The text message had said the delivery would arrive between 07:00 and 10:00. The Gorse Fox made sure he was up and dressed in plenty of time. As it happened, there was no panic. They didn't arrive until about 09:00. No problem, however. The delivery chaps were very nice and very helpful and we now have some nice new chairs in the family room.

Next task was get rid of the old chairs. Four of the six were useless. They had wobbly legs that just couldn't be fixed.  Those four found their way to the local recycling centre. The other two will be stored away somewhere (probably in the roof space of the garage) in case they are needed.

The rest of the day was spent buried in family tree research. This was very successful as he managed to push one branch of the Silver Vixen's family back as far as her 9 times great grandfather. He was a William Tucker born in about 1720. The Gorse Fox is certain that he can probably get further back but needs to get to the Parish registers at some point.
