    I think he & his partner were @siju. He's a plasterer by trade and he sent me a video with before & after changes, it doesn't look like the same house, a toilet now downstairs, a bedroom split into two. As long as they are happy together & I'm sure they will pass the house onto the next generation :)

    A very happy Friday, folks, and I hope you'll have a wonderful weekend!
    For any members who are feeling poorly or low in spirits, do get well soon. Love from us all. 3

    It's a lot of you've not been saving a lot before Makingaboro2, so be very proud of yourself!!
    Aha another 46p too! Slow and steady for sure. 🥰

    Didn't James do well for his nephew Siju!
    Wasn't Wednesday a lovely day, 2 that makes 2 in a week, so 2 in a week. Tomorrow is showers but better in the afternoon.🤞 Sunday hmm☔⛈️ speechless 😶 😮‍💨
    Brilliant potting! 😊

    What an excellent trade for your nephew to be in, James! It'll be good for you to see the before and after videos. Such a shame your mum didn't have a toilet downstairs, it would have been so much easier for your mum to have had 1 downstairs with her copd unless she had a stairlift of course. Still, at least she's free from it now, bless her.
    Their certainly cracking on with it with the bedroom split too. I'm sure they'll be very happy together in it now. 

    Another good amount in your pot LMD!!
             
    Have a really super weekend folks!

    I’ve been dropping a few more coins into my pot.
    It’s good to see your mum’s house being put to loving good use @rancid-a but of course a little bittersweet too.
    The place will never look the way it did but you will always have your memories.

    Another £7 from a FB marketplace sale and £2.73 that was left over from my monthly shopping budget was potted on Saturday.
    February has been a fantastic month for potting.

    Your words to James were very true, but the memories are by far the best to keep, to my mind.

    Brilliant potting LMD

    Hi all, hope  you're as well as you can be. Still potting away but not as much as I would like DD1 is in hospital with a suspected heart attack, What a family - just get one well and another goes down!! I'm not very mobile so it's taxis when no one offers (won't ask) to take me and that's around £25 per visit. Hope she appreciates this!!!!!
