Settling In

Settled a last.  We have kindly been given some accommodation which has enabled us to cease living out of a suitcase.
The previous occupants of the house were four male university students and it has taken a little while for us to get the place to a state we are comfortable with.  The biggest challenge was the oven. 
I think it would be fair to say they rather liked grilled food and like many young males averse to cleaning.
If you are going to enter a coalmine then you need a miners lamp.  Smile
Plenty of elbow grease and three days later there was a considerable improvement. 
Of course the real reason for all this work was………………..
Back to delicious home baked bread.   No doubt I will be able to convince Jan to bake more now she has a fantastic oven. Smile

Tom, we still have to sell our place. We've had a few inspections but now offers yet. We're in no hurry. We won't move up the road to the new place until we sell this one.
