First up for today, I take Tallulah down to the Vet's for her spey operation. No more puppies for her. She did not cope well with her first litter, so it's the best thing to do for her.
Next: I have a lady coming from a moving company to do a quote for our move to Hamilton.
Next: I will be trolling the Real Estate sites for new listings. And making a list to look at tomorrow or the weekend.
Next: TODAY IS ARCHER'S 1ST BIRTHDAY!!!
They are coming for dinner and cake. BEX... bring the cake would ya? lol
I am NOT feeling so dejected today. As many people have told me, if it was meant to be, we would have got the house we wanted yesterday. Obviously it was not meant to be. Our new home is out there, just waiting for us to find it.
We can stay in our present home for longer than the 'settlement' day, as the purchasers are not in any way ready to move yet! So that is good.
I expect we will 'rent' our home from them. That will be funny.
So, there ya go. My day is full. And I am going to be positive. Being miserable is NOT FUN. Nope, not at all. Sooooo... I won't be.
Tallulah is safely at the vets... and I am ???
Had a little change of plans for today. More on that later!
3.51 pm: and I am home after taking an unexpected trip to.... HAMILTON.
Guess what I did there?
WE BOUGHT A HOUSE! Yes we did indeed. We decided not to piss around with renting/moving twice bla bla bla, so we bought our 3rd choice house.
We both love it. Maybe not as much as the other two... but it is still lovely, and we are only too happy to call it 'HOME'.
When we lived in Hamilton 14 years ago, we used to go on little 'tiki tours' around nice neighbourhoods. And this area was TOP of our list of 'we would love to live here'!
And now we will ! *smiles*
Once again, I shall not divulge any photos till middle of next week, once it is no longer on any websites... and it has gone UNCONDITIONAL on Monday or Tuesday.
Actually, I took some outside photos today of it... so will upload those and see if I can put any of them on here, without giving away the address.
The poor kids are having to walk home in drenching rain today. Oh well... that won't kill them.
Just picked up Tallulah. It was horrible! She tried to bolt when the vet opened her pen, and the vet had to grab her... and it must have hurt cos she screamed holy blue murder!
I got a huge fright cos she cried so much and so loud!!!
But, she's all good. She's now in the spare bedroom where it's peaceful and quiet.
Bex and the boys are here, and we are awaiting the arrival of the men before getting dinner.
And OMG do I have a story to tell you about something that happened today!!! But... it will have to wait until tomorrow... there's plenty on here already.
ABOVE: Opening presents. Grandma and Granddad gave him some winter clothes.
ABOVE: Funnily enough, he liked the paper the best!
ABOVE: Bex made this cake for him. Coincidentally, the birthday card we gave him was also a Cookie Monster!
It was a very tasty cake too... I've got another piece to enjoy tomorrow.
