16 weeks in - Mobile again
It's nice to be able to give them their lives back after giving up so much for us, as I have mentioned before we will be eternally grateful for what they did to help us out during lockdown 💗
Its nice to see the savings not going down now, but slowly going back up and we need to decide soon what our winter plan is and try budget for it.
So I checked a load of local companies I could find on Google and sent around 8 emails out with photos attached to get a rough quote.
Only about 4 replied, 1 couldn't do it and another 2 were well over £1k, but one guy called Russell said he could do it for around £440. I invited him to come around and look at what was required and we also decided to get an additonal couple of cushions for the end under the window to make it a bit comfier, and the total quote was £500.
We agreed on some fabric and he took one half away to do and would swap over after around a week, which suited us fine.
As you can see in the photos above, it worked really well and was good to get rid of more of that horrid grey we have had to look at for 4 years now!
Anyway a week later Russell came back with one set of the cushions and they looked fantastic, and he took the other couple away. And 2 days later, we then got them back and we are delighted with the finished look!
Although not technically due till October (as a 6 month extension was applied in April), we want to get it done well before then.
This week we have also come across a leak with our power steering, so hoping it's not too bad and will get that looked at asap too.
We can also monitor the stats easily and I think it has made a difference over the last few days too.
Oh and at the weekend we managed to find a lovely country pub to have our first proper pint in a beer garden, it was long overdue!
