Election Fever

I got a phone call last night, the estate agents where we've put an offer in for a house yesterday morning, head office this time, they wanted know if we had any feed back. I was actually quite calm, we're getting used to dealing with them now, we just expect the unexpected and laugh at their own stupidity!

Anyway, we watched a TV Election Special, featuring the three main party leaders. We don't usually watch this kind of thing but thought it might be a laugh seeing the three of them in the same room taking questions, however, Tony wasn't up for it, chicken, so they were out one at a time instead. I think out of the three of them Charles Kennedy came out best with Michael Howard looking as slippery and slimy as ever and Tony Blair looking like he really didn't want the hassle of being Prime Minister anymore.

An amazing point in the show was a question to Tony about Doctors Surgeries, having to book an appointment on the same day or in some cases within 48 hours. Now we knew about this one as we now have to make an appointment on the same day instead of making it in a weeks time or so to get a suitable time. What we didn't know was that this was all to do with government targets and even more astonishingly, Mr Blair didn't know this was going on either! Must be too busy rehearsing his 'why we went to war' speech to notice anything else going on around him.

So to sum up, we have Michael who's answer to any question starts "what I actually said was...." and then doesn't answer the question. We've got Tony who answers any question but we all know that anything he says will be out of the window if he gets back in. Then we've got Charlie boy, knowing that this time around the government are sitting ducks and the opposition still haven't found the plot since they lost power, giving them the most realistic chance of winning that they've ever had. So, they decide to announce that they'll put taxes up, which is always a winner on polling day!

She's sitting at the table with her gourmet coffee.
Her son is on the cover of the Wheaties box.
Her daughter is on the cover of Business Week.
Her boyfriend is on the cover of Playgirl.
And her husband is on the back of the milk carton.

"Cash, check or charge?" I asked, after folding items the woman wished to purchase. As she fumbled for her wallet I noticed a remote control for a television set in her purse. "So, do you always carry your TV remote?" I asked. "No," she replied, "
but my husband refused to come shopping with me, so I figured this was the most legal evil thing I could do to him."

I know I'm not going to understand women. I'll never understand how you can take boiling hot wax, pour it onto your upper thigh, rip the hair out by the root,
and still be afraid of a spider.

While attending a Marriage Seminar dealing with communication, Tom and his wife Grace listened to the instructor, "It is essential that husbands and wives know the things
that are important to each other." He addressed the man, "Can you describe your wife's favorite flower?" Tom leaned over, touched his wife's arm gently and whispered, "It's Selfraising, isn't it?

The rest of the story gets rather ugly, so I'll stop right here.

A man walks into a pharmacy and wanders up and down the aisles. The sales girl notices him and asks him if she can help him. He answers that he is looking for a box of tampons for his wife. She directs him down the correct aisle. A few minutes later, he deposits a huge bag of cotton balls and a ball of string on the counter. She says, confused, "Sir, I thought you were looking for some tampons for your wife? He answers, " You see, it's like this, yesterday, I sent my wife to the store to get me a carton of cigarettes, and she came back with a tin of tobacco and some rolling papers; cause it's sooooooooooo much cheaper. So, I figure if I have to roll my own ........... so does she.

(Of course . . . I figure this guy is the one on the milk carton! :-)

A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a word. An earlier discussion had led to an argument and neither of them wanted to concede their position. As they passed a barnyard of mules, goats, and pigs, the husband asked sarcastically, "Relatives of yours?" "Yep," the wife replied, "in-laws."

A husband read an article to his wife about how many words women use a day... 30,000 to a man's 15,000. The wife replied, "The reason has to be because we have to repeat everything to men...The husband then turned to his wife and asked, "What?"

A man said to his wife one day, "I don't know how you can be so stupid and so beautiful all at the same time. " The wife responded, "Allow me to explain. God made
me beautiful so you would be attracted to me; God made me stupid so I would be attracted to you!

