Gathering

I’ve been to the Gathering! My first LARP experience – it was good. I wasn’t expecting too much actual roleplaying at an event with 5000 people, but I did get some in, and it was generally an excellent four days. Hopefully we’ll both be there again next year.

Stress

Getting close to the move. Talk about stress. Sheesh! Never knew what stress was until this month arrived. Telling the removal firm we wanted to move, and giving them an address, but not knowing if we’d actually been accepted for the flat!!! Boy, stress-city!

Anyway, finally moved into a brilliant three-bedroomed flat. Those who know us – mail us for the address/phone number.

Notice!

Handed in my notice to British Steel – gave them 8 weeks notice. More than enough time to get things finished off (hah!)

On the move

And this month I found out that Boots had offered me a job in Nottingham. Grete packed in her job, because her boss was being completely unreasonable. Started planning the move (sort of).

Driving test success!

Grete passed her driving test :-))))))))) Congratulatory e-mails to [removed]. The little brown (red? burgundy?) car is finally getting used, and we are planning trips all over the place to visit friends missed for a long long time. :-)))) Life certainly gets better all the time 🙂

House

Well, I bought a house 😉 Now all I need to do is decorate [wry grin]

Grete ….

I asked her to marry me, and she said yes. Nothing else this month came close to being important when compared to that 🙂
