We got back in the UK yesterday but due to traffic on the motorways we did not get back to Yorkshire until after 8pm. We stopped by ForkHall to take a look through the windows – all looked good from what we could see (was almost dark).
We spent a large amount of today back in the house, and the deckit man has done a great job and the house actually feels almost brand new inside. There is still a lot to do however – we have taken much of the kitchen stuff out of the shed and begun to get them cleaned in readiness for uncle Tim. We have also got much of the garage stuff out and placed in the garage again.
Tim is bringing his bed, gardening gear (we don’t have mowers etc) and we nipped out tonight and bought a new suite for the lounge. We hope Tim likes it, although are pretty sure he will – the bonus is that it is getting delivered next week, so when he gets back from California, he will have bed, couch, TV and therefore will be good to go.
Elly and Olly have LOVED playing in the garden today – just goes to show that we really need to search for a pad in CA that has a garden – even if we don’t end up buying out there, we really need to move from the current pad in September.
p.s. Elliot did great on the flight back here, and Olly did OK. We tried to upgrade the seats before we got on but no such luck 🙁 Perhaps on the way back to CA….