A man and his wife were having an argument about who should brew the coffee
each morning. The wife said, "You should do it, because you get up first, and then we don't have to wait as long to get our coffee." The husband said, " You are in charge of cooking around here and you should do it, because that is your job, and I can just wait for my coffee." Wife replies, "No, you should do it, and besides, it is in the Bible that the man should do the coffee." Husband replies, "I can't believe that, show me." So she fetched the Bible, and opened the New Testament and showed him at the top of several pages, that it indeed says..........

Make Me an Offer

We went off to see another house last night and I get the feeling that Debbie thought that this was the one before we even set foot inside. It's got everything we want including a decent sized dining room and a large beautiful garden so the cats would be able go out and sample some fresh air and the dogs would be able to tire themselves out racing up and down.

Back home, over a nice glass of wine, we decided that despite saying we wouldn't try to put an offer on any house that we go to see until we've got one on ours, on this occasion I think we'd be daft not to. Even if we do end up loosing out, at least we'll know we did everything we could to get our hands on it.

A new 'for sale' sign was nailed to the side of our house yesterday and we got an automatic email alert from our estate agent with a new house that has just come on the market that we might be interested in ...... ours! Lmao! At least we know it's now listed on the net

Surprise Visit

We were really looking forward to doing nothing last night but fate was against us, the pet cupboard was bare, only enough food for the dogs and the cats had to make do with biscuits. Misty gave me that look, the one that says, "this has been noted, I am not impressed". So off we went to get some shopping in and also called in at the takeaway for a burger as there was no chance of cooking tea, we simply couldn't be arsed!

Getting home, we spotted Dad and my Brother outside our house about to post the phone charger they'd borrowed, I pipped the horn to get there attention and we all went inside. Dad wanted to go on the computer to get some retirement figures which we duly found and printed out for him. After a beer and a natter they went off home and left us to warm up our burger and chips, which aren't usually any good from the microwave but on this occasion were still pretty tasty.

I'd managed to set up a viewing of the house we saw yesterday and thought nothing of the fact that it took the lady all afternoon to get back to me with a time to go round. When we checked our phone last night, we were quite surprised to have a message waiting for us that went along the lines of, "Hello, this is the lady from the estate agent, we've got a couple that want to come and view your house, could you please give me a call back". Awww bless, the lady at the estate agent had rung us instead of the vendor!

Lurking With Intent

We spotted another house in one of our chosen areas yesterday so popped out after tea for a drive just to see what it was like. It's a funny feeling being parked up outside someone's house having a good look round, people walking past give you the old 'what are you up to' look. I'd love to say we were private detectives on a stake-out

Anyway, we left before we got reported for lurking with intent. The area was really quiet and the house looked very nice from the outside so I'll be trying to arrange a viewing today.

Our new estate agent has been out today to take the photos for the brochure, our house should be flaunting itself on the net before the day is out and appear in the local press by the weekend.

Getting your own back!!

To my dear wife

You will surely understand that I have certain needs that you with your 54 years can no longer supply. I am very happy with you an I value you as a good wife. Therefore after reading this fax, I hope that you will not wrongly interpret the fact that I will be spending the evening with my 18 year old secretary at the Comfort Inn Hotel. Please don't be perturbed I shall be back home before midnight.

When the man came home, he found the following letter on the dining room

I received your fax and thank you for your honesty. I would like to take this opportunity to remind you that you are also 54 years old. At the same time I would like to inform you that while you read this, I will be at the Hotel Fiesta with Michael my tennis coach, who like your secretary, is also 18 years old. As a successful businessman and with your excellent knowledge of maths, you will understand that we are in the same situation,although with one small difference.

Eighteen goes into 54 a lot more times than 54 goes into 18 therefore I will not be back before lunchtime tomorrow.

The Price of 20:20 Vision

We went to my Grandma's, Sister's, Daughter's, Daughter's engagement party on Saturday night, held at Sheffield Hallam University, a nice place but does have three drawbacks. Firstly, it's in Sheffield and it took fourteen laps round the one way system to find a route to the car park. Secondly, they have no draught beer, must be a student thing, my brother did demonstrate downing a bacardi breezer in one with the aid of a straw which you can't really do with a pint. Thirdly, it's a no smoking building so we were among the constant stream of people nipping outside for a puff in the cold night air and ended up having to buy a big issue. Still, we had a great night out and the pork butties were lovely.

