Throwback Thursday

While it is Friday here now, it is still Thursday in many parts of the world. A post from this day ten years ago. Little Jo was three and stayed here often and we always were so careful about her welfare. We are now back to nylon rollers as the metal rollers were cutting into the balcony door track. We have probably spent over $1000 on the balcony door in twenty years and still it is problematic.

  2. The sliding door in our kitchen poses similar problems. And like you I have lost confidence (justifiably?) in our ability to deal with these problems.

  5. It's so weird being ahead of half the world Andrew, I often have to edit my blog on re-reading and change a yesterday to today 😊 We replaced our sliding door to the back garden to French doors years ago, they come with problems of their own.. am determined to re paint them in this weird time of isolation.
    P.s. I meant to say how much R looks like his late Mum, she looked like such a lovely lady 💜

    1. Grace, suffer ye children. It is not our fault that we are ahead of the world. Interesting about the doors. She was nice and yes, they did look alike.

  6. Certainly a big problem is your door. Sure is important to have it so no little ones can open it etc.

    1. Margaret, R is always terrified about them being on the balcony and that they follow the rule, always two feet on the balcony. I watch them carefully.

  10. I remember sliding doors in a house we eventually had to sell, the tracks were always filled with dust etc, I spent a good amount of time each week vacuuming the damn things. I'll never have them again.
