Well I’m more or less recovered now and have been back at work the last couple of days. One of the things that got cancelled while I was ill was a visit to my mum’s to help out with some bits around the house. One of those was to clear the gutters before winter came and it was just too unpleasant to do so. Thankfully she lives in a bungalow so all that was needed was a step ladder. Not all the gutters were as clear as this one was and it was a very mucky job. I suspect some clothing might take a couple of washes before it comes clean. However it was good to see family and we did some other bits during the afternoon and evening as well as have a proper catch up.
