Yesterday I had a lovely new washing machine installed at the manse, A+++ rated, it's very eco-friendly, has a massive load size and, being free standing rather than integrated can be properly aired, avoiding pong and mould!
Today it was the arrival of a gleaming new induction hob and a double oven, both much 'greener' than what they are replacing. Still a little way to go to complete the refurb of the kitchen (mostly tidying up of facias etc.) but definitely moving forward.
I'm really looking forward to welcoming more visitors to share in food and friendship in the near future.
Feeling very blessed, very content and very settled.
