Today we made a second visit to Dunelm Mill. Not the same shop, and certainly not the same shopping list.
Jan was after a wool fleece topper pad for the bed; more hand towels, kitchen utensils and a 5 litres pail for her bread making. She was successful in purchasing everything except the pail. It is proving somewhat difficult to buy a 5 litre pail with a sealed top. Wickes, next door, had 5 litre pails of paint and I suggested we purchase the paint just to get the container. Apparently this wasn’t an acceptable solution!
I think the walk was just under a mile each way and this time it stayed dry.
After arriving home Jan did some serious Amazon surfing. The pail is available at £2.90 and the postage was [only] a further £2.90. I’m sure we could use 5 litres of paint somewhere!
In the afternoon I finished cleaning the oven, only to find it has a short to earth which trips the circuit breaker when you turn it on. I would have done better to check the oven worked before enthusiastically launching myself into cleaning it over the last three days.
Two men separately call on Jan at the house today. Initially I was suspicious, but then I realised they were delivering her presents from Amazon, courtesy of gift vouchers from both sons.
