Garage door cable snapped

This is the second cable to have snapped on my garage door, luckily I had a couple of spares from the last time. A complicated fix with the need of another pair of hands, but all done and took the time to clean up the guide tracks and lubrication. Hopefully this will be the last time I need to do this job. Not for the faint-hearted.

Post carpet fit

Eventually got all the bedroom fittings back in place,and a good clear-out at the same time. The old carpet was removed by myself prior to the fitters coming, and has now been given to my daughter, so garage back to some semblance of what it was before all this began.

We had to empty the rooms prior to the new carpets being laid, and lots of heavy lifting involved, resulting in a few aches and pains which are slowly recovering from the shock. I think this will see the end of carpet laying now that the whole house has been done over the years.

New Carpets

My wife decided some time back that we needed 2 new bedroom carpets, so today removal of all bedroom items has begun. One bedroom completely empty apart from the bed and even that is just the mattress on the floor and the old carpet removed.

The smaller room is partially done, with just all the computer gear and large desk, plus carpet to do tomorrow in preparation for the carpet fitters arriving on Friday. Think this will be the very last time I intend subjecting myself to all the upheaval. The rest of the house has been done over the years and will do for me.

One thing I can say is that how can a couple collect so much junk over the years? and of course we have to move all the stuff back again. And they said retirement was to have an easy life.
