Let The Sunshine In Not The Rain

April 15th, 2014

We had some bad storms last summer and our skylights got damaged, so we replaced them.

The new one in the kitchen is the kind you can open and really helps the air to flow.
I also got some blinds for the new skylights, wow what a difference, they really help to keep the sun out during the hot summer days.

A funny thing happened shortly after installing the new skylights.

We went out for the afternoon and I told my husband to close the roof blinds Manchester.

We came home and the floor was a little wet so I thought the old dog had a accident.

I opened the blinds the next morning and realized my husband had not closed the new skylight window and the rain from the afternoon had come in.

So If you get the opening window skylights make sure you close them before closing the blinds.

Vanity Reigns

March 28th, 2014

I recently gave in to my husband’s begs and pleas and went to the audiologist. I knew I was losing my hearing in one ear, and it scared me a little bit. The audiologist confirmed what I suspected and told me how hearing aids Nantwich could me. However, I only needed one for my right ear because the left ear was fine. This made me nervous because I thought I would look weird with just one instead of two like most people. The audiologist told me that the device was small, and no one would even notice it. I did not believe him.

I drove straight from the doctor’s office to my hair stylist’s salon. I asked for a new hairstyle that would cover both of my ears completely. I wasn’t taking any chances that someone would notice the device in my right ear. She complied, and I walked out looking and feeing great!

A paint job and new decor will change your look

March 11th, 2014

If everyone would change just one thing in their house, they may feel better about their house. Remodeling the kitchen or bathroom is more difficult than remodeling the bedroom or living area. Looking at all of the new house design books and the beautiful room décor will make you jealous. If you decide to remodel your home, you need to purchase your blinds Manchester. All of my friends have decided to remodel their homes and this is where they bought their window treatments. The colors of the rooms will reflect better, when the windows look great. Sand colors and greens will always look like a million in a home remodel. I plan on repainting my bedroom and purchasing a new comforter. This little amount of décor will change the whole look of a room and make you feel great when you are in it. Paint and comforters are not expensive and will be a quick remodel.

How I Lost the Award for World’s Best Maid of Honor

February 24th, 2014

Last weekend was my friend’s long-awaited wedding. She was Bridezilla; everything had to be big, it had to be perfect. As Maid of Honor, it was my job to ensure it was just that.

My gift was a customized display of wedding fireworks, the kind that explode as hearts and rings. Unfortunately, I hadn’t considered my Millie’s reaction to the explosions, an apocalyptic experience even for a Doberman like her. Millie pushed through the crowd and, as large dogs often do, miscalculated her size, hurling the bride into a table with shining candles. It seems her dress, for all it had cost, was highly flammable. The groom threw her, arms flailing, dress ablaze, into the pool.

Unsurprisingly, the reception ended early and the wedding night was spent in the hospital. Worst of all, no one saw my fireworks finale: “May the fire of your passion never cease.”

The Day I Became a Clown!

January 22nd, 2014

As a kid, I loved the circus, especially when the clown circus workshops. Unlike a lot of kids, I wasn’t afraid of clowns: I thought they were hilarious. Call me old fashioned, but I wanted to be one.

One year, my parents let me enroll in the clown workshop. The friendly lead clown, named Boffo, helped me pick out a funny outfit, applied makeup on my face, picked out a wig for me to wear, and gave me a red clown nose. I, however, picked the name: Laugho!

They gave me a quick rundown on basic clown humor styles, and soon I was clowning down! My parents laughed at my antics, and Boffo smiled in approval. I even got some of the passing kids to laugh, and start begging their parents to let them be a clown.

Although I never clowned again, I still think back fondly on that day.
