At the hotel we were treated to a lovey afternoon tea. We had delicately cut sandwiches, meringues, chocolate brownies, sponge cake, scones with jam and clotted cream, and so forth. It was all provided courtesy of a voucher provided to the Silver Vixen as a gift from Mrs Tiggywinkle and Badger for her last Birthday. It was a lovely change and excellent way to spend the afternoon.
Today was a little more prosaic. Firstly, a plumber arrived to sort out a couple of minor problems we had identified in the new house. He couldn't have been with us for more than 15 minutes - but at least the problems are sorted.
Soon after the plumber left, the man from the blinds/shutters company arrived to start his detailed survey. This took about 3 hours and was meticulous. At the end the Gorse Fox paid the deposit and we booked a tentative date for fitting the blinds (though will have to wait longer for the shutters).
