Good luck DD. If you can get it cheap and bring it up to scratch you could be sitting pretty in a few years. Do you know a good plumber?
Its wet here. I moved the banana into the greenhouse yesterday, and dropped a same size pot of bulbs into the hole. That way, I won't have to dig the hole out again next year. Although looking at the root that was escaping from the bottom of the pot, it might need a bigger pot next year anyway. I have tulips and alliums to plant, but the rest of the "hot" bed is mainly dahlias , salvias, and thunbergia which are flowering away. I am loathe to dig them out before the frost gets them.
Unilever and Tesco are just playing silly b's. I stocked up on Persil when the big boxes were half price, and we have two jars of marmite in the cupboard. Plenty in Morrisons anyway. They did the same thing a couple of years ago. Suddenly certain products were totally missing. I had to buy exceedingly good cakes at ASDA instead. The jostling and posturing calms down, and normal service resumes. Absolutely nothing to do with brexit or the pound.
Houses around here are getting "Sold" signs up in about three weeks flat. Quite a lot of activity for the time of year. Usually the "For Sale" signs come up with the daffodils.
