Not one to let the grass grow under her feet, Gillie has found, made an acceptable offer, and signed on the dotted line for a brand new house 2 weeks and one day after beginning her search in Somerset. Not bad, eh! And the developers want completion by the end of April. So, she won't be here with us for much longer - the shortest length of time we've had any of our 'lodgers'! She'll just be 20 minutes up the road (and very handy for the antiques fairs) at Shepton Mallet. VERY handy!!!!
Moving on even further I realise it's my birthday tomorrow. I haven't had a chance to think about it over the last couple of weeks, what with trying to get everything sorted for Dairy House - only 12 days before I take over - and Gillie coming to stay, and going to Cheltenham, and packing up for Shepton 3-day Fair this weekend. We were going to share the cost of the Cheltenham overnight stay, but Pauley has decided I needn't put in my share which will be my birthday prezzie. How romantic is that!!!!! Mind you, what do I need? I'm happy to say I don't actually need anything (other than a sylph-like figure which sadly money can't buy - well, I expect it could, but no thanks), so not having to fork out for those exorbitant costs last week is fine by me. Besides, it's our 31st wedding anniversary at the end of the month and I have plans for a meal out at the new 'Bistro' which has opened in Somerton - walking distance so I won't say no to a glass of champers thanks! The scary thing is though that my next-but-one birthday has a nought on the end and I just wish the first number was a 5 but it isn't! I'm not old enough to be grown up or of pensionable age, but apparently I will be in 2010. Oh well, there's plenty of life in the old girl yet and I have things to do, people to see, and some more life to live, so I'll just carry on as if I was still 18-ish!
No photos I'm afraid ... nothing to show as it's all packed ready for Shepton, although I suppose I could show you a clear, uncluttered, empty, unsullied, sitting room floor ... but I won't!!!!
Have a super Easter weekend. Apparently in Shepton Mallet the weather is going to be dire, so we'll see whether anyone turns out for the Fair or whether they all stay home and eat chocolate. I'm not saying which I'd rather do ...
