After a tiring start to the day, getting the girls off to school and then making a property offer for 23 Almond Road, St Neots. Taking Di for a Little Chef lunch after hearing of many local burglaries and then driving off to Norfolk.
Settling into Harnser and then up until late sorting out my planning, computer navigation and dog-training papers and then my bath, journal and bed.
I was tired this morning after all the exertion and needing to take two head-ache tablets last night before going to bed. I laid in bed until having to get up and ready quickly for breakfast with the girls. Out to Sam and I fed him before going together to the bus stop to see Debbie and Della off to school. A much nicer and milder day with the sun shining and breeze coming from the south-east for once. I worked in my office for what was left of the morning, transacting Daniel's affairs for the end of his tax year and making an offer for 23 Almond Road before taking Diana out to the Little Paxton Little Chef for lunch.

We parked the car on the old A1 and then walked over to the restaurant from these to avoid driving up and down the dual carriageway. Saw my neighbour Doug in there with another neighbour and he was nursing a broken ankle after having had a motor-cycle accident and I gave him my commiserations over it. All of the neighbours in Paxton have become concerned about a number of burglaries in Willow Close and nearby in Gordon Road. Now both of my homes are smitten by this fear as a sign of the times. Some time updating my journal and then packing up before leaving later in the afternoon for Norfolk.
Quite a quick journey for me, despite the early evening traffic, and I arrived in Horning less than two hours later. The normal arrival routine and then just managed to take Sam for a walk before darkness fell. Ropes Hill Dyke was looking quite dry after my last trip and everything seemed to be all right and I was particularly pleased to see that Jack the eel catcher had collected up and removed my large pile of scrap wood to leave the other lawn clear. Up until late sorting out my planning, computer navigation and dog-training papers and then my bath, journal and bed.
