- So this is the front of our house. We applied for pre planning permission to put up a fence for 2 reasons, privacy as we are on a main road and we live near a supermarket so people walk past and have a good nosey through the windows (which are huge) and secondly because we have an unbelievable amount of litter blown and thrown (glass bottles!) in to our garden. The council and conservation officer have refused our request for a timber fence around the front and side of the property because it will affect the look of the area. Any advice?! I've asked for advice of what we can do but I have a feeling that they don't really care to argue with us! #planningrefused #planningadvice

- #security. So someone decided to break in to our garden last night and have a little nosey. Luckily nothing of any value is left outside and they left empty handed. Makes you think about security though. We're installing a second bolt and padlock as well as a solar powered light. Hopefully it'll scare anyone off in future. I must admit I'm very lax when it comes to security. I don't lock my car, close upstairs (and sometimes downstairs) windows when I nip to the shop and quite often leave valuables in show. Maybe I'll be more vigilant from now. #copsandrobbers #tightenedsecurity #cheeky

- *BORING POST* so I managed to replace the soil pipe (gross I know) myself the other day πŸ‘πŸ» mini win as we'd had someone quote us over Β£100 to replace 2 sets of taps and this! We were having trouble locating the water stop tap but now that we've found it I'm going all those little jobs myself, saving Mr Manor and I a few pounds for our holiday next week. 9 days in Tenerife cannot come quick enough. ☺ happy Thursday everyone. #diy #miniwin #whoneedsaman #whoneedsaplumber

- Woodworm treatment done! We've spent the last two days in a hotel. Usually I'd hate being away from home but it felt like such a luxury to have carpets and no dust/dangers. There was also a gym/pool/steam room which we took full advantage of. Now back to reality. How can we repair our beautiful stairs. The woodworm have been tucked away in our stairs for years and have caused some serious damage (bottom step isn't fully attached anymore) as well as some cosmetic damage. We also have missing spindles, endless nails/staples and gripper to remove and floorboards to replace on the landing πŸ˜” #staircase #repair #replace #woodworm #rentokil
