Tomorrow is the BIG day!
Not only will we see whether the UK will get a new government and Prime Minister, but it’s also the day Philip and I say “goodbye” to rented accommodation and “hello” to a 25 year mortgage. We must be mad!
As we will have such a long, busy day ahead of us tomorrow, we offered Emma, our daughter, the option of skipping school and helping us move instead. “Fancy a day off school tomorrow to help us move, Emma” says Philip.
“No chance, I don’t want to miss German, plus I will just get in your way” replies Emma!
OMG, when did she grow-up and get all sensible and responsible? At her age I was wagging school at any opportunity (I never went to geography for 3 months!). Philip was just dumb-struck by her response. I think we both expected her to say yes – parents are supposed to know their kids, aren’t they?!
It seems that change is definitely in the air, and I for one can’t wait. Tomorrow is the start of a new adventure – bring it on!
After a month of having the domain for this blog set up by Philip, I have finally got around to using it (much to Philip’s amusement). My reasons for resisting until now – too busy at work and too busy planning a house-move (not to mention too scared, as I’ve never done this blogging thing before!)
It’s chaos in our house at the moment; packing boxes everywhere. We move on Friday into our new house, affectionately named CrunchBang Towers by Fabsh of Linux Outlaws during an interview with Philip and I last month. Philip is already panicking about broadband being switched off before he backs up the servers, and has grand plans for wirelessly networking our new house with Ethernet-over-Power (Thanks for the tip, Daviey!) We’ve not even moved in yet and he wants to start drilling holes in walls – yikes!
We have also just returned from a fantastic weekend attending OggCamp 2010 held in Liverpool – a dedicated blog post will follow shortly.
That’s all for now folks! More packing to do.
