Silcoates Junior Graduation 2018

Last night we attended Elliot’s graduation from Silcoates Junior school.

Elliot and his class mates were treated to almost two hours of reminiscing over their last 6 years within the school with some lovely montages of photographs intertwined with little stories from Mr Boyer and of course presentation of awards for the children.

Their theme for the evening was the Oscars and so they were each introduced to the hall full of parents as they individually made their entrances. It was simply wonderful to see how mature they have all become and how they are all developing into wonderful people, each with their own fabulous personalities mixed with super senses of humour.

The awards were setup as film related, so either a specific film or an actor portraying a part in a film that sits in harmony with their personality and traits that they have developed individually while at the school. Elliot was introduced as the Tin Man as he has no rust on him but has a huge heart with nothing but kindness and good things to say about everything and everybody.

We are so incredibly proud of the young man he is so quickly becoming and while we are nervous that he is about to be joining the senior school, we are super excited for him as he embarks upon this next stage of his journey.

Gas….

Yesterday we had a knock at the door – Northern Gas networks wanted to test the pressure of he Gas at our house. Funnily enough we have been experiencing gas pressure issues where he oven doesn’t cook particularly well or wailer in the year the Gas fire was bubbling away to itself.

We had put it down to the fact that the new houses were being built in Flockton and that it was negatively affecting our supply.

Anyway, turns out all of the houses in Kirkby Grange are experiencing the same and that it transpires there is water in the gas pipes somewhere near here.

The poor guys from Northern Gas Networks have now been working on it for the last 24 hours and still haven’t located the actual leak 🙁

The negative news is that we were switched off from around 9:30 pm last night so while we were able to shower this morning (still has hot water in the tank) we may be taking a cold one tomorrow 🙁

Hopefully they sort this out soon…

Refund

Only 7 or 8 weeks after starting a dispute with Land Rover regarding the full extended leather option pack on the new Velar (incorrect stitching on the dashboard), we finally have confirmation from Land Rover that they will provide a full refund on the option that we should claim from the dealership.

Clearly this is the right and only cause of action based on the fact that we bought from their collateral that showed a different dashboard from the one that was ultimately delivered to us.

We are thankful for the result but very disappointed for the way in which it has been handled.
