    “Would love a larger fridge or second fridge.”

    We don’t want to keep shopping ( 6 of us) so need to store food and of course drinks. We are in our 70 s so bending into fridge difficult. Patio set in need of attention and some patio slabs were loose. But it didn’t stop us enjoying the house for the third time. Will come again!
