Well it's going to be a busy year for us. Our house is on the market, yes we're on the move again!
I love my new diary and decided that a bigger format would be required for 2018. The RNLI have produced this great diary, just perfect for me don't you think?
I had a nice couple of weeks off at Christmas but Hubby was working and then this happened at 6.30pm on Christmas Eve-an exploding glass oven door.
Which? has an article on it and are asking people to report this to them with photos. You can find out more HERE. It is rare, but it can happen to any brand and in our case is probably due to a fault in the tempered glass. The manufacturers have been great, it's out of warranty but they are replacing the glass free of charge and an engineer is booked (although I have to pay for the visit).
It went with a real bang and then the sound of glass falling, we had no idea what was happening until we ran into the kitchen.
Christmas Dinner 2017 was tinned curry for hubby and ham salad for me. Thankfully I had bought a bag of salad just in case we fancied a sandwich or I would not have had much to eat. Still, we enjoyed our day and were thankful there were no injuries.
Hubby continues to make great progress with his health and enjoyed working with a part time job over the holidays. We feel as if life is getting back to normal. Moving house is part of this new phase in our lives and something we'd been considering for a while.
We may stay in Devon or we might be tempted back to North Yorkshire. We were considering Scotland but we were unsure of the health system and particularly access to services for Hubby if we were somewhere remote.
So I will attempt to blog regularly even though time is very limited and will keep you up to date on our house progress. On my wish list will be a big garden, full of trees, hedges and wildlife and a place to keep chickens, as well as a greenhouse and a large grass area for the dog to play. An aspect that delivers lots of sunshine even in winter, no 'down a dip' or on a north facing hillside.
Let's see what 2018 brings.
Wishing you all a Happy New Year and a healthy, peaceful and productive 2018
