the one with the donuts!

and a little catching up! This post is going to be a bit of a mishmash so bear with me!  I don’t know where the time has been going but I just can’t manage to blog regularly lately!  So, what have we been up to lately??

We’ve been visiting friends and eating too much and drinking too much. I love my friends!  I’ve been cleaning the house/organizing for viewing.  I’m still amazed that I’ve gotten 2 viewings (and countless emails) from the tepilo website listing. We are listing w/ a local estage agent, he’s coming on Monday to get the details and the house should be listed by next week! I’m been a bit stressed out about the fact that our house is not super ready to sell.  We are 3 living in a 2 bedroom house with little/no storage so it gets a bit cluttered around here.  The kitchen needs to be modernized. The back garden needs a little love.  Then I just remind myself if the kitchen was all shiny and new I’d be asking more money!

Oh and in case you’re wondering how Wal feels about all this, he’s just going along with it and I’m sure if/when someone makes an offer he’s going to act all surprised!  LOL that’s just what he does and I love him for it- when I’m not irritated with him for it!  I keep telling him we’ll be moving in with his parents if we sell before finding a place.  As most of you know THAT would be interesting!  On that subject Squidge is constantly talking about my parents and how they live in America.  Sooooo because I’m an evil bitch I asked her if Daddy had a mummy or daddy, she said no, he did not.  I hope that made Wal feel like shit! Not that it’s his fault his parents are useless pieces of flaming dog doo… Anyhoo I’ve always said I wouldn’t be nasty to/about them on this blog as it’s their loss so I’ll end it there.

I haven’t mentioned wedding plans for a while so I’ll do that now.  Wal and I are getting married on the 24 April at Manchester City Hall.  Nothing fancy just the 3 of us and our witnesses.  I still need to speak to my witness (yes, I’m looking at you Biff) and I KNOW Wal hasn’t contacted him witness either so we might end up just pulling someone walking down the hall! Last minute cuz that’s how we roll!!  I hope this doesn’t offend anyone but it’s just a formality.  We are planning on having a party later in the year and inviting all our friends and family- I’m thinking August.  I just want something really casual and laid back for the ‘reception”,  I’m not really into all the formality and traditional wedding rigmarole.  I’ll let ya’ll know the details later in the year.  If you want to come to the party and you don’t think I have your address just send me an email.

Considering this blog is supposed to be all about Squidge I suppose I should mention her.  I’m finding her more and more grown up and it’s hard to wrap my head around!  She’s going to be 4 in June but I swear she’s more like 12!  She never shuts up, constantly wants me (or her Dad) to read to her, knows how to write (finally) her name, loves to imaginative play and loves donuts more than anything else in the world.  Thank goodness (or not) for Krispy Kreme)

I also want to apologize to my Mom for not calling her.  Every day around lunch time I think about calling my mother.  The only problem is that lunch time here is 5 am there- not a sociable time to call anyone!  I’m hoping to finally call tonight after Squidge gets home from nursery.  I’m not making any promises as we’re baking pizza for supper and I might not survive.

If you’ve read this far down you really are a dedicated Squidgyboo reader.  Because I’m a slacker blogger I’m going to open this up to questions.  Now the last time I did this no one asked any questions and my ego was wounded.  Still here I go again, this time I’ll make cookies so I can drown my wounded ego is  chocolate chips!   So what do you want to know? Anything I haven’t mentioned that you’ve been curious about? Now is your chance! Also any lurkers out there why don’t you stop for a sec and say HELLO!

      I’d rather go to Dunkin Donuts but they don’t have any here! Nothing significant about the 24th.
