I hate them

fireworks I mean. We still have Guy Fawkes here and as we have a park just at the back of our house THey are going for about 5 days. Poor GUS he is drugged and not in his right mind or what passes for it. I spend the nights sitting in the middle bedroom by the computer with Gus who is covered by a blanket and trying to climb under my chair. WONDERFUL WAY TO SPEND AN EVENING. I also am reminded of the blasts during WW2, long ago I know, but still makes me shudder. We lived by the river THames and the guns were at the back of our garden, always knew when a raid was going to start and used to worry about my father who was at our hospital at night. Now to the good news I have sold my house and am moving to a cottage in my son's garden,no more lawns to cut, no more gardens to worry about only my size ones, the rent is baking !!!!! This has been talked about for ages but I didn't want to move but now I need to do so much work here and don't have enough money to finish it so away I go . My bucket list is becoming longer day by day. Fran, digging for bones???? It is wonderful to be able to wake up and not have to worry about the house. Sara keep it up you are on the home run now and things will get better. Hugs to all Bee who is jumping up and down with glee, well sort of.

Bee- My hat is off to you for the move. If our daughter and SIL lived close by I would like to do the same thing. We just read in today's paper that a condo unit that was started being built in 2008, then went bankrupt has been bought and will be finished. It is closer to where we are here, on the St. John's River. Not the ocean, but maybe something to think about. The yard, etc. is too much for us. With the cancer scare it gives me to serious thought.
Beautiful day here, we are taking the 4 legged children to the doggie park in 30 min.

Bee, how wonderful to have a cottage to go to on your son's property and that you can afford the rent...all you have to do is bake. Tell us more about it, where it is, how it is that he is able to have two buildings on one piece of property (here it would be difficult if not applied for and then it may not be granted). Is it far from your own home, now. And Gus, he will be going and will he approve of his new lodgings? I worry as well about downsizing. We have been here 26 years and my husband is a packrat...if I ever build another house, it will be without a basement and a special room attached to the garage that says: junk only.

Grant's section of land is quite large and everything is done according to our council as to permits etc. Not too far from here about 15 mins and Gus willl be in heaven. Grant is his best friend and to be able to see him everyday he will love it . He is very much a family dog and the GKids all make a fuss over him, Grant even takes him for a ride in his car. google 8 Hepburn Rd Glendene to see .

Bee, could you ask for anything more given the fact that there is no stopping the aging process and all that comes with it...downsizing is a dirty word ....hate it...just lightening the load is a better way to describe it. Gus will be in heaven from the sounds of it. You are one lucky woman.

Rosey, I am one very lucky woman and say thank you every day. I am walking on clouds these days ,just wish Harry was coming with us . We are so lucky our family have so many laughs together. I was handed a bucket list from number one son of the baking he wants as my rent. All his old favourites I used to bake when he was at home.
