11 ish head of for new Py place of residence – 907!

Shop in Plymouth – great finds in the Pannier Market, Photography book for Lee, long lost CDs for both of us. Pair of trainers for Py. Sinful Cheeseburger at Burgerking and Sainsbury’s run. Semi-defrosted the fridge in the kitchen allocated to 907 – so the door now shuts properly and it freezes properly.
