A silver lining?

A silver lining?

Aside from other clouds on the horizon, the last couple of days brought some cool news on the dwelling situation. A house we went to look at a week and a half ago is being refurbished, and we expressed a keen interest in taking out a lease at the end of the month.

Our future land lord has been busy as hell – obviously working on renovating the house – putting in heating, kitchen, shower, that kind of stuff. So it was great to finally get a hold of him and convince him that we really, really, really wanted the place. (Each time I spoke to him he’d say “So you really want the place?!”)

All things going well, he’ll visit us on Saturday morning with the papers to sign and the next chapter in our nomadic life style will begin.

Just as the above arrangements were being made, Fliss texted to tell me that she’d gotten this full time job she applied for. This is fantastic news – five long months she’s been looking for a full time gig and finally it’s worked out well.

Not only am I dead pleased for her, but it gives us a bit of a back up plan if events of today transpire for the worst! ;o)