With Debbie feeling slightly worse for wear, we made it to Adsa in time for a big breakfast before going to have our eyes tested. My eyes have got very slightly worse, not warranting a changes of glasses but the ones I've got now are ready for retirement. Debbie's eyes are the same but the optician suggested she wear them more often, when asked if more often meant all the time, the optician replied yes, so why not just say wear them all the time. Anyway, we picked out a couple of funky frames, added on the cost of the lenses, the react to light coating, the anti-glare coating and sat down for the bill. We headed off nearly four hundred quid worse off!

We had to dash off to make an appointment to view a house which is just in the next village to ours, a quiet place out of the way which is what we are really after. The house was lovely, needed a little bit of work but we were taken with the generous sized garden and conservatory. The house was quite a few feet higher than the road so the view from the living room and bedroom windows was just fields. It was very nice but we weren't very enthusiastic about it, probably because we've been here before and can't do anything until we've got an offer on ours, which should be back on the market in the next day to two.

Back at ranch we were back on the net looking for more houses but with so many quite local but in areas we don't really know, we've decided to narrow the search down to four villages, all a stones throw from here. We've now got details of houses coming through the post, by email and by text message so if the house of our dreams does come on the market, we won't miss it.

Grandma we Love you!

Ive been put on some antibiotics by the doctor and they have made me very sick indeed, so yesterday I had to come home from work as I was throwing up propper bad, I have now stopped taking them and heyho the sicky feeling has gone away...yippee....

The estate agents have been this morning and our house should be back on the market this week plus these will do every advertising they can even going through the best internet site ie: right move as well as their own site.

We are going to view a house tomorrow and its just were we want it to be, in the right location and having a very big garden etc....

This morning we have been doing a bit of Grandma sitting, not actually sitting on keeping her comphy and having lunch with her which was fish and chips which she insisted on paying for but we was not having any of it and when she asked later if she had given us the money we just agreed......what ickle liars we

She is getting very confussed at the mo and was telling Paulie about some people being in her bedroom and she was ready for them with her sticks at the side of her bed, all Paulie could picture was Grandma waving her sticks about and Grandad appearing as Obe 1 saying, Use the force

When it was time to leave she made every excuse known for us not to go, have another brew, would you like a biccie, are you sure you have to go, are you sure you dont want anything to eat or a I made her one and pretended we had drunk ours in the kitchen...awwww bless....

Time to get on with some more jobs, its a lovely day outside....


Shake it Baby!!

Its the Weekend, so shake your thinggg.....

Mindless TV Entertainment

Crunchie time is here again, no rest for us though, it looks like it's going to be a non-stop weekend starting tonight with yet more hoovering, mopping, dusting, wiping and tidying ready for the first valuation visit early tomorrow morning. I don't know what it is with our house, we can spend hours and hours on it, then the next day it all needs to be done again, sheesh, maybe that's just normal

We missed most of Hell's Kitchen last night, we've been watching it all week and it's been interesting to see Mr Nice Guy, Gary Rhodes, show us his evil side Coming up this weekend is a new show, Celebrity Wrestling which looks like it could be fun, Celebes knocking seven bells out of each other.....fantastic idea!

And finally.....

I'll be getting stick from Debbie for mentioning this, but love it or loathe it, Big Brother 6 will be hitting our screens on Friday 27 May. We've got a love/hate relationship with this program, I love it and Debbie hates it! Anyway, as in previous years, I'll be checking out the updates at Digital Spy, then it doesn't matter if I loose the fight over the remote control

Changing Rooms

I think we did quite well last night, after tea, despite feeling like doing absolutely nothing we did get the bedroom changed round and got all the bits and pieces we keep accumulating stored away upstairs. Debbie did have a flipper though, just because I'd gone to move the wardrobe and backed into the bookshelf, bringing the whole lot crashing down with books and cd's thrown all over the place! We got there in the end though and the room looks much bigger without all the clutter. As for the top bedroom, well, we'll just have to promote that as a walk-in wardrobe come storeroom with a bed in the middle

We've noticed the trailers on TV recently for Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, neither of us ever watched the TV series but it does look like a good laugh this one and we both love anything with Bill Nighy in it. Will we find the time to go and see it on the big screen though? Who knows, usually, by the time we've found a free time slot to go and see a film, it's already out on DVD!

