Found a large Emma Bridgewater teapot in the charity today (slight second but who cares) its lovely - what a find - £4.75. Plucked up courage to ring our sellers this afternon and they said come round..............Yippee.............and measure. So we did and my daughter and her fiancee (plumber!!) came as well. Ladies - I loved it even more.
The smallest bedroom is a bit smaller than I remembered ie tiny! but we have a shoehorn to put David in and out on a morning! Kate loved the house and was very impressed by the downstairs. She even liked her bedroom (phew) - we measured all the alcoves doewnstairs - four alcoves, ladies - bliss. There were lots of things different about it that I noticed but they were all for the good. We are buying the dishwasher - never had one so excited about that. The laminate was a lot nicer than I remembered. We may have a problem putting the loo where we wanted it cos there is a manhole cover near to it but that is for Ross (plumber) to sort out. If we can't have one its not the end of the world I will just get fit running up and down stairs every half hour!
Anyway we have agreed with them that the 18th is fine and I came home and booked a van with a man and a man!
WE ARE OFF.........................Tally ho!
PS I cleaned my hob top and oven shelves and added the fabulous Lakeland Oven Cleaner to my hob bits (the bits where the gas comes through) - not realising you are not supposed to put it on aluminium. I have used it before jusy for a few mins and cleaned them off straight away but this time I thought I would be a good housewife and left it on overnight - went to clean them this evening and they had gone black! Poor Alan has been sat for ages sanding the black off them - they look OK now -not perfect but they will do. Motto of the day - read the instructions on the box even if you have used something before!
