Tools For Valentine’s

It’s definitely disappointing, especially as I do everything I can to be romantic and thoughtful to …

Finally Got Heat

Day 19 with no heater If you had told me at the start of this year that I would have gone almost three weeks without heating, I would’ve laughed in your face. There’s no way my family of four could survive without a heater, it would just be impossible. Us humans need heat just as …

Rusty Aluminium Windows

I’ve been at home sick for the last week and I’ve begun to notice things about my home that I dislike. I’m a busy body, so I never really spend that much time at home. I work five days a week and then see different friends every day after work, which leaves me with very …
