Its funny, I get to Monday, and it feels like the week ahead is soooo long... and then BOOM! Its Friday - the week has whizzed past in a blurr and I still haven't achieved, all I'd hoped to achieve!!!
Miss M has a friend staying over, and we're off to the Show today, to meet with one of H-Man's friends! We had an absolutely ball last year - and are really looking forward to it again today! The weather is divine! The sunny is out in full, a little puff of wind and forecast temps of 22C. Nice!
On a completely different note -
I just sold my car, and when our house sells, I'll buy a 7 seater. Anyway, during the sale process, many people asked, why I was selling my car. I'd say, "because I'm after a 7 seater - we have 2 kids, another one on the way - and we are forever couriering other kiddies around the place as well!"
Immediately after mentioning "another one on the way" - people ALWAYS look at my stomach!!! I notice their glance, and add "That's just fat - we're adopting a child"!!! I love it! They never know what to say!!! I shouldn't do it really - but its just so entertaining!
I'm STILL UBER excited about the prospect of seeing Mini by Christmas!!!
**EDIT:* A couple of my esteemed readers have asked about the house. Had considerable interest, but no-one interested enough to put in an offer.... YET! Still have regular opens, and now that it's listed "for a price" I feel that we're only getting "serious" buyers through.... all the nosey neighbours have been through! After two weeks "on the market"... the agent asked us to drop the price!!! HA! Good on ya?!!! It wasn't well received here, and we said we'd revisit that thought after at least another month. Apparently, that's "the industry standard" to ask the vendor to drop after two weeks!!!! Unbelievable. Our market here has been excellent for about 2-3 years. Houses selling within 4-6 weeks on the market, many on the first open. In the last 6 months, things have started to slow - the "medium" is currently about 90 days on the market. Mr T told our agent, that ALL Agents have had it too easy too long.... now they actually have to work for their money!!! Then I added insult to injury, by adding "I'll drop my price if you'll drop yours!"... I was told, that wouldn't happen!!! I reckon, if I'm paying them multiple thousands of dollars... they can darn well earn it! We have a great house. (Everyone that has come through, loves it... we just need someone to love it, that has $$$!)
