@Greybird sounds like you have good parking. 🚗 🚙

Just back from looking at a 70’s style house in Trowbridge this afternoon with a couple of spaces for cars on the drive.  Interestingly the estate agent had moved to Trowbridge from the Highlands a few years ago so he had lots of interesting information to share about locations etc.

Yes, very true as I have just found out, feeling really anxious about taking it back for them to resolve the issue it looks like they caused during the service.

Well the rule of three is complete.  My bank and ParcelfARCE have messed up and now SpecSavers didn't put dark enough lenses in frames I supplied.  If it wasn't for bad luck I would have no luck at all.

Nice and sunny this morning. 
Went to Barton on Sea for a walk along the cliff.  Watched some guy paragliding back and forth.
Went back to the car to get our insulated mugs of coffee and sit outside watching the world go by. 
Mmmmmm. No mugs!   They were still on the worktop in the caravan!    :rolleyes:
But it made it nice and quick to get coffee when we got back. 

Sunshine has gone and we’ve had rain.
This afternoon DH has been tidying up outside the caravan.   I washed the decking.  Then i FaceTime'd mum as my uncle was in hospital for a heart op.  So I knew she’d be worried.  Op went extremely well, just hope nothing goes wrong now.   
Got something out of the freezer for dinner but it wasn’t what I was expecting.  How?   They are labelled!   :headbang:

A Good Yarn / Re: How to make border bigger

That sounds like a good idea @BrendaP . I’ll undo the row of V stitch and do 2 rows of shells; a row to straighten up the shells, then do the rest as per the pattern. Thank you for the good suggestion. :D

The gas man has been and so far so good, the telling time will be if I have to fill the boiler again with water tomorrow but looks good at the moment.
I’m just looking out for the flying pigs that must be around
