Hot last night but not too humid so slept OK if not as long as I'd have liked. Lovely day so far with clear blue skies. I'm on dining chair sanding and painting for Possum's apartment. That'll be fun in this weather but at least I can sand them outside before it gets too hot.
Our house buyers came round last night to measure up for electric powered security shutters for the house and bars for the barn doors. Have told them we've never had a problem but they feel the need and they're for the north side so will be an added layer of insulation I suppose. He's promised to keep on feeding the birds for me as they are buying it for the rural surroundings and space.
His FIL came too as he's doing the work - retired electrician - and approves of our fuse boxes and tells me he has a holiday home at the beach town nearest our new house so we must meet up at his pal's seafood restaurant. Yeah!
Being on our own here when I had Possum there was no help at all from parents and my mum had estranged herself anyway. However we had a network of English speaking mums and babies and toddlers that et once a week in each others' homes for play and chat and that was a lifeline. We organised all sorts of excursions to play parks and so on in the summers. Still in touch with two lots gone home to Oz and one lot gone to France.
Looking forward to pics of Wightwick gardens. I love Arts and Crafts gardens and how lovely that they allow dogs. None of the RHS gardens do which is a shame for those of us responsible enough to keep them on a lead and pick up poos.
Have a good day, whatever you're up to.
