It's a lovely day today, but I'm going nowhere...except maybe to the shops if I can fit it in. I'm having problems with the drains, it's not an emergency yet, but they do need clearing out. So...I've just phoned up the property management company, who now need to contact my landlord to find out whether or not he's prepared to sort out the problem. If he decides not to do this I'll then have to find a drain unblocking company; more phone calls, more waiting, and more expense.
Planning a walk in the Peak District is much simpler, even given the problems that might happen with public transport.
