Yes...this is ALL about me, and mine. Marvellously self indulgent, feel free to tell me how splendid I am, leave comments, nice ones please, I have little kids and teenagers who can do the rude stuff. I am a grandma, to the glorious Joshua, I'm allowed to look frazzled and weary, I earned it. The older I get, the more I see that hanging on and being patient is worth it! They ( whoever 'they' are) are so right when they say you never know what is around the corner, it isn't always an articulated truck! It is vital to make the time for making memories, friends are the greatest treasure, I love mine. I am rich!

One. More. Sleep.

And we're almost ready.
Much busy-ness, much yelling ( me) laughing and ignoring yelling ( everyone else)
Am excited for it to be tomorrow, more excited for it to be wednesday when the keys to this house will be on their way to Bridgette will she give us our deposit back when she sees how clean and shiny her stinky house is even though she says she is keeping our money and didn't care that we had to shovel dried on pooh and furry vomit when she gave us the keys landlady. Hooray.
I had to drag myself away from my new kitchen with it's rug and pretty things, it's brightness and many cupboards, I stood and looked and then looked again and had to tell myself that tomorrow I will live there.
I wish I could explain how it feels to walk around the house, with the soft, clean carpets, with the cosy feel and the honest to goodness homeliness of it all. I wish I could but I can't because as soon as I start to try and think hard enough about it, my head turns to flub, within seconds I am a fer....de..buh........awwwwwww.......um........lovely.
That's it, it's lovely. That's enough isn't it? Lovely.
Thankyou Lord.

I'm glad you'll be in your new house soon! Hopefully the landlady will find a heart and give you back your deposit, and if not at least you're in a better home!!

Yay for a clean place to be able to call home!!!

Your family has really been through soooo much since I've been reading your blog over the past few months. I'm not sure how you've stood it and lived to tell. I'm thrilled to pieces and pray that the new home is everything and more!

You really do deserve it!

I am so glad that you will be living in a real home soon. You deserve all of the happiness a beautiful home gives a person. Things are going to start looking up for you, I just know it. Much hugs and love from a world away (Arizona, US).
