It feels so good to be needed and appreciated! Last night presented such a moment!


This past week Hubby has been setting up a small gym at home. He bought me a treadmill, and himself a stationary bike. Add a set of weights and a bench........ picture completed.
Well almost.............. Hubby decided we needed a TV to entertain us as we pounded it out!

During the week he bought the TV and last night, during dinner preparation, he decided to erect the goody! Knowing that I am the handy-woman of the house, he asked if I would oblige and help him. I told him I was busy making dinner ,and that I could do the job tomorrow.

So...... Hubby and his two sons proceeded to mount the plasma TV on a bracket in the corner of the room.

I heard the odd comment ...... "Oh no... that's not right!" " Why aren't the screws going in?" " Dad, I think it's going to be very skew!"
Then I heard Hubby's plea.........."BABES , I need your help here!" After assessing the scene I realised I was needed, or forever I would have to watch Sky.NEWS with my head positioned in the 45 degree angle!

The boys were jubilant that I was now on the scene! Hubby has many talents..... handy work just ain't one of them!

So, off to work I set with two very important weapons! My measuring tape and my set of Hilti Screws! That's it girls........ and the job was done! El Pronto!

Love and hugs ...... Fifi

Just scoot over a bit and I'll bring my old ab lounger in to lay down and watch tv. It's no fun working out alone so I'll just keep you company and hand you a towel or bottle of water-- anything to be useful. :-)
