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.

Love to you, David and family.
