Rain - at last

We woke to rain this morning, it appeared to have rained overnight and it was still spitting and spotting, so no watering needed and no gardening, just when I had decided to plant up the pots and put some geraniums in the bare spaces in the border.

Monday clean done, DB pushed the Dyson round for me. I emptied it and cleaned the filter, it was very mucky, I really must take it our once a month, the water was disgusting. the filter will take a day or do to dry, so its in bits just now.

DB had soup and bread for lunch I had a cheese and  brown sauce sarnie.Cut the meat off the bone from yesterdays lamb, will make a salad later and do a couple of jacket spuds. I used half the strawberries yesterday, will finish them off tonight.

A bit of tidying in the sewing room, I need to start putting some of the Christmas stuff together, I need backing and binding fabric. Ironing to do as well, the bed linen from yesterday.

The close is very quiet, two of the residents are on holiday. I spoke to my neighbour this morning...P was a little better yesterday when she went, they had a picnic lunch outside. I am taking her in either Thursday or Friday, its her choice, I need a visit to the shopping centre for some stuff from Wilkinson and also Bon Marche to see if I can get something for 'the wedding'. I could also do with a couple of skirts and a new pair of winter trousers.


I was looking through the local paper last night and came across an advert for our old flat.....remember we had been in 8 weeks when we were told that the owner was applying to knock the place down and sell the site. Well the planning application was knocked back and had to be altered, eventually it was granted and the house put up for sale. To cut a long story short, no one wanted to buy the house and demolish it, so 3 years after we left it is being rented out again. I cannot help but gloat, that woman was the cause of me having to sell my sewing machine to fund the move, we moved twice in 6 months, we just did not have the cash to pay for a second removal. I must admit I was a bit daft, we should have applied for re housing at that point.

It is 2 years on Sunday by the date since we signed for the bungalow........a lot has happened in 2 years............
