Well it’s now 00:22 and I’ve been tapping away on this ruddy keyboard for hours, tweaking our embryonic kennels website ready for launch day which looks like it could be 15th October 2013!

Although it seems like ages since we agreed a price for the kennels, it will only be 3 months and 3 days if we move in on the expected date. Our estate agent tells me that 12 weeks is average so we’re only slightly over.

Emotions at the moment are panic, fear, delirious excitement but, reassuringly, an overall feeling that this is the right thing to be doing as a family. We really can’t wait, although it does mean having to move a bit further away from friends and rellies. Although there will be some compromises ahead, I’m sure the upsides will more than compensate for them.

All we’re waiting for now is for the solicitors to stop arguing about pointless twaddle. A short phone call to the prospective buyer of our house sorted out an issue that’s eluded the solicitors for weeks. It really makes me wonder what they do for their money.

Trying out this Pachyderm WordPress theme. It’s not quite right as the poo we will be scooping is restricted to canine and feline, no plans for elephant, zebra or hippos yet! (Although Alpaca’s might be on the horizon in year or so)

That’s my lot for now. It’s way too late for creative writing
