Looking forward to Tuesday

"Just another manic Monday, wish it were Sunday...." I'm sure the words go something like that. LOL

On the house front. Still no news!! It's been a long time now and our Estate Agent is doing her favorite thing. Avoidance!!! Not answering phones, nadda. Let's cross some fingers for some news either way tomorrow. Right now I couldn't care if the buyers get the bond or not, right now I couldn't care about the fallout due to the buyers already having made alterations. Okay, I could but seriousley it shouldn't be our problem. Come the end of the week, we will be doing what we need to do to start on our path to financial freedom.

On the fence front. Darling hubby came home at midday and cleared what debris (grass + weeds) from underneath the fence that he could. He got working on the house alarm system and discovering which panic buttons work and which don't. Shortly, I will be wearing one around my neck during the day. I have now accepted that that is how it is meant to be. We now have the correct Company boards outside so that there is no confusion as to where they are meant to go.

Elaine, if only your idea would be a deterant. Sadly, it would be an invitation. If they know you have firearms on the property - they either come ready armed (sadly, either way they do) or they will break in just to try and get the guns/weapons.

The headless chicken is a 50/50 issue. Either it waltzed onto the property and the dogs did kill it - I for one have a hard time believing that they did, as there was not enough chaos, mayhem and blood to indicate that is what happened. It does look like it was just thrown over the fence and landed where it did. But I'll comfort myself with the 50/50 either way.

With all the chaos today there are no beads in the kiln (sad face). The good news is my fresh bottle of oxygen arrived which means I can get to melting boro again soon. But I'm going to stick to soft for a couple of days still. I need to finish up a project and well, I just need some PPP in soft. LOL

Have a good week guys and girls!!

What a bother Mich! All that to contend with AND no torching!!! Grrrrr.

I think you need to move to New Zealand ;o)

Seriously though, I have friends that moved out here from SA about 8 years ago & they love it. Personally I always said I didn't know how they could stand the cold - but theyassured me the lifestyle change was worth it.

Oh, Mich, I'm sorry to hear this. I do hope you had some torching time yesterday, just to get your mind off everything else! I'll be thinking about you guys.
