Go Back To Start, Do Not Pass Go, Do Not Collect £200

So here we are back at square one, the house is back on the market and we’re waiting for the phone to ring. We asked you to come with us on our travels and feel like we’ve let you down somewhat by not actually travelling yet but after a week of doom and gloom we’re back to being positive, it only takes one person! We love our house, our garden and the community that we are a part of and know there must be someone else out there who thinks the same as we do.

Dave has spent most of the week in the garage again, this time with the Berlingo. He fitted a new front suspension spring, timing belt and clutch. It now feels like a brand new car and has a shiny MOT to go with it. He has now turned his attention back to the Kon-tiki and prepared the floor for the new lino.

Ann-Marie has had a busy week dancing, 3 practice nights and 2 bookings, one with Slapdash at Moulton Mill for a St Georges celebration and one with Pig Dyke Molly at the Joint Morris Organisation Day of Dance in Bury St Edmunds.

We took advantage of the fantastic weather on Sunday and spent the day tidying up the garden, pulling out bindweed and dandylions, emptying the duck pond, cleaning out and topping up the fish pond and mowing the little lawns.  A very productive day that left the garden looking spick and span.

We finished the week on a high.  For the first time in a long time we had a 2CV on the road for the monthly Middle East Nomads 2CV club meeting at the local pub.  Good beer, an excellent carvery and great company, maybe staying put for a while longer isn't so bad after all.
