So after several weeks of intensive searching and much gnashing of teeth , tears and temper tantrums (that was my Dad, by the way) my parents are signing on the dotted line to buy their new house today. I'm superstitious, so no pictures of the house until the deed is officially done, but we did take time out to crack open a bottle of champagne last night when the agent phoned to say their offer had been accepted.
I'm as thrilled as my parents (if not more so) because with time ticking away until they have to be out of their old house, it was starting to look more and more likely that they might have to move in with us on a more permanent basis. I love the idea of them being 15 minutes away though. Now the job of packing can start in earnest. Thankfully with them three hours away, I get to miss that mess pretty much entirely.
Mother's Day was all about food....(and spending time with those I love)
And since Sister of Pyjamas has tagged this picture of me completely makeup-less on Facebook at Mother's Day dinner I may as well share it with you too. It's rare to get a picture of my sister, My Mum and myself all looking at the camera at the same time without one of us looking demented.
Mother's Day also involved using enforced labour to get my get part of my front garden done....
My Dad is doing his hulk impersonation in that last picture.
And aside from going to work on Monday, I spent some time taunting Little Miss Sunshine on Facebook with my latest Haighs acquisition. Sucks to be somewhere where Haighs doesn't exist doesn't it LMS?
Things started getting a little weird when I took my chocolates for a walk, got a picture of them kicking back on my miners couch , and snapped them strapped into the car seat in the back of my car so I'll spare you those pictures...
