fraying

I am starting to fray a little around the edges.

Our solicitor thinks it is worth putting an offer in before Monday and is currently perusing* the masses of documentation that have been forwarded to her from the vendor's solictors.

I have phoned the vendor and asked them what they use the barnyard behind the property for; I spoke to Mrs Vendor, who rather vaguely stipulated 'er, farming, mostly'. I am now wondering if there is a possibility that they could be thinking of selling them for conversion purposes at a later date; which would mean that we had neighbours right on our doorstep.

I suppose at the very least all this is providing me with very effective displacement activity; I am not worrying about our appointment with the adoption agency at all.

Excuse me while I go and like down in a darkened room and drink homemade carrot whisky straight from the demijohn.

PS. The piano is VERY flat. I may try that audio-blogging thing in order to demonstrate, if I can remember how it works.


* One of my favorite words

  5. If you were to drink sufficient of your homemade carrot whiskey I'm sure you'd find that the piano's tuning either magical seemed to get better or ceased to be an issue when playing it. Whiskey does wonderful things like that.
    Incidentally, given that the prefix "demi" suggests half - is there a receptacle out there twice the size which is called a "John"? And if so could we discuss drinking from one without grossing-out any American friends?

  9. That carrot whiskey sounds like a drink I could really get excited about. Any chance of the recipe? Pretty please...?

    Any reasons in particular why your solicitor reckons an offer is a good plan? I thought you'd decided against it... But if you do go ahead, good luck. I'm with you in being interested in the barns, though: guess you'd want to know before proceeding too far. What's the geography of the place like? Would they be near neighbours?

    Sorry. *takes a breath*

    Can you tell we had bad neighbours?! ;)

  11. Let me see; After drinking carrot whisky piano appears to be flat?
    Did the freecycle men dismantle it then to get it in the house? That whisky sounds dangerous stuff to me...
