Moving On

Postby Rayge » 02 Mar 2019, 16:33

As some of you may know, ms thang and I bought a house in the middle of January in a town 40 miles from here. Finally – after loads of frustration and delays – the heating and hot water systems have been installed, and the practical process of redecorating, recarpeting and so on, that has to be done before we could move the furniture, is about to begin. This means I am going to have to spend increasingly large chunks of time over there, possibly without internet access, and certainly without a lot of time for having fun on the interwebz, so I will be away from here most of the time, although I'll try to update my photo thread in My Way, and vote in the cups, when I can.
So, just a heads up: not flouncing, or anything like, but probably not around very much for a few months.

Good luck! House buying is totally time consuming. Hope it all works out well!

Best of luck on your project. Glad you'll be able to continue posting your photos occasionally. It's become a regular BCB stop for me.

Good luck Ray. Hope it all goes to plan, and doesn't stress you both out too much. Very wise getting it all done before you move in.

Great news. Hope you are both very happy.
Where you moving to?
I've been talking about writing a book - 25 years of TEFL - for a few years now. I've got it in me.

Good luck Ray. It always brings a tear to the eye to see someone finally grow up, buy their first house and settle down. You kids have fun.

I trust the new gaff has a similarly fabulous garden? Best of luck with it all, and make sure your papers are in order for border control. X

About a third of the size, rectangular, and a decided challenge - full of rubbish, overgrown grass - loads of remedial work required this summer, just a large phalanx of containers (including about a dozen trees in barrels) and what I can grow in the greenhouse, if I can get it together in time (although it is, at least, flat). But I do get a new shed.
