A Trip To Newport And Some Good News

On Wednesday we left a Whixall in a snow storm, to come down to Newport. We had snow showers as far down as Craven Arms but as we came further south the temperature went up and the snow was nowhere to be seen. We popped to see Paula who kindly accepts all our mail before going to Clare's house.Ben the dog was delighted to see Poppy his mate, who gave him lots of licks.

On Thursday it was time for me to have a breast squeeze also known as a mammogram and Eric to go the doctor's  for the results of his blood tests, before we took Ben the dog fir a walk around the grounds of Tredegar House in Newport. It's free  to walk around the grounds although you have to pay to park unless you belong to the National Trust. Later we  had pizzas for tea with Lisa and Gwen, Ben and Clare followed by naughty chocolate fudge cake.

We planned to go back to Whixall today but as we left my phone rang, I thought what does the buyer's solicitor want to know now but it was good news. The contract was ready to sign for the sale of my deceased dad's house and the exchange is happening next  Wednesday. It's taken four months to get this far ....unbelievable as there was no chain involved. We unpacked the car and took the dogs Ben and Poppy out for a walk in the park.Later we had  fish and chips to celebrate the good news....gosh we are easy to please.
