Guilty Update

OK forced to update my blog and tidy up a few things since I may get an influx of visitors due to the 'accursed black box'. Actually its quite a neat little widget that redirects you to blogs of others who've answered various questions in a vaguely similar manner to you. It can be seen in my previous post.

Um this is rare for me actually as I'm writing a blog entry while I'm at work, which is somethign Iwouldn't normally do. But since I work from home and K & Z are doing another stop on their farewell tour of East Anglia and I can't bug them I'm doing thsi instead. And from a different computer so I'm not wasting work resources!

The house is in various states of 'packed'. The front room looks a little bare, my office is a tip and Z's usually calm haven of a nursery is now a treacherous assault course design to bruise shins whenever a nappy change is required. To the observant among you this means we have now sold and bought houses and we should be moving in a few short days (Monday to be precise). Obviously this is all still dependent on numerous things solicitors need to do (not least actually exchanging bloody contracts!). Having been badgered by both sides of our chain ("We're ready what's the hold up?", "We need to move before our holiday") Monday's exchange day descended into farce. We'd signed and returned ours a week ago and the first snafu was our buyers ("holiday") not having signed their forms and having to rush into their solicitor's to sort it out. Then it turns out the sellers ("hold up?") hadn't done theirs either!

Our solicitor assures me everything is all set for Monday so removals have been booked and my 2 new company car test drives moved to a new city.

I have decided against a cat picture (always a favourite with the 'net it seems) so hopefully any new visitors won't mind too much. Instead you'll have to imagine a funny cat picture you saw somewhere else.

Hi, Leigh. Spotted you at The Trouser Press.
Yeah, kinda odd, innit?

Definitely! And because there seems to be so few users of black box at the moment weirdly incestuous! It's all circular references and all that.

Hmmm. Thinks hard trying to imagine cat picture :)

I didn't, believe it or not, arrive here directly via the widget. Certainly indirectly though, thanks to your arrival at my place via the same.

Nice place you've got here - and now I'm going to head for leigh-with-typewriter's blog :)
