Everyone's a critic

We had potential letting agents round today in preparation for renting out the flat. It's odd having someone coming and casting a critical eye over your home.

Having spent so much time working on the flat in the last few weeks I was non-plussed to say the least when one of them asked if we could redecorate because some of the walls have colour on them! I know that people want a 'blank canvass', but it's not as though we've let Kandinsky loose with a troop of 3 year olds and the annual output of Dulux.

It's weird to think about other people living here, but realistically we would have been moving on at some point anyway.

Give it up

I'm watching the 10 o'clock news and I can't get over the Hillary Clinton supporters who are protesting and saying that they will vote for John McCain. Are these people Democrats or not? Hillary lost, and she knew the risks of not playing the nicey nicey game. Her so called supporters should get over it and get behind Obama.

Feeling the pulse

It's the turn of the larder today. Honestly, I don't know how I've managed to acquire so many types of beans and pulses. Looks like we're in for windy few weeks as we eat them up!

Farewell faithful old friends

Continuing the clearout prior to the big move, today got to the wardrobe. Known for my Imelda Marcos-like shoe fetish I was a big brave girl and sent 6 pairs to the charity shop. Handbags didn't escape either and a fair few of them followed the shoes. So it's goodbye and thank you to:
  • Strappy wedge sandals, as worn to Buck House
  • Ruby slippers!
  • Dutch slingbacks
  • Brown suede mules
  • Miffy rucksack
  • Toystory alien and Bagpuss rucksacks

Hopefully they will find new homes.

The 1st post..

So this is my 1st post.

I've set up this blog to record the ups and downs of our intended move to New Zealand. Once we're there hopefully people will use it to keep up with how we are getting on.

I chose the black background for my blog as it saves energy when the computer displays it. There is a version of Google that does this too:
