I just put up a curtain track. Ailz says I've never done it before but, honestly, I don't remember whether I have or not. Handyman jobs are outside my comfort zone-  and I usually go wrong before I go right- but I believe I must have been in situations before where curtains needed hanging and if I didn't do it no-one else would.

The track needed trimming. We used to have a hacksaw but we probably gave it away in preparation for the move that isn't going to happen so I used a bread knife instead.  It worked perfectly well. For everything else I have my  little box of tools from Ikea- which was advertised as a housewife's best friend- or something similar- and cost something like £4.99.

I wonder if the move will happen after all. If there was the likelihood of a new town being built, that might have put off potential buyers. I think you said you had a developer who wanted to build houses and a neighbour who wanted a buffer between their property and the new development, but if the houses now won't be built, you may have more interest in people who want a house in a rural setting with land for ponies.

Anyway, perhaps you no longer want to sell, but it may be easier to sell now the decision on the new town has been made and people can be sure it won't happen.

We've considered putting the house on the open market but the reason for selling up no longer obtains. I think we'll wait. It's probably kinder to let my mother live out her life in her own home.

That is a very good reason for staying put for the foreseeable future. As long as you can cope with the care, it will be easier for your mother if she stays in familiar surroundings.

We have that same little box of tools from IKEA and Manolo swears by it...it has all the basics one needs.
