Well all still progressing at a rate of knots and still a bit dreamy here I can’t quite get my head around what I am doing so instead I am kinda letting it do itself! Have discovered that Isle of Wight planning office is always engaged which does not help me answer the problem of garages, I want to put a wooden garage on the land at the rear of the pub for the bike but the planning rules are measured against the original house, herein lies the problem there is no house! I am hoping that I can use the consented plans as my comparator but need confirmation from the planning before I go building things.
Of note, I had a final pint in the tenure of Del and Carol at the Walton Victory last night and I am told that the girls are coming out of the Queens Head in May, with one other pub up for lease that makes 3 landlords exiting stage left! I am rather nervous that the ever reported ‘death of the local’ is getting too close for comfort.
Delightful drive to Wiltshire today in order to strip a compressor tommorrow, just wanted to write that whilst I still could as still can’t quite fathom how I will survive without heavy Engineering and massive budgets.
