Under Offer

We have been busy for the last few weeks decluttering the house before we dared call the estate agents in. But that hard work has paid off. The estate agent came on Monday, the first viewing was on Saturday and we had an offer the following Monday. I am very pleased but slightly apprehensive about where we end up next. A doesn't want to look until he knows what is happening with his job. The uncertainty is killing me. In the mean time, if you have a good suggestion as to where to live for easy access to south Cambridge ( near Addenbrookes ), please let me know.

Second installment at Banana Frog

I made another appearance at Banana Frog yesterday with a couple of safari layouts. I love their Greenwich Park stamp set, especially that cute deer.

First drive experience

We gave J a driving experience at Rockingham for his 13th birthday present but because they were booked up, he didn't get to do it till last weekend. He got to drive a Mini Cooper S around the roads on the Rockingham estate for 45 minutes. Well, not 45 minutes all in one go. There were 2 others, 16 year olds in the car. They took turns and did 15 minutes of left turns, 15 minutes of right turns followed by 15 minutes of parking. He had a brilliant time...I think all those driving games on the XBox helped. I was quite amazed that he managed pull away without stalling. At the end of the experience they got given a score sheet and he got a B for everything except for the use of rear view mirror for which he got a C.
First, he just had to pose for the official photographer but I sneaked this in.
Just to prove that he drove. He indicated.
and he turned left.
