Herself is moving up in the world
I know you are all intrigued by the work being carried out at Head Rambles Manor. I haven’t mentioned it in a while, because there was nothing to mention.
The job was completed some time ago, and I was just waiting on some final deliveries.
The last bits arrived today, so I am now waiting for the blind man to come and fix them in.
The blind man was here a few weeks ago. He’s a very nice chap, and I asked him whether he preferred to be called the ‘blind man’ or the ‘visually impaired person’ because in these days of political correctness, one can’t be too careful. He said that ‘blind man’ was fine with him, and he went on to show us a nice range of blinds for the windows. They had to be made up especially, and they arrived this morning.
Sandy doing a final quality control check.
It’s a lovely room.
The walls are solid granite, and the windows are made of shatterproof glass with full sound insulation.
It even has its own little toilet.
You could say it has all modern conveniences?
It has some extra features that aren’t in the photographs, like a little food hatch in the door, which only has a handle on the outside, and there is a beautiful little cast iron ring embedded in one of the walls, to attach the chains to.
I hope Herself will be very happy up there.
I know I will be very happy down here.
Ooo, she’s like Rapunzel, and you can very honestly tell everyone that you’re treating her like a fairy tale princess.
Personally I’d be very happy in one of those: someone else does the cooking and washing up, cleans their own toilet and leaves me in peace?? The stuff of DREAMS.
I notice you’ve added a radiator. Is that a soft touch, or will it be disconnected to add insult to injury?
And toilet paper? Has she no hands??
Susan – I always treat her very well. None of your generic drugs or any of that rubbish.
Kae – Actually, that radiator doesn’t work! It was left over from the old room [when it did work] but is pure decoration now. The rolls of kitchen and toilet paper were there for cleaning up the paint spills. I left some sandpaper for the other.
You need a set of stocks,in the main room.when you let her out for recreation. : )
A man after my own heart and bindings, lashings, attachments, what ever is the proper way to say how to keep things “secure”
Some times the old methods are best. I know my colleagues like the new mind control chips, but …..
Popeye – She won’t have time for recreation. I’ll be giving her lots of work to do.
John O – Razor wire?
Jim C – Of course the old ways are the best. What is the point in all these new-fangled “technologies”? They are only reinventing the wheel [and making it square in the process].
The perfect place to store her, where you can safely forget she ever existed 🙂
TheChrisD – Yes. I have made it as soundproof as possible, though I suppose I had better bring food up occasionally?
Very kind of you to put a seat on the loo . . the jails I’ve been in don’t have ’em.
Baino – I spoil her. Mind you, I didn’t bother giving the wooden seat a final sanding so there may be a few splinters. I’ll get around to it some year.
There was a young nun in the bath when there was a knock at the door, which was unlocked.
“Who is it?” she says
“The blind man”, he says.
“Oh, you’re safe to come in. The door is open”.
In walks a young man in overalls. “Nice tits”, he says, “where do you want the blind?”
All jokes aside, which I know is a tough one on this blog… that is indeed a very nice room! If Sandy’s rapt attention is anything to go by, it obviously affords a great view of the rabbits in the garden.
I am the very man who installed the blinds in Head Rambles Manor yesterday and they look very well. Also pleased to inform you that my eyesight is fine!
Hopefully Grandad will post some pictures of his new blinds to show my handywork!
Ian…..that joke is as old as the hills!
Karyn – I was up there today and needed sunglasses. It is very bright and airy. The views are quite good too! I should have done it years ago…
The Blind Man – Welcome, Sir! You did a grand job indeed, and the room looks fantastic. I may indeed post some photographs. I’ll take some the next time I’m feeding Herself, in a week or two.
Ian – The Blind Man is is right. You live too sheltered a life.
