Well, advice from mortgage advisor in the first instance seems to be positive. Will be viewing four properties in various locations in and around Milton Keynes tomorrow, so will have to see how that goes.

If it all works out anyway! Would be a real godsend to get everything sorted out quickly! Especially if we can get everything in order leaving us a month or two to actually make the move.

We are going to postpone our Christmas Eve at my sister's house. Several people there are passing a virus back and forth. Over the weekend five people had it. It is down to two today, but Melissa was better and got it again. Robin did not have, does now. We don't want it here.

Thanks ladies.. I was just randomly venting. pfft Cilla your friendship is the best gift I have.
Because seriously we DO have the most important things in life.

And it's a good incentive to start earlier next year. We also have a car payment this year and won't next year. You know it's just life.

And while a bit frustrating I'm thankful that I HAVE a job that starts back up on the 6th. So many people don't and I can't imagine if they were being jerked around and it being their only source of income and/or having littles too. My kid is 19 she's perfectly fine with waiting. Besides the extra time might allow her dad to finish a model he got for her

The celling up stairs is high. There is not a celling, just the roof beams. If I hang them there they would not be able to reach them. Only two cat are allowed to go up there. They would be safe up there.

It was 16 degrees outside when I got up at 6:30. I think Santa brought the cold with him from the North Pole and forgot to take it with him when he left! Brrrrrrr!

Santa was very good to us. I got 3 very funny cat books and my favorite gift - a Tribble! Been wanting one for years! Yes, as we get older sometimes our wants get simpler and we also regress!

Turkey dinner has been eaten and cleared away, fire in the fireplace and lights going on the tree. It's been a very good Christmas!

I also got a new leather cover for my Nook, several cartoon cat books and Stormfly, a dragon defender of Berk!? I think one of the kids said this comes from the movie How to Train a Dragon? Haven't seen it, but the little figure is sort of cute.

I had to go to work today. When I got to the office, everyone else who was scheduled for today was standing/sitting around outside. It appeared that the manager on duty had not been given the code to turn off the alarm. It took 2 hours to get a manager on the phone who knew the code. We will get paid for the time we were waiting. As might be expected, we didn't get a lot of calls, although I did get a call from a travel agent, which surprised me. She was surprised, too (and a little embarrassed), as she had forgotten to call in the deposit when she booked the package (4 rooms at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa). We got 4 new rooms for her, but they were the next price level up.

All the gifts I gave my friends were received with great rejoicing. That's the best part of gift-time: watching other people open what I got for them.

That was not a pleasant way to spend Christmas. At least you weren't standing outside in snow or freezing weather! You say the hotel rooms are the next price up. I hope the person renting the rooms is not stuck with that price increase, since it sounds like it was the travel agent's fault!

Santa was so good to us. I think my favorite gift is a watercolor painting our son's girlfriend made and framed for us of our old house. It brought tears to my eyes and still does. Such a thoughtful gift!

Priscilla, I hope the travel agent will do the right thing and make up the difference. She did admit that she had let the due date slip by. She works for a national agency, and she calls on a re3corded line (ours is recorded, too); I'm pretty sure she'll be hearing about this, and not only from the customer.

My housemate has been wanting to go on ancestry.Com for years, but it's pricey. I couldn't get her a year or even six months, but I got her a gift card to use toward a subscription. Since she told several people that was what she wanted. I hope others paid attention. She was almost in tears when she opened the card.

I got my cat a cricket that chirps when moved. She played with it for about a minute, and now it only chirps when I roll over it with the wheelchair. Cats are so fickle.

Thank you everyone for sharing and glad you had a joyous holiday.

I am pasting what I posted over at the KT for those who don't go to the Clan Fiend thread because I don't have the emotional energy to type it again or differently.

The boys and I spent the last 5 days with my mom. She has her good and bad days. Even so, she is so changed it is hard to see. While there the boys father called and I answered the phone. I didn't know it was him. It was quite awkward because he has never tried to talk to me concerning our sons. He called to talk to my mom. I had to hold my tongue because I won't drag my sons into in anything but it was hard. He is friends with my mom on facebook and he just finished a mini vacation in Tesco, Mexico visiting the pyramids there with two female friends. I so wanted to say, "Why don't you share some of that money with your sons who haven't had a vacation in over 8 years" but I didn't. I had to give her morphine the last two days we were there because the pain was so bad. She hates being on morphine but I told her it is better than the intolerable pain. She didn't disagree. The doctors gave her till March. I hope we have that much time. She barely eats. Boaz had a hard time sleeping while we were there so I was quite sleep deprived by the time I left. I worry about both of them for different reasons. Boaz reacts with outburst not related to the subject and Micah goes internal. It seems both my boys refuse to talk for different reasons. Thank you everyone for "reading".

I was just out on the deck taking pictures of the sunrise and a coyote went trotting by below me. It was pretty large and not in very good shape - no fur on its tail. I'm very glad our cats never go outside! I did take a picture but it was near the end of the lawn so I don't know how it will come out.

We took down the outside decorations this morning. We might have a storm later in the week and even though it was very cold out at least there is currently no snow on the ground to try and dig things out of. The indoor stuff can wait for the weekend.

Tonight will be our usual quiet time. I have steaks and potatoes to cook. I doubt if I will stay up past 9:30. The New Year will arrive, whether I watch it or not!

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope next year will have many of our wishes come true!

Happy New Year everyone! Our decorations come down on the 6th, that's when we throw out the tree too. It's already shedding needles like crazy. If it's anything like the tree we had last year, I'll still be vacuuming needles in July! They manage to hide in the oddest of places.
