But not for us.
For today Friday the 13th October 2017 we have sold our house.
Yes that bloody Millstone that was hung around our neck’s since April yes, April finally belongs to someone else!!!!
I mean okay we have not yet actually received the funds from the sale yet. No more dealing with shitty conveyancers!!!
Please excuse me while I do a little dance in celebration. It might even be the squirmy happy puppy dance. (Which I’ve not done since I left the office).
We can buy a car!!!!!
#1 Son also had an excellent day.
He received today’s REACH Star For doing his writing work without complaint and generally being awesome.
Yes I know the shirt is too small he insisted on wearing it and quite frankly I’m not sure I’m going to bother washing it before getting rid of it.
(Ok that’s a lie, but it was fun to consider however briefly 😂🤣)
Got to speak to his teacher today because our lovely J was unable to pick him up from school due to a previous appointment. And the lovely teacher confirmed that he has improved greatly, and she is very very pleased with him.
Yes we got our normal ice cream. Yes both children were a giant mess at the end of it. They had fun. I’ve even bought some very expensive oatmeal pouches to try and tempt TT into actually eating breakfast. Standby for the results on that one dear audience.
Oh and before I forget my wonderful boy and I had a conversation about Christmas. He was explaining to me how it was very important that J, her partner, and her two children, (and especially the baby) should have Christmas presents from us this year.
(It was hilarious that he referred to J’s partner as her dad because he knew him to be the baby’s dad. I did explain)
I forgot how literal a child’s view of the world can be.
But the best part of this conversation was the discussion about him giving the baby his toys and perhaps most importantly a previous favourite toy. He explained to me how he felt it was important that toys that were less favourite should go to other children.
No I’m not crying you’re crying. Or maybe someone is cutting onions in here. Just proves what a wonderful sweet boy he really is. And finally on the way home he asked to go to the park unfortunately his sister had other ideas (in the nappy area) so we played outside once we got home. Our lovely downstairs neighbour H said that we were able to use her grandson’s outside toys as and when.
So I managed to capture this:
They can be so gosh darned cute when they want.
