An up today on the rollercoaster of our life....the money is in the bank. And the washing machine repairman is rebooked for Friday. No wee results yet, ho hum. I suppose no news is good news.
Our landlord is sending a builder round to us tomorrow afternoon. Each time someone moves out of one of these 4 rented houses (two pairs of semis) owned by the farm, the landlord gets any work done that needs doing...the house next door (the other half of our semi) is virtually unmodernised, so needs a lot doing to it - new kitchen and bathroom (ours have already been done), new electrics (ours was made safe before we moved in, although not actually updated) and apparently needs some repairs to the roof. As our roof is a continuation of theirs, it's being checked to see whether ours needs doing too....we've already had a new chimney a couple of years ago - not that the chimney is used, it isn't, but it was in danger of collapsing. I hope it doesn't mean tons of upheaval, don't think my nerves could stand it at the moment. Although it's nice that it's being checked without us having to ask.
Had a morning out in Weston-Super-Mare this morning, it was nice to get out and blow the cobwebs away. The tide was out - and it goes out a very long way there - so no sight of the sea today. Had a coffee and a little mooch round the shops, bought some dog food that Betty really likes at a price a lot cheaper than we normally pay, and a pair of leather slider sandals for husband. He'll need them for when he has his foot operated on and comes home in either a thick bandage or even a plaster cast (I don't know which it will be).
