Today started with a lie in for me and Tommy, we even got a cup of tea in bed thanks to my mum. The rest of the morning was spent catching up on some reading followed by a trip to the garden centre for some bird food in the afternoon. After tea with my parent I we went to visit my sister for a few hours, when we arrived my niece and nephew were there also which was good. Of course Tommy enjoyed all the attention as usual and managed to secure several treats during the visit, is there any wonder I can never get out of the house with the car keys without him begging to come with me?!


Monday 10th February 1992.
Got a bill for £142 for the house insurance from the Halifax. Even though it was expected it came as a bit of a blow all the same. As far as money goes it seems to be one thing after another at the moment. Mrs Scott phoned to say that one of the people renting our house has left but she thinks she has found two more people to take her place.

Whilst we were working at this particular estate in North Yorkshire we still retained our own property in Alloa, Scotland. When living in what is called a tied house (A dwelling provided by your employer as part of your wages) if possible its a good idea to still have your own place to fall back on as a 'tied house' is only as permanent as your job, and as we all know in these times no job is for life. Anyway Mrs Scott was the kind neighbour who was looking after our property for us with regard to renting it out whilst we weren't needing it for ourselves. The Halifax was the building society with whom we had the mortgage on the property.
