1. On Wednesday night, the weather looked good for Saturday and Saturday night, but come yesterday morning it was altogether much more of a ‘damp’ picture. That said, they are now saying its going to be nice on Friday again, broadly speaking, so maybe we might get lucky for the Bicester and Abingdon Concert Band firework spectacular in Garth Park on Saturday night.

2. I’m trying not to think about the viewing on my house last night. I want to know. I want to phone Alexander’s and ask them. I’m not going to. They’ll phone me just as soon as they hear something.

3. Em just phoned me from outside a (closed) animal sanctuary with a couple of fledgling Jays that some helpful soul had ‘rescued’ and brought into the vets. There was much squawking down the line. I did however leap onto the phone with the anticipation that it might be the estate agent. What have I become?

4. Okay, have just heard from Alexanders. The lady from Jay Close liked my house, and the south-facing garden, that’s good. 🙂 But let me get this straight:

We, Cypress, are interested in Spruce; Spruce are interested in Jay; Jay are intersted in Souldern, and to make things happen, Cypress; Jay have put an offer in on Souldern; Souldern are moving into somewhere rented in Banbury; Jay are waiting to hear what about their offer on Souldern so that they know what they can afford to offer on Cypress.

5. Because its fun, it passes the time, and its a damn sight easier to understand than house chains, I’m going to continue with yesterday’s iPod on shuffle. If anything it is an insight into my random and eclectic musical tastes! *grins*
