Ronnie has Apple CarPlay

Ronnie has been into the dealer today for an update of the onboard software to hopefully resolve some of the connectivity gremlins that have plagued the car since delivery…..

At the same time we decided to shoot for the CarPlay upgrade – only had one journey but already much prefer call handling and voice control via Siri 👍

Fingers crossed the gremlins are banished for good…..

New look for Penny….

While Simon has been out in Australia, Penny has been getting a few little upgrades – repainted wheels, blackened vents in the side and bonnet, re paired brake callipers and new black lettering on the front and back. Oh yes and new boots on those lovely wheels.

Finally, new front brakes today as part of her service at Land Rover in Leeds.

It has been an expensive two weeks but she sure does look good 🙂

Toy donation

We are midway through a pretty intense clear out from the boys rooms – there are loads of toys that have simply not been used in years so we found a car bootful to take to the tip (broken / lost parts etc) and then two bootfuls to go to a charity shop.

The Salvation Army in Batley seemed very pleased to be the recipients of the gear as they stated that they only had girls toys at the moment – we certainly managed to redress the balance.

Elliot and Oliver had a moment when they saw how pleased the small boys and girls were (that we visiting the store) when the items were taken into the shop. Simon asked them to try to remember that moment as it is such moments that makes us all such nice people – ie wanting to help others wherever we can and feel good to be positively helping somebody.

Hopefully we will not be hoarding as much stuff in the future…..

Big day today – the end of an Ossett era

Today is a big day for us – finally we have exchanged contracts on the sale of 3 Turner Close and we are expecting the cash transferring later today. It is a sad day in some respects as Turner Close is where we began our little family. but then it has been a long time in the actual selling process for one reason or another. Hopefully we will be celebrating later tonight.

The house is now emptied of all of our stuff, has been cleaned and is ready for a new family to make their own memories in the house.
