A Sort of a Normal Day ....nearly !!

View across.....Cullen beach......and a lovely sunny day....!!

The horses...having a quick brush.....with Kim & Irma today !

One of the lovely fisherman's cottages...in Cullen

A nice walk along the footpath to the beach....


Obviously some are starting to wonder, if I ever have a sort of normal day, as asked by Barbara at Beckbrow !........ well actually the short answer is No !!

At the moment my friend Irma is staying with me with her daughter Kim, having a little holiday, the day started quite normal...which was nice.

I left Irma and Kim brushing the horses, whilst I decided to cut the grass.....as its been so wet, I haven't been able to get it cut.

Then later in the afternoon we decided to go to Cullen for an ice cream......as you do ! The queue was out of the door onto the pavement, when we arrived........however we were swiftly served.....once again they had run out of strawberry flavour....I had to resort to second choice lime !!

We had a lovely walk round Cullen, through the little fisherman's cottages.....they weather was lovely and the scenery is just gorgeous....I was just enjoying having a bit of a day off....or so I thought !...little did I know what was in store..!!

We returned back home after doing a bit of shopping.....a quick trip to the 'Spotty Bag' shop for some dog chews....and it was time to drive back home ....

As it was such a lovely day, I decided to open my driver's window......now, its been playing up making a funny noise for years......but little did I expect it to drop inside the door panel and get stuck..!! I had to drive all the way home....with a stuck open window....just in time for the odd spot of rain the threaten....!! typical...so guess what I was doing after I got home, yep dismantling the full door panel.....to try and fix it !

After a little while I had a nice amount of various screws, nuts, the odd speaker, door panel, and various bits and pieces.......after about half an hour.....we managed to find a new bolt...and find the broken piece...well the bit that had dropped off, well I have never dismantled a car door before........but I quickly managed to see how it worked......we had a bit of an ordeal trying to get the glass..inside both of the guides either side of the glass....but thankfully we managed, little did Irma know that she would be doing a quick course in car door fixing.

I have oiled the bits that move.......given it a quick try and tonight, I have a nice smooth window.......and its working...better than it has for years.....

So in answer to Barbara's question...do I ever have a normal sort of day.....well.......Im still waiting.....to see...who knows...what tomorrow has in store !!

OMG! Thunderbird One needed attention...... This will never do.

Well done ace mechanic.

Cullen is lovely isn't it. The ice creams are special too.

I think we might have a long wait...but we wouldn't have it any other way:)

Not surprised it is all fixed - can't see a mere door phasing you!!

The horses look so good - all shiny. Cullen looks charming.

Yep, you amaze me too! I'd be cursing that car window instead of fixing it.

Ah, Cullen - only 6 miles from where I was born! Didn't have ice creams in those days though! Robbie
