Well it didn't work out

We thought we could hand in the prescription and choose frames

No by appointment only, and we couldn’t look at frames, by appointment only

An appointment to hand in a prescription and peruse the frames on offer

It was completely empty

No one was perusing frames

Covid restrictions gone mad

Well I didn't get any of it did yesterday either, I didn't feel well all morning, and we went to look at Dacias in the mid-afternoon, tried a Sandero but it was awful to drive, it would lollop about at each gear change, I think it must have been a duff one as no one would build a car like that, so they sent us out in the new Stepway which was an autobox, now this was much better, Dacia, of course, is a cheapo car (if you can call £12k cheap) we are looking at these as they do a Bi-Fuel model LPG/Petrol so cheaper to run and you can drive where you like.

Not sure if we're going to buy one or not, it's just an option, we're fed up with the Fiesta, had it over two years and it was boring to start with and hasn't improved.

Packing up to make our way home. House is sold (again) for £10k more than before and we get to keep the pond and extra land. Crazy world or what!?

Lovely day yesterday with a champagne cream tea in a posh country house for daughter's birthday courtesy of her husband. Hot night due to closing all windows and rooflights in order to minimise cockerel-o-clock. I think Norfolk is a degree or so cooler than Kent.

Thanks Kev. We had a bit of a dilemma because there were two offers. The first one was from people I had showed around and who seemed quite nice. They had three houses (!) to sell and they were bringing elderly father with them. Houses were all well advanced but not yet sold. Then there was the ones we have not met but who only had the one house nearly sold to a no chain buyer. They offered the extra £10. Aren't we funny in that I felt as though I was letting the people I had only met, briefly, down by selling to the anonymous winning bidder. Head ruled over heart in the end. The losing bidder was let down gently and is still interested if the sale falls through.

Phew it am warmish out there now and in here 26.3c

We went out for lunch, took the kettle back to PC world fortunately they had stock so we got another.

My MS office 97 arrived, and is installed.

We went to Poundstretcher for our stock of Infinity coffee to be replenished.

We went to the timber yard for a cut to size sheet of 3mm white-faced hardboard so I can cover the mess the plasterer made when he blocked off a door.

I still have to go to Speccy savers, the bank (it was closed for the day) (wamkers) and the chemist.

It´s not sold until contracts are exchanged don´t forget.

I cut the grass today. Across the road they have one of these go alone things like Raymond, I´m wondering if it would be any good for my uneven ground.

Depends how uneven Jan.
I had to try and flatten down the excavations made by the wild boars with the car on a wet day before I could let my robot over it again. Even then I had to have it on a higher setting or the blades would have tried to smooth off the earth mounds.

They can cope with a reasonable slopes but ruts are not very good for it.

The FSA formerly SIB & PIA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life´s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. So they changed their name again to the FCA.

I have one of those

Although it is a robot hoover

The amount of times it got stuck on furniture made it a no go

Except in an empty room
