After three lovely nights away with Dan’s family for Christmas, we’re back and working on the house. It’s a labour of love I have to admit. Each day we spend here we uncover new bits of dodgy DIY and things that haven’t been fitted and done properly. Subsequently we’re working away trying to get the house ready for us to live. Tonight will be our first sleep over at 2 T road! How exciting! However before we can sleep, we have a bedroom to finish painting. Oh fun!
In light of our lack of time and mammoth ‘to fix’ list, cooking is still out of the question. Instead we’re starting to sample some of the local eateries. Not only do we have a KFC, Burger King, Mc Ds and a Pizza Hut ALL in walking distance (it’s horrible if I’m honest), there’s more fish and chip shops per square mile than I’ve ever seen before. It must work out at one chippy per pub. Great for us when we’re painting – 2 x chip butties with scraps for less than £3! Bargain!
Back to painting for now.
