There was a lot of blue sky but not much of this..
sitting and enjoying it. I think I managed 15 minutes outside with Anth
doing my crochet and him doing his study (he is doing his second year part time Open University degree in Social Work - can't remember the fancy title it no doubt has!)
On Saturday we drove Tom to his new digs. Oh my... It's not often that I'm rendered speechless but how on earth can a landlord charge such huge rents for what is basically a hovel! There was no curtains in his room, no light shade, his furniture falling apart and everything was filthy dirty. I had been quite brave until I saw his room then the hot silent tears flowed on the drive to Tesco to buy him some food. But the 2 texts from him tell me he is OK and I keep telling myself that most people have had the dire flat sharing experience and that it can only make him a stronger and better person in the future. I'm just hoping that he doesn't pick up some horrendous bug from the kitchen and bathroom in the meantime!
Later at around 8pm we arrived at Ikea and bought 2 rugs, a lime green one( like the leaves on the CK wallpaper) and a black one. We are not sure we will keep them as I would like a shaggy deep pink one (like the roses on the wallpaper) but have not seen one yet.
Ooh, that's the door...the chimney sweep has arrived...bring on the autumn! See you tomorrow.
P.S The parasol was bought from Amanda at her stall at Totnes market. She has a choice of pink or blue with white spots. If you would like her email please let me know.
