The Cheerful Builder is back!!!

When your blog is getting a bit stale and tired, sometimes it is a good ploy to reintroduce a well known and much loved character.

This should arrest my recent alarming decline in female readership.

“Wotcha!” he says, poking his head round the door. Little does he know that he is the Harold Bishop of blogs.

He is here to fit my new wooden floor. This is good, as at present my house is full of wood. There is wood in the lounge, wood in the dining room. It is piled high, leaning against things, getting in the way, blocking doorways.

There is more wood than the front row at Spearmint Rhino’s.

The Cheerful Builder’s phone rings. The ringtone is the theme from ‘Only Fools and Horses’.

I should not employ such people.
