The final countdown

There's an old British comedy called "Some mothers do ave em" and this week I've been reminded of a certain episode on many occasions! It's the one where Frank and Betty (the main characters) move house and as the removal van turns the corner into their road their house falls down. Their bad luck continues and by the end of the day Frank has managed to alienate all their new neighbours and break numerous things in their new place.

I'm very much hoping this is the exact opposite to how our moving day will go tomorrow!

It's all come around extremely quickly - but once we'd made the decision, we thought it best not to hang around.

E obviously has no idea what's about to befall him. C is much more clued in. He's already put dibbs on the biggest bedroom and is making overtures on the vegetable patch at the bottom of the garden and the hoola-hoop tree (we're yet to disillusion him of the fact that it really was just a hoola-hoop stuck in a tree and not a tree that flowers hoola-hoops!).

The packers are currently sweeping through the house putting everything in their path in boxes and I'm looking forward to round two with Jim Davidson tomorrow.

So I'll be logging off from work shortly and will then be without broadband until BT can switch it on at the new place.

See you on the other side!
