    Well we had a lovely lunch with our cheery pals :j And they brought all kinds of goodies with them too, most jolly :D

    Also did a day's work, which came as a bit of a shock to the system after a week off, in which my life has been turned upside down :D (in a good way)

    Today I am waiting for the tyres people to arrive (for the third time) - I asked for the first appointment 'first thing in the morning' and they said the first one they had was 8.45. Just had a call (at 8.45) saying the bloke was 1 hr 15 minutes away... I suppose I did originally pay for a 2 hour window, so as long as they're here by 10.45 they're within that... I'll eat my hat if he's here by 10am though! :rotfl:

    Tried to reconcile YNAB, and got all confused :o:o:o I think when I put the cleared starting amount into my new budget the other day, there were still some things to go out, and I got all confused :o So I've started again from now (there's nothing to go out now that hasn't already gone out) so hopefully it'll all be clear now :o

    Nowt else to report I don't think. First trip back to the big city for a work meeting this afternoon :D

    Just popping in to report a bit more admin

    * received new driving licences in the post so cut old ones up and posted back (along with V5 to change address for old car)
    * Paid £4.72 which we apparently owe to the lpg people who topped us up a tiny bit too much
    * paid £500 to the solicitor, who seemingly got his completion statement calculations wrong :mad: Hopefully that's the end of it!

    Been out for a cheery breakfast with Mr Cheery to one of our local cafes - we now have a loyalty card and they stamped us for last time too cos we'd forgotten :D Only 3 more drinks and we get a free one! :money: They do PANCAKES for breakfast which I am most excited about :D

    Friends came over for lunch, so while we were waiting Mr Cheery did a bit of sorting in the garage, and I did some surveying of the land (er, wandering about looking at the scenery ;) ) and starting filling in a couple of potholes - extremely slowly as I don't have a wheelbarrow so I'm just going back and forth with a spade :rotfl:

    Had a nice wander about with pals but it had started raining by then, and we had a three year old with us who was in danger of wholesale disappearing into some of the puddles in the field :eek: so we came back in and spent the rest of the afternoon looking out of the windows :D

    Now I've got a shepherds pie in the oven, the radio on, the wood burner merrily burning away, and I'm making a cake to take round to the local farmer to introduce ourselves properly tomorrow.

    So cheery in lovely new house :j :j It was quite a palaver but well worth it :j

    First mortgage payment went out yesterday :eek: :eek: My first mortgage payment ever :o :rotfl: Planning to start a MFW diary to start the process of getting rid of it, although as there is approximately £214,500 left it might take a while :eek: :rotfl:

    Lovely update glad to hear you are settling in. Pancakes sound lovely. I think you will find a wheelbarrow useful though with the spade your daily step count will be great
