Firstly I have to say a big thank you to all of you who have left such kind messages for me. I was feeling a bit sorry for myself and all these kind thoughts made me feel so much better.
I was completely overwhelmed by how many of you took the time to pop by and wish me better.
Thank you so much, it was really appreciated.
A few days on and the whole arm feels so much better thank goodness and I feel confident that I will not have to have it re-broken on Friday. That will still leave another 5 weeks of wearing the cast but I am getting more used to it every day.
In fact I have been a busy tiler!
The supplies I have been waiting for have arrived so I have been able to set about finishing off the exterior tiling.
As this ledge will be seen when the front comes off I decided to use the same floor tiles I had used in the main shop. They have been laid and sealed (PVA/Water) ready for grouting.
It took me about twice as long as usual with only one arm but I managed it.
These paviors will be outside all the Diagon Alley shops but with only one arm they were a bit of a challenge today!
Not thinking properly I made a mistake on the steps which means a bit of extra work to ensure the steps have a ledge but I hope I will be able to rectify it once they are grouted.
I had to 'cut' using sand paper only which means the muscles on my right arm worked very hard today!!
Still I can think of worse ways to spend the day.
I think my plan for the weeks up to Christmas will be to ignore all the small creative jobs for which I would definitely need two hands, which will definitely include the lighting I think but you never know......
So tomorrow the roof will go on and I will start that tiling.
Well I can't hoover, clean bathrooms, drive, wash up, cook, iron......can I?!!!!
