an
OCR Level 3 Certificate in IT User skills (ITQ) (28 Credits at Level 3)

Plus many more, too many to list ....

However I am absolutely thrilled to announce
That I have passed my Maths Exam and have gained MY
NCFE Functional Skills qualification in Mathematics at Level 2

For us oldies this means that:

I have recently achieved the equivalent of:
Eight "A" Levels
and
Twelve "O" Levels

and I'm not finished yet. You see I have now got the learning bug and want to do more! and I'm not finished yet. I have signed up for English Next! What this post is saying is that its never too late to achieve things in life. You can achieve whatever you set your mind to doing and you are never too old to do so. If I can do it, anybody can!

Work in the house

Picture
Phase one of the front room - Continued
When we brought the house we didn't realize that it needed new floors throughout, however Gary has done the work himself and we now have a nice new floor! We will not be putting down underlay or carpet until all the work in the front room is finished and at the moment it is far from done. Gary has been busy, he has rewired the old ones and wired new sockets. He has dropped cabling including data cables into the wall ready for phase two. The plumber came and laid a new gas pipe under the floor, with a connection point in place ready for our new fire, which is incidentally sat in the bedroom at the moment and will be fitted when the fireplace and surround is ready. We have had the chimney swept ready and checked to make sure it is ok for the fire to be fitted. I have ordered some amazing wallpaper and beautiful tiles, I can not wait for them to arrive, fingers crossed that they will arrive in one piece.

During the replacement of the old Gars pipe, one of our water pipes has been knock and has developed a leak, it is more of a weep, but will need to be fixed. Gary's dad was a plumber, and has taught him plumbing, so Gary will fix that. Luckily the weep is onto some floorboard in the cupboard that has not been replaced yet.

Here is the last area of the front room that needed a new floor. The floor will be put down as soon as Gary has done the electrical work that needs to be done.
I must say it is really interesting seeing my house from this perspective.
As you will have seen we have thrown away the old carpet.

I have been busy making overnight oats

Raspberry and Cherry overnight oats with Natural Blueberry fat free yogurt, yummy!
Picture
After a couple of weeks off the diet over Christmas and new year we have got back on plan with our diets. It is really easy to build in bad eating habits to your diet, its not so easy to refrain though! I was lucky and only put on 2lb over the holidays, however Gary was not so lucky and he put on half a stone. Fortunately we have both lost the weight that we gained and are back on track.

OUT AND ABOUT

Gary and I went to Wales to see the New Year in with our friends
Mick and Barbara. This is something that we have done for many years, however this year we went to the Saudersfoot New Years Day Swim. None of us were brave (or indeed silly) enough to go in ourselves, but there was 1,856 people who did!

This year is the 33rd annual swim, and below are a few photographs that Gary and I took ©Paula Phelps and ©Gary Phelps

New Gas Pipe
We have had a new gas pipe laid under the front room floor to the boiler. The old one was running outside the house, was constantly on show and look hideous!
Nice new one now runs under the floorboards and goes to the boiler.
I have a nice new gas fire that is going to fitted when the preparations have been made. We are altering our fireplace.
New ElectricsGary is gradually rewiring the whole  house, He is putting lots of new sockets in the front room which will certainly make life easier. Having to replace the floorboards has its advantages after all.
