I'm itching to go and view the 2 caravans the site owner told us about, but we've not heard back from him yet. It seems to be a case of Somerset time - that's 'sometime when', meaning it'll happen when it happens, equivalent to the Cornish 'dreckly'. There's clearly no urgency for him, even though it's not very economically sound for him to have 2 empty plots/vans, but as far as I'm concerned, the longer it takes before we take up ownership of a van there, the shorter length of time we will have to do it up to our liking and enjoy it this year (the site closes at the end of October for the winter period). I don't do patience very well! Oh well, not much we can do, he knows we're keen to get going. In the meantime, we're continuing to acquire things we'll need to furnish the new van, I bought a few bits yesterday in a big Dunelm (love that shop, nice stuff and very reasonably priced). By the time we do finally get to own a van, we'll have practically everything we need, which is good. I just want it to be soon!
Husband saw his foot consultant yesterday, she says there's nothing more she can do for him and the pain he's still experiencing is simply nerve pain, which she says will settle down with time (it's been almost 7 months already!). She's discharged him, but said he can contact her again if necessary. In the meantime, he's going to have physiotherapy, actual face to face and not over the phone! His first appointment is next week, hopefully that'll help him.
Nice weather at the mo, but there's a thunderstorm forecast for midday, so we won't be doing much outside. Some nice weather for a sustained period would be good, it's all so unpredictable and changeable right now. It's mid-summer next month, I wish early summer would actually arrive! So many of my front garden flowering plants are behind schedule, although my roses are just starting to come into bloom.
Good friends of ours who live in Kent, the other side of the country to us, are coming down on holiday next week, so we're arranging to meet up with them for a day. We generally see them a couple of times a year, they're a lovely couple and we get on like a house on fire. Really looking forward to seeing them - and having a hug! Have you hugged anybody yet?
