My parents are right in the middle of having a beautiful conservatory built on the side of the lounge and we have arrived right in the middle of all the mess! Today and tomorrow the old wall is coming down to open up the conservatory to the house. We decided that perhaps it would be a good idea not to be around!
We organise with one of my old best friends to go to Brighton and stay overnight with her. Bev lives near the seafront in Hove - actually. She had 2 boys, Austin who is nearly 10 and Thomas 7.
We got there at about 11 am after a 40 minute drive from Reigate.
Of course Bev was thrilled to see us all and so it was another exciting catching up day! She and her partner Oli (who has moved out unfortunately) have nearly finished doing up their lovely home now and it really looks great.
However poor Bev has been having problems with the downstairs toilet which refuses to flush! She also couldn't get the hot tap to turn on and also the light didn't go! She really wasn't able to sort it out by herself and I think she had tried to get someone to look at the toilet but had been given some inaccurate advice.
So Steve had a look and decided that he would be able to fix all of the problems for her.
We went for a long walk in the afternoon and went to look at my old house in Molesworth Street, along Hove Seafront (in the wind) and also to the pub opposite my old house for a drink!! We also had ice creams at Morocco's which Bev and I sometimes went to in the old days when we used to have nothing better to do than lie on the beach all day long!
Bev made a spectacular Lasagne for dinner which everybody enjoyed and the kids went to bed no trouble at all!
