Glazing repairs

Hello, just thought I would let you know, I had a really good experience with a local glass repair firm, now you might think this isn’t anything to blog about but when, you are standing in your conservatory, with the wind blowing and the rain pouring down, your head is in a different place. I had branches of a big tree, crashing down on my conservatory window and eventually 2 panes of glass shattered.

I was at my wits end with water pouring in and the storm still raging outside, I managed to get hold of a 24 hour glazing firm, based locally. He cam round promptly and assessed the situation. The storm started to subside and my brother showed up as well as I had give him a call to tell him about the overhanging tree. He got a saw and a ladder from a shed and cut down the over hanging branches.

The glazier was amazing, he went away and came back with 2 double glazed sealed units and fitted them on the same day. Crisis over, result was amazing.

Life and death and living

Wow, thought I would start with an interesting title to my first blog post.

Living your life is so important, and I mean living not just existing, so doing things, making friends, making mistakes, making the right decisions, making wrong decisions. Always trying to do the right thing, is important, as you will regret it otherwise, trust me on that one.

Also, doing stuff is important, for yourself, for other people, just make sure you are always striving to get things done. Even simple projects at home. They sometimes make all the difference and if you can affect your home life in a positive way, then all the better. Well, it is what I have learnt, in my 5 score years and 5…

Home projects, like repainting some walls, upgrading and glazing some windows, or simple jobs, painting furniture, changing furniture, upgrading bathrooms, you know what I mean…
