Lately #17

Its time for another catch up in handy bullet points!

  • Our house is now up for sale! Email me if you want to see it online and I will send you a link. Or you can just stalk Right Move!
  • Before we had the estate agent round to take the photos for the advertisement, I frantically cleaned the house, and while dusting the bedroom, I noticed that my money plant was looking pretty droopy, so I just prodded it gently and then the bloody thing fell apart! Oh dear, not a good sign on the day that you are putting your house up for sell and relocating!

  • The estate agent who took our photos said to me that our house is decorated very nice and “its very retro isn’t it!” – Mission accomplished. My work here is done!
  • I do dry January every year and its actually depressingly easy for me to give up alcohol for one month because I am old and boring and hardly drink at all these days, what with all my clean living and all that (ha!) So to up the challenge I try to give up another indulgence for a whole year. Last year it was Nutella (because of the poor baby Orangutans of course) and I have not touched the stuff since Dec ’14 (go me!) Before that it was wine, which I never really enjoyed anyway – give me a G&T or a beer please! This year I am giving up Diet Coke and Pepsi, because its pretty bad for you and I don’t like the manufacturers ethics etc – and so far so good. I now drink fizzy water if I am out for lunch or in a pub during dry January. Its not the same buzz, but much better for me at the end of the day.
  • My Mum and Dads house has sold. It only took about three weeks to do so, and they have found a nice bungalow in Shanklin to move to. Fingers crossed it goes through OK!
  • Its a shame about Bowie’s passing. Did you know that he spent time in my hometown? And apparently not much has changed since the sixties!

  1. Good luck with selling your house! Ha, our money plant crumbled in a similar fashion last week so maybe there’s something in the air that doesn’t agree with them?

    1. Thank you! Fingers crossed it goes quickly and smoothly. Last time we moved we had a hell of a time with it and said that we are never ever doing it again!!!

      Good to know that Im not the only money plant killer out there! – I thought that they were supposed to be impossible to kill or something?!!?

      Not that I am superstitious or anything (I totally am BTW), lets just hope that it doesn’t mean that we are now both doomed forever!!!!
