quick update

We took Kate and Vic out to see the new house on Saturday. Kate was determined to look round it, come hell or high water. So we phoned the vendor and asked her if that would be alright, and she was lovely about it.

Kate is coming to help me pack this afternoon. B has cunningly booked himself away on a job all this week ... .

Every room in the house seems to be full either of paperwork or Polish Washing Up. I am dealing with the paper and B has left our guests a stiff note re household hygiene. They have also used roughly a pint and a half of my virgin olive oil to deep-fry something-or-other in, and then added insult to injury by leaving the frying pan of used oil hanging round the kitchen since Friday night.

Got to get on with the paperwork ...

  3. A pint and a half of olive oil! *sob*

    I mean, I've seen Mario Batali deep-fry with the stuff, but the Italians have rather more of it available, don't they?

    Good luck with the packing.

  11. Yes, very clever of B to book himself away when there's real work to be done. I'm afraid of that had been Mr Mac, it would be grounds for divorce!

    I hate packing!

  15. It sounds like all the right sorts of frenzied activity to me. At least you are not having to rely on the football for excitement.

  16. Star - unpacking. You have to decide where to put things. Packing, it's easy - it just goes in the box and the men with tattoos lift it :).

    Milt - I did watch the football. I fell asleep.
