This book is about two families in the Lake District. When the lake at Westmoreland freezes over, people flock to the lake to skate, both visitors and family members. Returning brings back memories but also some secrets. Lies have a way of coming out.
This book is one I would recommend highly. It is the second book I have read by this author and will not be the last.
Murphy has returned to our home with vigor. Jos noticed a drip on our new radiator. The seal between the sections had broken and it was leaking. The company who makes these radiators gives great customer service and came to fix it. They replaced the ring but it was still leaking so they literally turned around and came back as they were on their way back to home. After trying three rings, the man contacted the company and a new radiator was decided.
Then Murphy decided he was not done having his fun yet. After hearing our wood floors snapping for about a week and a half, it buckled up and split open in places. We could no longer close the studio door without getting stuck inside. Jos called the man who put in the floor who came and did this...
I am totally not happy with this as he had to order the hard wax and is going to put it back in no longer flush to the wall but with a flat plinth to cover the gap. This floor has been nothing but problems and I wish we had forced him to renovate our old floor under it as agreed. We feel like we were taken advantage of not knowing enough about the situation with great expense to us too. I will be glad when he finally comes back this week to put the new sections back in. Needless to say, the extra floorboards will be gone soon at this rate. The floor is the bedroom looks like it is going to start doing the same thing. You assume that someone who is certified knows what they are doing but we have our doubts anymore. If it gets any worse, we will have to file a complaint with the CBW insurance guarantee.
Why can't Murphy move off to someone else? But then I would wish him on no one!
In the meantime, I have been bitten by the spring cleaning and decluttering bug. I am going through cupboards pulling things that (although I love them) no longer work with our furniture or do not fit and am selling items. It is nice to see a little money come back from these items and space in our home. Do you enjoy doing some spring cleaning at this time of year?
We have spent the weekend planting up our garden and enjoying the nice weekend weather. Anyone gardening? No matter how your weekend looked, I hope you have a wonderful Sunday!