All Hands To The Pump Again

We went to view a house yesterday in the same village, it was lovely but only about the same size as we have now and with garages being rented on a separate piece of land we don't think it's the one for us. We'll keep on looking while we wait to get ours back on the market again.

With the first valuation fella coming out on Saturday morning, it's all hands to the pump again after a very short break from keeping the place in show house condition. It amazes me how so much stuff accumulates everywhere in such a short space of time, especially in the kitchen. I think it's time we sorted out the kitchen cupboards, they're all full to bursting with even more stuff piled on top. The one under the sink is the worst, fourteen different brands of kitchen cleaner, all half empty

Tonight we'll be putting new curtains up in the bedroom to match the ones in the living room, then we're going to change the whole bedroom around, moving absolutely everything, all under supervision of Lucy & Lolly, who'll be making sure that anything that falls on the floor is scattered evenly around the house!


Tuesday, April 19, 2005


I made a few phone calls yesterday and we've now got three estate agents coming out to value our house over the next couple of weeks, so a week on Saturday we should be back on the market again and hopefully with a little more luck. The old 'for sale' has gone, not collected by the old estate agent but pinched overnight by kids lmao! Debbie saw it across the road on her way to work yesterday so I called the estate agents and told them where they could find it if they wanted it back.

We'll have to get some pictures of Lolly this weekend, he's getting bigger than Lucy now and so much stronger. They were both playing tug-o-war with a toy last night and Lucy jumped in her bed for extra traction but even on the laminate floor, Lolly still managed to drag Lucy and the bed across the kitchen floor

The weather couldn't be any different from yesterday, heavy rain has been replaced by bright sunshine and we've had to scrape the cars for the first time in quite a while. The daffodils are dying away now and being replaced by tulips, it won't be long now before summer arrives :-)

In The Clear

We went over to see Dad on Sunday, he's doing ok but is due to have some tests done on his heart and possibly a minor operation soon. He's got so much going on at the moment, battling with his own illness and looking out for Grandma who's not too cleaver these days, I hope he's able to take retirement soon, at least that will be one less thing for him to worry about.

Having calmed down a little after doing battle with the estate agent last week, I've been checking the wording of the contract and it appears that we are actually in the clear as long as we don't sell to the one person that did come to view the house and said they weren't interested. So we'll be getting at least four people out to value the house over the next week or so and asking loads of questions before committing to anyone.

We've still got loads of pictures to post from our visit to Woburn Safari Park on Saturday, with nearly six hundred to choose from, we'll try and narrow it down to just a couple each day this week

Happy Days!

After all the hassell with the estate agents, it was nice to come home friday from work and find Paulie had done all the tidying up, even put the washing machine on and was in mid flow of making our evening meal...what a lucky girl I am....thank you Paulie

Friday nite we just had a chill with a well deserved G&T and we was up with the birds Saturday morning.

We decided to go to Woburn Safari Park and boy was it worth the journey, we set off nice and early and we always take a picnic with us and most important a flask of very strong coffee that nearly blows Paulies socks

The park was very big and even though it was busy you did not feel rushed or penned in by other cars, the tigers were allowed to rome in their own enclosure and gave us a right treat, next came the black bears and the canaidian timber wolves and last the lions, it was just fantastic....

We watched the sea lion show and we could have sat there all day watching these wonderful pups swimming like angels...

We went to see the monkeys, Paulie loves them, where as Im not too keen and panic if one comes near me.

After lunch it was time to do the Safari track again and it was even better then the first time around, we must have picked the right moment as all the other visitors were stuffing their faces on very expensive food from the resturants.

The tigers were more active and we even got some piccies of the wolves, the lions were all chillin after stuffing their faces, we even rode through the moneys which is a no no at Knowsley as they tear your car to bits, these ones at Woburn never come near any of the cars that are visiting them....much to my releif.....

