Planning for the future:

Organising our holiday. Planning accommodation and pet and livestock care.

New Skill:

Patience when navigating the confusing world of booking holiday accommodation.

I think I use checkin the website and it seems to work well. Not sure if that was helpful, but thought I would mention it.

Enjoy your house paint!
