Updates

Hello again!

So the house selling continues, and we've had quite a few people come look at the place over the last month or so. They have all been nicer than my 'friend'*, in that if they have any terrible things to say about the house, they wait until after they leave to say them. Good for them.

* Holy crap I promise I'll let it go one day, but it looks like today is not that day.

Anyway, I'm gradually getting less anxious every time someone comes over - I figure it's a numbers game, so I don't have to work overtime trying to convince any one particular person. When the right person comes along, they'll buy it, and worrying about that won't help.

A guy came around last week and sounded really keen on the house, but I'm trying desperately not to hope too much, because I don't want to be disappointed if it falls through. He seems like a nice, straightforward guy, so if he wants it I'm sure we'll hear about it soon enough.

What else? We all had a hellish flu one for a little while there, but we're better now. The days have started getting longer again, and it's actually starting to get light in the mornings. I always forget how quickly it changes, one week you'll be driving to leikskoli in the dark, then all of a sudden it's light when you get up! Yay!

Vicki babysat for us on Saturday night so that Ross and I could go out for dinner and then drinks with his friend Oli. It was really nice to socialise a bit, except for the part where I got too excited and forgot how to space my drinks. So Sunday was fun, but lucky for me Ross got up early with the boys. Good times!

Oh yeah, Felix has started talking more, he now says 'nana' for banana, and 'up' when he wants to get up. Oh my gosh it's so much nicer than the screeching. He's also got the hang of the word 'no', which is funny. He's just so blunt and matter of fact - when I ask if I can have a kiss, he just looks at me deadpan and goes 'No.' It's a pretty aussie sounding no, too. Awesomely adorable.

Okay, I think that'll be all for now. Hope you are all well!

Good to hear that people are coming by and are interested. I hope that guy will buy, but you never know. Things will fall into place sooner or later, thats for sure though. Oh my, I would love to see Felix say no and Henry go yeah. Glad you guys are feeling better after the flu!! Much love to you four! xx
