This has been a week of long lists. We received the first quote for the bathroom, it was about what we expected, but when we had a chat about it we agreed that there was just something about the man that we just weren't quite happy with. Dan has spoken to someone else, who comes with a recommendation from a work colleague, he sounds right up our street, but wouldn't be able to fit us in until January. Dan is especially keen so I have agreed that if he can fit us in then I am (just, after some persuasion) prepared to wait.
Having said that I have said I'm not prepared to not make any headway with the rest of the house while we wait, so we've started a list and we're each going to prioritise our version then we'll see what rises to the top! Nothing to do with freebies or bargains but it has taken up a lot of my brain space.
I'm still working through the contents of the freezer and am making headway, today is a cooking day as we're going to Lytham for the 80's v 90's night of Lytham Festival, then tomorrow we're going to a football match so I want to have our meals ready. On the menu is a lentil pasta sauce, soup, nut roast and I'm going to make pie with some lentil and mushroom pie filling plus pastry that are both in the freezer.
As you know I am not the owner of a new vase but I did pick up a couple of books from the charity shop. Firstly a home book, maybe it will give me a few ideas for our housey revamp.
And a novel, I've seen this popping up all over the place, lots of people I know are talking about it, so I was surprised when it turned up at the shop as I'm guessing it's a fairly recent release.
The books were 99p each.
