#365Things Day 10 – Out & About

My post for Day 10 comes retrospectively – mostly because it was a long day and I fell asleep before I could write it. We spent the day looking at rentals in Epsom yesterday.  Having looked at a few now, we’ve moved on from the $400-500 pw range and these ones were all $550 pw…