On the way out of the park we spotted Harlequin ducks and Paulie managed to get some good piccies of them, all in all it was a Fantastic day and we will be visiting again soon....

Time to get another coffee.....

Till next time

Our Snotty Former Estate Agent

We had a letter through the post yesterday from our former estate agent, acknowledging that our house had been taken off the market but also warning us not nut put the house on the market with any other estate agent. I thought this might be coming given how unhelpful and snotty they've been with us but I did have to laugh where it goes on about them wanting their share if we were to sell to any of their leads and listed the one person they've sent in five weeks lmao!

So, where do we go from here, after all it is they who suggested taking the house off the market rather than try and be helpfull, they refused point blank to meet us even in their own office to discuss our concerns. If they had shown any kind of professionalism we would still be on the market with them now. We'll have to consider our options over the weekend but with our holiday coming up soon plus the general election, which I'm sure is holding back the housing market, we might actually be better waiting a few weeks.

Anyway, enough of the doom and gloom, Debbie had a great day yesterday at work with everyone sporting something pink for her colleagues last day. Arriving home, she had two hair band thingys in, not sure what the proper name is for them but one was pink and one was lilac, very fetching and I had to grab the camera If I ask nicely, she might let me post one of them here

The week is almost over, it's crrrrrunchie time and despite everything, we've still got that Friday feeling!

It's All In The Spelling

Since starting her new job Debbie's been shown the ropes by the lady who is leaving to have a baby, in fact Debbie's taking on this job and another, doing both purchase ledger and credit control. Anyway, this lady is leaving today and yesterday, Debbie called me to let me know we had to go out last night and buy something pink for her, she knew where to get something and asked me to check what time they closed.

So, off I went to trusty old Google, which I often use as quick spell checker with the handy 'did you mean' response to an incorrect spelling. However, on this occasion it didn't work, I typed in the shops name, 'Au Naturel' and despite numerous attempts, all I could find was a vast selection of nudist beaches! It turns out that I should have typed 'Au Naturale' and I would have been presented with a home interiors shop rather than a list of places to get your kit off in public.

After all that, when I rang they said they closed at 6pm on Wednesday so it wasn't any good to us anyway. Instead we headed off to Asda where we found what Debbie was looking for and then decided to get some tea in store which turned out to be a bad choice. During the day the food here is pretty good for the money but late afternoon into evening everything looks like it's been sitting on display for three hours. Debbie asked for sausage, chips & gravy but when he served it up, he put bacon on instead of gravy then took it back off again, the chips looked disgusting and the gravy was really thin with huge lumps in it. We told him not to bother and we walked out, if we wanted food like that we'd have gone to a service station!

Feed Me, Feed Me!

The 'for sale' sign was still lurking outside our house when I got home last night, it's probably going to be another few days before they get around to taking it down, given that it took them nearly a week to put it up. We can't really do anything else until that's gone, the last thing we need right now is for the old estate agent to get fruity and send us a bill because we've gone with someone else.

Hey ho, at least we don't have to think about the sale of the house for a few days and we can just get home, relax and enjoy not having anything to do.... Well, we could if Lollypop understood the concept, as soon as we're through the door, he goes mental because he wants feeding, when he's been fed he wants to go out and when he comes back in he's bouncing around the place like Zebedee on speed.

It's not until after we've had our tea that things gradually calm down, with Lucy stuck like a limpet on the sofa and Lolly flopped next to her, completely exhausted, just like us!


Thanks For Linking!

A big thank you to All Jumbled Up for linking to us

Happy Birthday Gemmak!

We'd like to say a big Happy Birthday to Gemmak today! Coincidently her blog reached the one year milestone yesterday, sporting a new look for these two special occasions.

Escaping The Estate Agents From Hell

The estate agent called me yesterday to see what the problem was, the conversation was short and to the point and went something like this.

EA: What's the problem?

Me: We want to discuss this face to face, you need to either be available on Saturday Morning or come out and see us.

EA: Not possible, what's the problem?

