect for tar, and apparently there was also some on the drivers side sill, of course it was announced that it must have happened while someone (a male) was driving by road resurfacing and did nt happen when someone else (female) was driving several times along the same stretch of road to her mothers

                  It would be impossible for tar to have attached itself to her shinny freshly polished car, polished with her all new singing and dancing car wax, the polish I bought the week before was apparently not good enough I did ask what was wrong with the stuff I bought, to be told ''this is much better'', then asked ''hows that then ? tried it have ya ?'' to be told after an annoying smirk ''coz it is, I know it is'' with that head back, nose in the air out she marched to apply the supper duper wax after washing the tar off feeling amused, I made a coffee and watched the on-goings, her hat is as big as she is made a welcome break from painting.

                  • Well my time at home is at an end, I ended up with 2 weeks in quarantine, 5 weeks at home, and now I am back in unpaid quarantine in Basra. Back to work in 10 days.
                    I had a good leave, although we did not do a great deal of socialising going out as I didn't want to take too many chances and I hated wearing the masks when out
                    There has been some changes at home, I pottered about, we got the aircon in, got our bedroom furniture and we are having some outside bedrooms done before I get my bike room built.

                    I cleared all the overgrown vegitation from around the septic tank area, laid some weed resistant covering and then Ohm's brother helped me put the stone down

                      • Moving on from Post 379, the old house is finished now, the wall is up and the gate is in place. Now its just sat there waiting for Ohm to decide on what she wants to do with it.

                        • Whilst I was home we had the aircon done in the house. We used a local shop rather than somewhere like Homepro or Global etc.
                          Up to now it seems like they have done a good job. The installation team work efficiently.













                          I had a 24,000 BTU put in the Living Room, 18,000 BTU in our bedroom and 12,000 BTU in the other 2 bedrooms. Inverter Units all round and they work nicely.

                          • We have taken down the old kitchen area and the old room where Ohm’s dad used to sleep above and we are doing 2 outside bedrooms. A large one for her mum and dad to share and a smaller one which we will use as a spare.

                            Then we put up the new roof and we made it a continuation of the carpark (aircraft hanger) and new outside kitchen. This way the crew we are using could work in a bit of shade.
