Two bits of good news to mention. Firstly, we are drinking champagne because we accepted an offer on our flat today. Surprisingly the thing that they really liked was the pull out washing lines that Daz put in by the window, but whatever, it's a good offer.
Secondly, I am learning to play the ukulele and have just about mastered 'what shall we do with the drunken sailor'. Give it a few more weeks and I will be available to play at parties and barbecues - just let me know if you are interested.
