Thanks folks. The place needs some decorating and altering tlc and the garden needs a makeover. All which will have to wait until I get me dodgy arm back into full use.
Lucky for me I bought a Steam Controller last summer so I can usefully fill in time and do some physio on me wrists and fingers whilst exercising me grey cell, thank goodness for a well stocked Steam Library. :Laughing:

What a disappointment !!

I remembered that Tenby had a great fish and chip shop from when I was house hunting. As the sun was shining yesterday with a clear sky I thought, why not pop over to Tenby, only 6 miles away, get some super fish and chips and take some pics of the sunset over the ocean.

Well the chip shop was shut till February. I stood on the cliff top looking left and no sunset,

So that's what, like $117,000? Yikes, you couldn't get much in the US at that price. Looks good! And, of course, fitting the cat flap takes priority (no snark intended).

Very nice.
I see there is a stair lift which is nice for older folks with a 2 story dwelling. My husband and I are fortunate to live in a one story "ranch" type home. I could host all the holidays and not have to worry about our aging parents getting into and moving around our home.

You do not get much around here either or in any of the nicer and handy sort of places. I could have bought nearly the same further inland into the valleys or up the coast for almost half the price but they did not have the views or the nearness of services. I am pretty lucky and am thankful to me mum and dad, shame they can not be here.

Fitting two more interior cat flaps so his highness can wander at will.

I did try for some one storey dwellings, we call them bungalows. But most were out of my price range and the three derelicts I bid on went for silly money, mind you they had drop dead gorgeous settings and views.

The stair lift, hmmmmmmmmm. Took me a while to figure out how to move it. Made a test run all the way up and down the stairs with an empty chair. Then I took a ride which was very strange due to the corners, most unusual. Tried to move it the next day and it moved nine inches and stopped. I will make time to sort it out someday as it will probably be very useful in the future.

:look:

Saw the specialist consultant at long last last week. X-rays taken and viewed and it looks like my break has healed up nicely. Whooopeee no more worries about another operation etc etc.
Now all I have to do is get all the locked up muscles working again and toned up.

Looks like it will be a decent year no matter what the weather is doing. :breakfast:
