Last Rites for Ann's Mondeo/Nicki visits...

Mondeo
Took a trip to the Dealership today to clear-out Ann's car. We've still not heard from the Insurance Company regarding what they'll offer us, but we're obviously looking for the best price! This was a really sad moment - yes, it's only four wheels and a lump of metal, but the car has been with us since March 2002 and it saw me through some difficult times when the business wasn't doing so well. The fact that it was all paid-for also made it an attractive possession. Apart from the problems we had with the alternator a few years back, it was very reliable and very comfy on long journeys.

So, life goes on and we're a one-car-family fin the short-term. This will mean some careful scheduling of which-of-us-is-going-where so we can make best use of my new car.

Nicki Visits...
Nicki arrived around 9.30 and after some chilling out and catching-up, Ann and Nicki went off shopping. They got back about 1.30 and we sat outside and had lunch - pizza and slad. The weather was GORGEOUS!

After lunch, around 3, the girls went for a walk to Wicksteed whilst I stayed at home and cleared up. We probably going to use the BBQ tonight for the first time this year!

The girls got back around 4.30, so it was time to catch up with the newspapers and generally chill-out...

We ate late and Nicki left around 9pm. It was good to see her and we've set another date in the diary for a few month's time...
