The week planned changed and we ended up in Lyme Regis for a few days in a Yurt, it was nice to have a change of scenery and nothing makes me happier than being outdoors and by the sea.
Having decided to stay put and update our family home, our dream house came up on the market. it needs far more than the 'full refurbishment' including some structural work that even I could see, so we're going back with a builder to get a professional opinion of the potential costs before we go any further. We might not even go for the house regardless of costs, we just need to have the full information before we make any decisions.
I mistakingly purchased normal bread instead of Gluten Free and can now pinpoint the cause of my migraines.
254 An early morning walk to the retail park and some shopping. Bacon butty and rest of day spent in front of the TV.
255 Out early to get Sunday papers, sat and read for a while, a bit of gardening, a nap, more gardening while hubby took the dog to the pub and an evening in front of the TV. A poor harvest but home grown.
256 Hubby out for the day helping a mate clear a storage unit. I walked into town, then spent the rest of the day in the attic sorting through some of my late fathers things. Malvern Priory.
257 Off to choose our new kitchen, then view a house on our street that's just come up for sale. Kitchen put on hold. Off to Lyme Regis for a couple of days with Peter and the dog. We had our own toilet and shower block.
258 Peter off fishing for the day, Bob and I just chilling out and exploring places. Bob and I played crazy golf, paddled in the sea and had ice cream.
259 Home to one very happy cat. Hubby cooked the fish he'd caught on Wednesday.
260 Walked into town to the post office, had coffee and a lazy afternoon. The first photo I've missed in 7 years, but I did have a screen shot of a request for a refund from our house rental of almost £1000.

It sounds like a great break away.ReplyDelete
Ahh! Well done with your harvest but at least you managed to grow something. All I managed this year was flowers and tomatoes. x
flowers and tomatoes is an achievement, last year we had 100's of tomatoesDelete
Glad you had a nice break away. The yurt looks lovely. We've not yet been glamping, but is on our list of things to try. The rhubarb looks good.ReplyDelete
it was a lovely quick get awayDelete
Sounds like a lovely break by the sea.ReplyDelete
So pleased you have found a house as I know how hard it is we have been on the market and had various buyers over last year but cannot find an onward purchase. Like you, plan b of investing in our current home and extending is becoming more and more a viable option. Hope it works out whichever way you choose x
looking likely that we'll be staying put but we're happy with thatDelete
Glad you had a break, and could breathe the sea air. I have never stayed in the yurt, is it cold inside? Hope you get the answers regarding the costs of the possible house renovations. Your harvest is not breath-taking, but it's still a pleasure to pick your own vegetables. :) My tomatoes didn't do well this year, in comparison to the previous years.ReplyDelete
It was lovely and warm in the yurtDelete
Good luck with deciding whether or not to buy your dream home. Lovely to have a break away. It sounds like you had a lovely time and Bob looks like he enjoyed his paddle in the sea. #project365ReplyDelete
Bob loves being anywhere with me and off leadDelete
Welcome to my home county. Lyme Regis is one of our favourite places, especially on a sunny day and my dad lives a stone throw away. Glad to hear your refund came through tooReplyDelete
I'd love to live nearer the seaDelete
Oh how exciting! Cant wait to hear the verdict on the dream house. Nice to get away for a few days too I am totally with you on being near the sea and being outside. The fish your husband caught looks yummy.ReplyDelete
The fish was really nice, knowing it was home caught makes it taste better I thinkDelete
I've been on the lookout for our forever home for years but all too expensive or in the wrong area :( Very jealous of your yurt experience! #project365ReplyDelete
We're just going to turn our current home into our dream oneDelete
Nice to get away for a bit.ReplyDelete
Waiting to hear what you decide about the house!
sadly the house isn't to beDelete