Me: You gave us a quote stating 12 weeks minimum contract and no cancellation fee, then got me to sign a contract for 16 weeks and £300 cancellation fee which I couldn't read before signing because I was meeting you during my lunch hour and you were 40 minutes late. I want the contract changing to 12 weeks with no cancellation fee.


EA: Do you want to take the house of the market with us?

Me: Yes.

EA: It's done.


Me: Goodbye

EA: Goodbye

We're glad they didn't try to sort things out because we would have just been stuck with them for another 7 weeks with no likelihood of any viewings let alone a sale. We made the mistake of selling through them because we were going to buy our new house through them and it would have made things easier. At the time we didn't realise just how small a company they were, how little advertising they did and that their web site is impossible to find through any search engine.

We won't be making the same mistake again, we're not looking at any house now so we can go with who we like, which will probably be one of three that have boards up on our road at the moment. Before we sign up though, we'll also be asking more questions than they've ever been asked before so we know exactly where we stand before committing. Hopefully, with the right advertising and a propper discussion about the price to ask for instead of holding a finger in the air, we'll have an offer before too long.

We're both feeling more up-beat now we've got rid of the estate agents from hell and it's renewed our determination to get the house ship shape in readiness for more than one viewing in five weeks.

The Best Showman In The World

Well, another weekend has flashed by yet again. On Saturday we'd arranged to go and see the estate agents, however, when we got there we found that they didn't open on Saturdays, funny how they never mentioned this when I spoke to them last week, I get the distinct impression these people are taking the proverbial! So instead we headed over to their other office which we knew was open on Saturdays, only when we got there, the only person available was a young chap on his first day who could only offer to get someone to calls us on Monday. Not very good really so I'll be on the war path later today!

We didn't fair any better in the Grand National either, we had six horses including the ones in the sweep stake and the nearest we got was Clan Royal who when in the lead got pushed into the rails by two loose horses, sheesh!

At least the evenings entertainment was as good as promised, especially Queenmania, a bunch of stars covering several classic Queen tracks. They kept referring to the performance at Live Aid, really hyping it up as the best performance in the world ever, now it's twenty years since we watched it live, was it really that good? We got the Live Aid DVD set for Christmas so on Sunday afternoon we popped it on and two hours in, on strutted Freddie Mercury in all his glory. Transfixed right through to the end of their set, the only verdict we could come to was that all the hype was well deserved, the crowd went 'gaga' while Freddie gave it all showing us just what it takes to be the best showman in the world.

Spoilt For Choice

There's loads going on this weekend, the Pope's funeral today, Charles and his nag tie the knot tomorrow followed by loads more nags racing round the course at Aintree. We've drawn Polor Red and Jakari in the sweepstake at work for the Grand National, we'll probably pick a couple more out tonight and call in to the bookies tomorrow.

There's a half decent line up on the TV tomorrow night, with so much on we're going to have to dust the cobwebs off the video recorder to tape Doctor Who. The new show 'Hit Me Baby One More Time' should be good with golden oldies Shakin' Stevens and Doctor & The Medics. We're looking forward to watching Queenmania with stars of Coronation Street indulging in a spot of cross dressing for I Want To Break Free which is always a laugh. Ant & Dec get stitched up by Jonathan Wilkes out for revenge while little Ant & Dec interview Ozzy Osbourne who always has me in stitches. Should be a great night in as long as we stay away from KFC and other dodgy chicken vendors

It's bitterly cold today, it looks like the tops over the Pennines have had a dusting of snow overnight, we've just had a few flakes this morning blowing in the wind. It's warming up a little now, the sun is out, it's Friday and it's Crunchie Day!

Trust me, there was very little snow left on Cairngorm yesterday, it's been melting away steadily and today, they've got blizzards!

It's Snow Joke

After the rain yesterday afternoon, can you believe today the weather forecasters are warning of snow! It is much colder this morning and I'm guessing there might have been some snow over the Pennines already today.

It looks like getting even colder though the day and into tomorrow before getting warmer again over the weekend. It's hard to believe I was in t-shirt and shorts less than three weeks ago with temperatures into the twenties!
