Yesterday we had a brief dry spell and went to Ellesmere, taking Ben for a walk by the Mere. It's a peaceful place with just a few dog walkers and their dogs. I also got a new battery for my watch at the little jewellers as it had decided to stop and we did some food shopping. The weather forecast doesn't look good so we needed to be prepared.
Today we decided to get some diesel from the pump even though we had no choice but to pay for 60/40 split from the self serve petrol pump. We needed a dry day that wasn't windy so didn't want to wait until we could get cheaper diesel. The tank is full now so we'll be OK for heating. Water tank filled, cassettes done and rubbish disposed of, so a quiet afternoon occurred.
