I am taking a brief break from mucking out the entire house - the estate agent rang at ten and asked if someone could come round to view at three this afternoon. As we've been either a) away b) maniacally busy c) maniacally stressed or d) sleeping, all week, the entire place looks like the set from The Young Ones. Hopefully they won't want to look in the fridge.
Because of the Not Previously Mentioned Stray Cat Issue*, the house smells like a cat rescue centre. And I am having a not-really-able-to-lift-things day. So I am not going to bother to hoover. I'm not even dressed yet - that is probably the most sensible thing to do next.
More post-viewing.UPDATE: Well, they liked both the house and garden, a LOT. But the chap has arthritic knees and ankles, so they don't think that the steps to the garden will make it suitable for them. But, such a lovely, lovely couple (originally from Tadcaster, so also, very VERY Yorkshire). And I didn't mind having tidied the house for them. Unlike the people we had the other week who let their small children run wild around the house.
I am now going to make myself a nutritious smoothie and sit and read a brain-lite novel for a bit and luxuriate in my clutter-less house.
Oh, in other news, B has been having a nightmare trying to sort out technical issues with the kit for a theatre show. The show is currently in Vienna and after a lot of bench-testing and compatibility testing (including the inadvertent surprise-explosion of some of the kit whilst they were testing it) between them, he and the suppliers seemed to have tracked down the problem and the suppliers have sent out replacements. Which TNT have sent to the wrong country. How do you confuse Austria with Eire? Okay, the show is going to Eire next - bloody luckily - however, Eire wasn't mentioned AT ALL to the suppliers, who organised the delivery. Just the venue address in Vienna. So mental note to self - NEVER use TNT for ANYTHING.
And for today, that is all. Thank you, and goodnight.
* very young, very thin, very dirty, very pregnant - but quite friendly if you ignore the tendency to nip and the fact that she nearly had the top of my finger off while I was giving her a worming tablet - and now in a four foot by two foot cage in the sitting room waiting for the Montgomeryshire Cat Rescue to have space to take her. All repeat after me - ALLY AND B CANNOT HAVE A FOURTH CAT BECAUSE THEY ARE HAVING A BABY IN SEPTEMBER AND ALREADY HAVE ENOUGH ANIMALS, POULTRY AND INSECTS TO LOOK AFTER. Just to make that clear. *waves ingratiatingly at B*.
