The scaffolding is still up, but they haven't even started work on the roof yet. Despite the fact it's now been about two weeks. There were some council guys nearby earlier, so Kelly asked them about it. Apparently there's aspestos (sp?) in the roof, and they need someone to deal with that first. Like I said though, it's been two weeks now (OK, tomorrow is two weeks) and it's getting annoying. I mean, I can't even go to my own front gate without someone, because it's so easy for my cane to miss something like a scaffolding pole. I got a photo of the scaffolding at the front of the building.
I don't know if you can tell from the photo, but it goes around to the back of the building.
I wish the people they say they're waiting for would hurry up so they can get on with the work, and get on with pulling down the scaffolding so Kero and I can go for our walks without me having to have Kelly take me. I mean, I have no issues with Kelly coming with me. My issue is with the fact I want him to come with me because he wants to, not because he has to. Besides, when it rains he wont come, and just takes me to the gate and goes back in, then I have to wait at the gate for him to come back and get me. It's really, really annoying, especially with the amount of time it's been up now.
About a month ago, the door handle of our oven fell off, but we weren't all that bothered, because it can still be opened and closed without the handle (you just have to be more careful). Then the knob for the oven broke a couple of weeks back, but Dad fixed it using a piece from my Mecchano, so we were able to use the oven again. Until yesterday when the door itself broke. So, now we can only use the rings. Only, I wanted a cake. So, I made some microwave cake today. Here's a photo of the cakes:
They aren't bad. Not fantastic, but they're OK. Better than no cakes, but oven baked cakes are definately better. If you either can't use your oven for some reason, have no cooker, or want a cake and only havve about five minutes to spare though, then they're ideal.
I'm sure there were some other things I was going to blog about, but I don't remember what they were now. Ah well. I guess I'll just let this do for today, and go watch Charmed.
