We took the car to a couple of garages for quotes both said the whole front section of the car needed to be replaced £756 and £700 were the quotes!!!
Chris did some research and found a specialist place that would actually repair the damage rather than replace the whole front section. Suddenly £350 does not seem so bad but an expense we could well do without.
On the same day the kitchen fitter called to fix a drawer that was not closing properly. He dropped a cupboard door and damaged the flooring, and although he will pay for the damage it means having a new floor laid, which meant a trip to Northants Flooring who still had the same flooring and will replace it next week. This also mean emptying the kitchen... does it ever end?
I went to visit a couple of the sisters from church with my companion Sophia and although the meetings were good it was a sad day as Sophia will be moving away and it was our last day together.

My cousin John's funeral in Derby, the sun was shining , the church was packed. It was a day of remembrance for a really great person, friend and cousin, I will really miss him.
Oh joy a happy day...
It's funny how with some people you meet you just feel at home with, the talking never stopped and it was a really nice get together.
Having never visited this Botanical garden before we wandered around the grounds and although the drought we are going through meant all the grass looked like a desert it was a wonderful place and I would like to go again with more time and in better weather... not SO hot!
|Loved this pond|
|Flowers are so amazing|
|The greenhouse has a long corridor with greenhouse rooms leading off from it, each displaying different Countries plants.|
