    Glad you are settling in. I found sleeping easier last night too.
    If you have built castles in the air, your work should not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.

    The good , I have ordered my blinds today . Got a few things sorted out on the finance front. Car insurance renewal was £392 , almost a £100 more than last year. Did some quotes and got as low as £347 . Decided to phone existing insurance and they got it down to £330 so have renewed with them. Paid in full again, that always feels good.

    The bad , either I am imagining things but I think I may have squirrels in my loft. When I sit near the window there is a big air vent and I keep intermittently hearing noises from it, then like scratching noises , but only in this corner, nowhere else. Not sure , but will phone pest control at local council Monday . I have a leak on my washing machine as well , that's getting sorted tomorrow . Then the fan in the bathroom seems to be on all the time so that's getting sorted tomorrow. All things sent to try.

    Squirrels hopefully preferable to mice or rats? Good job not bats as they are preserved. Sorry there are a few snagging problems, hope you get them sorted soon.

    Re the house insurance I only ever pay around £100 for buildings and contents for the year, although my house is always occupied 24-7 which may help. I reckon you could get yours a lot cheaper though.

    Hopefully it is something they can get rid of quite quickly for you. I hate how insurances always up their price and then they bring it down again when you phone them. If they gave you the best price in the first place, it would save them and us a lot of time. x

    Well done on sorting out all your packing! And it was so hot that day too!:j

    Oh dear to the 'lodgers' though. Hopefully you can get them evicted soon!:eek:

    When the new blinds are up they'll bring a smile to your face!

    Have a good Saturday!
