- My real estate agent (oooh, don’t I sound grown up!) dropped the keys off at about 1 this afternoon. I am officially a home owner. Well, house owner, anyway. There’s a bunch to be done to make it a home – I had a little freak out about organising it all last night, but then I calmed down. At this point I think it’s appropriate to also thank Bek and Sooz for talking me down when I freaked out about the building inspection report, for no particular reason Sooz actually called me from way up north and gave me a healthy dose of perspective on what a house actually IS which I think will stand me in good stead.
- One of my colleagues drives a taxi as well as working for us. He started posting notes about his experiences to facebook, and he’s just graduated to a blog. Here it is. He’s bravely facing down the technology, which is not his friend, and hashing out his writing style. Some of the initial posts are a bit full on, but definitely worth the read. I think I am perfectly safe in saying that he is a Top Bloke™. Check him out.
- Library Girl sent me a book. I got it today, and I’d completely forgotten it was on its way. What a lovely surprise! Wrapped with a ricrac ribbon (the BEST kind) and a postcard from picadilly to use as a bookmark. I started it at lunch and smeared beetroot all over the first page, which is a bit fitting considering the gruesome subject matter – and I didn’t get any on my white shirt! That may be a first.
- Sara memed me! And I’ll get around to it. Eventually. Is it bad that I can’t think of ten things?
