Since moving into our bungalow in late April we have been slowly cleaning, tidying and decorating as well as tackling the overgrown garden. Today’s mission was to cycle to the outskirts of Oxford to a D.I.Y Store, here they stocked the brand and colour of paint we required for our lounge. Our local store in Abingdon stocked neither brand or colour we wanted.

I wish I could have helped you since I spent 34-years in the paint business. As a cycle commuter, I occasionally carried paint home on my bike. It was only a couple of miles, but before I discovered panniers I used to carry a gallon in one hand while steering with the other hand.
I want Drayton Manor. Do you think there is any chance I could talk them down to, like, $50,000 U.S.?
Greg, the Manor has been up for sale for a few months now, if it goes unsold for much longer you would no doubt be in with a good chance with your offer.
I like the former paper mill apartments, but I’m sure they are pricey. That was a good ride, though all that weight on one side on the way home would have felt a bit odd, perhaps.
Em. yes I imagine they were very expensive when converted and even more so now.
Yes it was a bit lopsided riding for a while.
