hurry up, hurry up

impatient cat is impatient

So much for the easy Monday exchange. Thanks to lawyers and banks stuffing up, exchange is slated for this afternoon. It better be, we've booked the truck for tomorrow and the new beds arrive in an hour.

I have primed up my iPhone camera for documentation porpoises.

I have met the pets on one side: two cats and a little yappy dog. One of the cats has obviously learned from the dog, as it is yappy too, and looks like a miniature version of our cats. We'll have a black cat street! Mind you, I think it will be chaos for a while.

Padge has also been ill. I have had to squirt horrid expensive antiobiotics down his throat with a syringe four times a day. I have become an expert at grabbing a huge handful of the scruff of his neck to pull it back for the squirting. It's not pretty, but it's a great skill to learn and I wish I'd been shown it years ago, could have some in handy with Bumblebee :) Anyhoo, the drugs are working, he's perky as hell today.

Soooo exciting. And you get new beds, as well!

Good luck with the quickness. We have been the annoyingly slow buyers, so now I feel guiltier.

I hope the exchange went well today. Was thinking of you. I tried to do a drive past the other day, but I couldn't remember the number ;-)

Silly puss-cat for getting himself sick (I assume it was self-inflicted somehow)...

Ah. Memory goes back to a previous move when we arrived at new house in the truck (me 7 months preggers) to find that the previous owners hadn't actually started packing. Fingers crossed, toes crossed, eyes crossed! Good luck with it all and hope you're still able to type when you've downed the champagne on the other side! Sara x
