Today is Thursday 27th May

It is 5.40 in the afternoon and I am playing catchup with my blog and some emails that needed my attention.
Our car insurance is due next month and we alternate the principal driver with the other as a named driver in order to each keep our NCB valid. This year is Hubby’s turn and the quote for him is a few pounds less than the renewal for me so we are well pleased. We knew we would see a hike in premium having changed the I10 for the C3 last month, but when I calculated the top up I had to pay for the change over 12 months, we actually still come in under budget.
Every year I get a letter from one of the automobile franchises offering me car insurance ‘from £195.’ We have looked into their offer twice and on both occasions actually having a like for like with our existing policy bumps it up to between £250 and £300.
This year it has been recommended we change insurers, and we save over £70 by doing so.

Today is Day 7 of our project, and other than staining the woodwork, it’s finished.
We managed to recycle a lot of the old cupboards, and our wastage was minimal. A guy in the next road is into model making and was happy to take our off cuts and the chest of drawers which would have been a bit fussy to utilise.
Tomorrow will see us out shopping for suitable storage boxes and I shall probably be doing my post on it over the weekend. I bet you can’t wait……….
I see I have 40 comments/pingbacks to attend to so I shall get on that now, and apologise for the delay again.
Hope you’ve had a good day. As always, take care, and keep safe everyone.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. Di did you ever get my instructions on how to add a like button to your comments.

    • I did Jim, thank you and have just logged in and checked it out. I’m already ticked for both reblog and like comments. I get a lot of traffic from readers liking my comments, so a little confused as to why you can’t. How odd.

    I can’t wait to see your unit you have both done together.

    Regarding comment above on not being able to like comments, I can see the like your posts, but I have never seen like on comments either.

    • I’ve got all my pictures together now so I just have to do the writing and budget figures.
      I can like comments made by readers such as yourself on my blog, and I see likes on comments I’ve made on blogs come into my notifications. It’s odd, but I believe Jim isn’t the only one with this problem.

        Its something I have never seen on yours and there may be another blog I can’t either. But a majority, I do see the likes. I just thought it was down to what the blog template offered, or something else.

        I look forward to seeing the finished look, when you post it.
        Enjoy rest of your evening. 🙂

      • Thanks Liz. You too.

    I’m so glad you got the project done! It is a really nice bonus that all your scrap wood has found a home instead of a landfill… I’m very anxious to see the finished product!
