Wow, autumn hit hard, temps dropped dramatically and we discussed putting the heating on, but just layered up instead.
Cat and dog have been miserable as they can no longer sunbathe all day.
I dedicated Thursday afternoon to queue for fuel. We have 4 garages within 3 miles, I drove the loop. Out of diesel, closed, out of diesel and no queue, straight in, filled up and home within 20 mins.
Having costed the move, stamp duty, sales fees, solicitors, refurbishment and purchase price, plus the inconvenience of moving twice as we'd have to factor in rental costs while the work is carried out, we've decided we quite like the more simpler life where we go out, come home, potter around or just get on with making and doing things, so we're staying put. However there will be a new kitchen, bathroom and shower rooms as well as an extension and landscaping the garden. But the rest of the house is more than liveable with plenty of room for visitors while we have that work done.
268 A food shop and lazy calm before the storm, son and his wife with grandchild arrived for the night, we had a roast dinner and chilled out watching TV.
269 Off to the RHS Malvern Show for the day, sun shone and lots of fun was had, absolutely exhausted at the end of the day.
270 Some tidying up and generally chilling, TV, dog walk, time outside.
271 Second house viewing with builder, then him and Peter went off to play golf. I was dropped in town and walked home. The house has all it's original Edwardian features, sadly to make the house liveable and warm, a lot of them would be lost.
272 I popped down the retail park, did some gardening, moving plants around for winter, did the ironing, hoovering, cleaned the guest room and ensuite, walked the dog and cooked dinner.
The cart was waiting for me to come home, all it does is wait for me to feed it.
273 PJs all morning, then off for fuel. Hubby is finishing off a head board he's making. As the weather has turned it involves a lot of me helping him lift it in and out the house while he sands and paints. In between I started making some Christmas decorations.
274 Off to Ikea with a friend, then DIL and grandchild joined us in the afternoon to play with the twins. On the way home I hit a badger, lost the front light casing and cracked the bumper.
