An update on the house!

Good afternoon, what a glorious day today, around 20C here in London. We came back down here this afternoon ready for work tomorrow :(

The good news is that we exchanged contracts on the house last Thursday. The buyer had delayed by a couple of weeks but we should complete by the 10th or earlier, may be even on the 3rd! It's good news for us. I've also formally resigned now from my full-time job in London, all being well my last day is 22nd October. I will be sending out change of addresses to my lovely friends and family next week, also need to cancel services to the house, lots to do and not much time to do it in. We have already redirected our mail from the house so if you do happen to post to London don't worry we will receive it in Suffolk at some stage.

The bad news is that I have tennis elbow :( I've had it for a good week now. Unfortunately I did a bit of sorting out in the bungalow yesterday and am paying for it today as my left elbow is as bad as ever and I'm suffering.

Mum is still not feeling that good. Her back is really paining her. We brought her over to our bungalow on Friday and I did a roast lamb dinner (her favourite) and she enjoyed spending a few hours with us. We even managed to get her to laugh by watching Keeping Up Appearances and Last of the Summer Wine on TV. I love watching those.

No crafting at the moment due to my elbow but hope to get back to it soon, haven't even started Christmas cards yet so it could be bought cards this year :(

Take care, will try and update you as and when.

Ooops this seems to have been doing the rounds as I haven't anyone to send it on to. Will have a think see if I can find some.

Jenny has also tagged me - thanks Jenny - I don't normally do tags but these questions are easy to answer. A bit of light reading for you :)

What was happening 10 years ago? - Almost the same as now - working, living in the same place, doing the same things, although I wasn't making cards and scrapping then, but I was cross stitching.

5 things to do today - Spend a full day at work! My boss returned from leave today so it was no getting away early. Chase estate agent and solicitor. Do the washing (not done); cook dinner for tomorrow (again not done :( ) and book David's appointment at the surgery - remembered that one!

Snacks I like - :) well that's easy really all the things that are naughty - cake, chocolate, cookies, crisps. I'm comfort eating at the moment which is NOT good - too much stress.

What I would do if I was a millionaire - Buy a detached bungalow with a huge craft room in it and a den for David. Give money to family and friends and some to charity too, I'm not greedy and we wouldn't need that amount of money, just enough to live on.

Places I have lived - Suffolk, London and now on the move back to Suffolk :) yay

Not sure who to pass the tag on to so will have a think and come back.

Just to update you - Mum came out of hospital last week and is on the mend though her oxygen levels are still not good and she might need oxygen at home. We spent a few days in Suffolk over the weekend which we enjoyed, even went for a blowy walk along a promenade on the day it was gale force winds - certainly blew the cobwebs away :) managed to make a few cards too.

No new news on the house front yet, there might be something in the wind but don't want to pre-empt anything so won't say too much at the moment.

Take care
