I hardly dare mention it but the house is under offer again. I can only say that these potential purchasers appear very serious. They have offered the full asking price for a quick completion and asked that I take it off the market. I refuse to get even remotely excited until I have the electronic pennies in my hot sticky account.
An interesting few days are ahead. The Smart One and I will be keeping close company whilst K is in hospital having her three ruptured discs sorted. I plan on walking his, not so little these days, socks off partially to distract him and also because I need to lose the extra pounds put on since Lilah went. (I promised myself I would keep up the walks but at first found it too upsetting to go without her and now – well let’s be kind and call it inertia.) To keep things as normal as possible for the Smart One I’m moving in to K’s today; admission this evening, op tomorrow. How soon I return home will depend on how well she mobilises. I will however be doing the school run for several weeks. N.B. I shall not be driving a 4×4 nor shall I be looking Yummy!
What is being called the St Jude’s day storm passed us by here overnight Sunday with scarcely a gust; OK, it was perhaps a tad breezy. I got to work in under usual time despite negotiating 3 fallen trees and a couple of very deep puddles. It’s half term and the Yummy Mummys in their 4x4s were having a bit of a lie-in. Bless.
