We have a massive pile of soil on our front lawn now, waiting on the turf and landscaping to get going and of course it starts raining. Hoping…

Pretty sure they were just the standard, but thick, towels.. we already had same towels from a previous gift from a real estate agent, so they go well with them.

Got a few options regards to the bath. I can keep the one they installed, which I tried to tonight and it is actually quite lovely, and they will either…

Yeh, the SS is going to rectify it of course. He acknowledged it was the wrong bath ordered but of course it's not a quick fix unfortunately. Need to reorder…
