Welcome to our forums.

What are you up to today.......

Keep your chins up @JoCarroll and @Riversiderouge it’ll be worth it in the end

Plenty of jobs to do around the house today, from repairing a toilet seat and the holes made by the cavity wall insulation guys, to dealing with the multiple ant infestations in the garden (not of the flying kind).

Good for you, @Riversiderouge – I’m paying for the removers to pack for me.

And the only tip I have for getting solicitors to hurry up is to have one as a brother!

Guess what. Still packing. Now on my 22nd box

Second lot of furniture going today – to the local exchange who provide for homeless families. (The first lot went to a young couple I know moving into their first home.)

The house is beginning to look a bit sorry for itself – but I’m downsizing and so it must go.

(The Saturday viewing was defeated by parking – there was a music festival in town and no one could park anywhere. Oh well … the house will sell eventually.)

Gym, Sauna, Steam and dinner at our daughters.


Bits and pieces, then taking our grandchildren to TumbleTots, stop at the DIY store & gardening centre on the way back, possibly grab some lunch out.

@Riversiderouge nearly 4 years ago we moved from a 4 bed detached into a 3 bed bungalow and it was a nightmare so I can imagine what you are going through. They say it all works out in the end, when it does I will let you know.


Another day of packing our worldly goods in preparation for our move before the end of the month…… we hope. Moving into a two bedroom bungalow from a four bedroom house is a bit of a challenge. Has anyone any tips on how to get solicitors to work a bit quicker by the way?

Gardening, tidy up the garage and tonight relax with a glass of Rose and read the latest editions of the ‘Corps Journal’ and ‘Sea Lines’.


Just mowed the lawn and fought with the ivy.
