still here


I am still here.  Thank you everybody for your comments and emails, it's nice to feel cared about.

We have been house-hunting all weekend and I am knackered and slightly stressed.

We put an offer in this morning and are waiting for them to come back to us.  I am actually not too stressed about that part of it all per se, because we saw a lot of lovely places that would also be nice to live in.  It's the general 'big list of things to do' that is getting to me a bit.

I have two interesting stories, one about parrots and one about arts and crafts houses.

Back tomorrow properly I suspect ...

  1. Parrots. Parrots! PARROTS. I vote for parrots.

    :)

    Glad you're both OK. And fingers crossed re offer. Keep us posted, OK?

  7. I remember thinking house hunting would be great fun - nosing around other people's homes, like Through the Keyhole.

    It was fun for the first couple but when we were doing seven or eight a day it became like a trail and I think I had air freshner poisoning by the end of it!

    Fingers crossed you get the home of your dreams

  9. Glad you've found some nice ones, and hope your offer is accepted. I can remember how stressful it all was. We looked at about a dozen houses, and ended up buying one off my cousin! That's one thing I don't have to worry about now! Take care. And I'd like to hear about the Arts & Crafts houses!

  13. Love arts & crafts houses. Love house hunting though it is stressful

    And want to hear about the other more stressful but more rewarding experience ultimately or so my parents told me

    Sarcasm is a necessary component of accounting or so my dad said
