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

Iīll have to see if I can get one on trial.

Kev, we are well versed in contract breakages. We had the house on the market about ten years ago and we signed contracts three times with three different buyers before they fell through at the very last minute. T'was meant to be, though, because fate decreed we would get planning permission when the council became short of housing and were in danger of incurring heavy fines for lack of building new ones. Our agents are not showing people round until they are in a good position to proceed. This buyer is sold to someone who has exchanged contracts (if I understood it right). If you want to buy a house round here then you need to sell yours first. Lots of people are selling and renting or selling and moving into a caravan etc.

I'd be glad if Liz decided to sell this place, I've never been that keen on it, the actual layout is good all the rooms are a good size, and the garden would be ok if it wasn't so steep, and we have a great vies over farmland mainly, but it is a cold draughty place, we have several steep steps from where we park the car/van and the drive isn't really wide enough for both, another 3-4 feet would be better, but because we are on a steep hill access onto the drive is awkward too.

Still got stuff to do if I can be bothered, nothing urgent, we went for a coffee yesterday afto, and it was closed, the staff had covid.

Get it valued, Kev. For insurance purposes of course That might tempt 'er. We swore we would move nearer to amenities before we got too old. It seems the amenities might be coming to us.

Chris has had an abnormal bowel smear test so has to go have a colonoscopy on Tuesday. Before then lots of "clear out" medicine and a covid test to get through. They are quick off the mark.

Have taken my eye off the ball with progressing the bungalow. Now find out that tilers have an, at least, 12 week waiting time to start a job Chris can do most jobs and has made a good fist of tiling in the past so he might start with the main bedroom en suite before installing the shower toilet and handbasin. At least, then, we will have a fully functioning bathroom if we have to move in.

Tee Hee, I have still got my original list to complete, Bank, and chemists, and a bonus trip to Wickes for some skirting for the back porch.
