Balloon

Welcome to the Varieties of the Balloon Hat Experience (courtesy of Metafilter). Enlightening, funny, moving, don’t you just wish you could do something like that (either the travelling, interacting, photography, or balloon shaping…I am in awe).

Sleep – I generally go to bed at midnight or 1 a.m. and get up 7:30 ish. 6 and a bit hours sleep most nights. I don’t dream often. Why am I telling you this? Just an excuse to add a link to SpasticReb… 😉

House Owners

Damn that was easy. A quick phone call, et voila! We have a house! 3 bed, semi-detached, with huge loft (which I am already eyeing for a conversion… quiet cul-de-sac, on the corner with a fair bit of land to the side (eyeing that for a possible extension!).

House buying is easy – you view one property on Saturday, drive around a few areas in the afternoon, have a BBQ on Sunday, view a house on Monday (today) lunchtime and strike it lucky!!

Reasonably confident, we are the first people to see it, and it hasn’t gone into the local paper yet. Had top weekend all in, didn’t touch my PC at all! So to everyone who emailed me – sorry! That’s why I didn’t reply to you (hope you enjoyed the Limp Bizkit concert!)

House hunting commences grand scale tomorrow, well not directly, we are going to take the time to check out a few of the local areas and see if we can find somewhere that suits us. We would quite like to stay where we are, but it’s kinda out of our price range, unless anyone wants to donate ..oh … £100k to our fund…??
