Max said...

Fantastic news about the house - I think I would've been panicking a bit in that situation - you must be so relieved. There'll be lots of frantic packing going on for you over the next couple of weeks and lots to think about.
Your happy little bear is obviously good at multi-tasking - taking home the tree, delivering a card and giving a birdie friend a lift all at the same time! Must be a woman I reckon LOL!

Oh Shell - how did I miss your good news.

Just been down to pay a cheque into the bank and passed an estate agent and thought of you.

Realised I hadn't caught up since your "viewing" and thought .. .. must check.. and hey .. .. the world is coming good for you.

Great news.

Love Jules xx
