Seeing Out and In

The new spring weather had finally arrived and it was now time for spring cleaning. My house needed more than just spring cleaning, it needed a major overhaul. After drawing up renovating plans with a professional designer we started to work. We tore down walls for a more open concept. We put a new fresh coat of paint on the walls. We pulled up the old carpets, and put down new wood flooring. We took out the old kitchen cabinets, put in new kitchen cabinets, a new counter top, new sink, new appliances, and stood back to see how it all looked. It all looked great except for the windows. After replacing the windows, and taking the curtains down I decided to put up roman blinds Manchester instead. Now my spring cleaning was finished and I really liked the end results.

Granddad’s Ice Cream

My grandfather had a special recipe and method for his homemade ice cream. He would prepare the ingredients in a closed metal case, which would be placed in a wooden bucket and topped with an electric mixer. He placed ice cubes inside the bucket until the case was covered. To keep the ice from melting he would also sprinkle rock salt on the ice.

One unfortunate day, I popped the lid off the metal case and accidentally allowed several ice cubes to tumble in. Unaware, I lifted the case out of the bucket and took it inside to serve. I watched as my family winced and spit out small pieces of salt, which had stuck to the cubes and fallen into my grandfather’s precious ice cream. Needless to say, my days as a ice cream maker were off to a rocky start.

Professional Looking Work Saved My Career

Last year, I was working on my first screenplay. After I completed it, I wanted to send it to agents and to screenwriting contests, but I needed to make several copies of the screenplay in order to follow through with those plans. It was difficult to find a reputable place for my printing Manchester needs, but I finally did. Finding someone that I trusted to do the job the right way has really changed my life for the better. I even won one of contest that I entered, so that was a huge bonus. I have had several compliments on the quality of the pages that I entered and requests to know who did the work for me. I never realized how much professional looking work could mean to my career. I will never take that fact that professional looking work makes you look like a professional for granted again.
