Well the day brightened up by late morning. Again, the Gorse Fox had spent time trawling through websites looking for suitable homes to rent until we get the house we want (either by waiting for it to be built, or finding a suitable alternative).
Several new alternatives arose. A couple at Middleton-on-Sea, one at High Salvington and a couple on Bramley Green (near Angmering). One of the houses at M-o-S looks like a possibility, but the others were all non-starters.
