I have a lot of complex analysis to offer on current world events, but most of it boils down to this classic sign:
In other news, we have a house! It's, er, odd. It's weatherboard, which will be a first for me, but it is large and light and has a massive covered deck at the back. Or, as I refer to it, my future tapdancing studio. It might be fabulous or we might be moving again in a year. I have an agreement that next house WILL be an Edwardian treasure. We move next week, I apologise in advance for the whining.

In other other news, HAPPY BIRTHDAY queerbychoice! I hope that this year is nothing like last year. May you be surrounded only by sane people and may all your plants thrive.

Happy birthday, too, to ellie_nor. I hope that all the present fairies are catching a cab to your place, too laden down to fly!

Congratulations~! The pic won't load for me, but yay for airy and light houses!

Thank you! We're only renting it, but I have an agreement that I can do what I like with the garden, so that will be fun at any rate. And if I hate it, it will be all the more incentive to save up to buy the sort of house I like!

Do you do gardening and stuff?

I've changed out the pic: I think I may have stuffed it up in the original. Not polite language, but pretty much what I have been shouting at the news all week. Some sailor somewhere is really missing his foul language.

I should be better, especially at work. We have Americans visiting the office this week: I am absolutely not allowed to talk, as our ad department have been raving bastards all month and I have spent the last week only able to refer to them as cocking cocks. My entire staff have promised to go along with me in the 'I have terrible laryngitis' plan.

Good luck with the move, lovely. I hope the new house is amazing, and there is no world in which having a tap dancing studio is a bad thing.

The world is in a bit of a mess, isn't it? With Tony fucking over Aus, and the craziness over here, it's hard to look forward and not despair.

That sign does say it all, doesn't it?
Good luck on the move.

It's sad that the sign is so relevant.

Congrats on the new house/studio!

You're moving house! (why yes I'm behind the times, we've just moved house and it took forever to get the internet connected). While unpacking I came across a spare set of your current house keys so I guess I should pop those in the post to you before they become irrelevant!

Congrats on the house!! I'm not sure what a weatherboard is. I'll have to go look. And moving sucks, so whine all you want.
