Window Work


As the main cause of my recent junk-mountain trouble, the tough-guys appeared to

fit the new windows.



There is an obvious reason to be a big hulky guy —– first, to remove old window and

its frames —– with sheer brutal force.  😀    (Less than an hour, 4 windows had ripped out. )



And new double-grazed, framed windows were fitted in machine like efficiency.

(Of cause, they’ve been doing the same for hundreds of the windows.  🙂 )


So, this is it —– yet, the Door fitting,  Asbestos panel removal,  new Electric cabling

etc.  still to come.    So, I’m still in a chaos to shift the mountain right to left again.  😀

While windows were removed,  strong wind has blown through the flat which made me

feel standing chilly outside.    Though, next day,  may be thanks to double grazing,  room

temperature is two degrees  higher than before. = visible benefit is here. 


Yet still, with funny practice, people keep higher heating while keep the window half open

= not much Energy saving.  (Because of  an Area heating system,  residents having boiling hot

water and regardless how much use of central heating,  bill is fixed = not cheap though.)

It was a legacy of the left-wing council = same ideology of Communism = expecting the people

to have rational mind and keen to work together for the common benefit. 

Unfortunately, man doesn’t behave like that.  Disintegrated society doesn’t have one Ethos.

—– Still, to make up so called positive friendly text saying that “We were born with good

nature hence we can live friendly happy world”  is easy, and may attract more reader to a Blog

though it is just an empty sweet words.    Real solution and the Enlightenment has to come

from  facing the situation straight with clear eyes —– or to know how  greedy and silly we are

—– Sorry, I’m a pessimist.  (I don’t see rosy world. —– that’s why Buddhists call it Samsara.) 

I need a blind or to get new curtain at least.  😀

      Thank you Lemony.
      It looks like yes. —– though, I’m not yet released from
      the trouble = I’m moving the boxes etc to window side.
      So, the mountain may block the view if not all the light. 😀

    That would be a shame, to block all the light on such a nice set of new windows ;D fra

      Oh, it’s a temporary measure. For electric re-wiring, the wall behind
      of a mountain has to be cleared to access power-point.
      Then, after the electric work, shelves has to go back there.
      So, I’m still in a midst of those box shifting works. 😀

    Remember you still have the offer of assistance from good friends if you need it Yoshizen. Just in case 😉

    • yoshizen said, on March 24, 2013 at 16:51

      Thank you very much my good friend, Paul.
      Yes, I haven’t forgotten the kind offer.
      The operation is in the shifting work and in the same time
      open a box etc to see what is in kind. = not much muscle
      but rather slow laborious work.
      —- such as to find funny tool = you can see in the next post. 😀
