No. I'm done with that.  Happy where I am.

My god, but houses are selling fast.  ....

Indeed.  A friend decided to put theirs up for sale at Easter, and by the time it hit the estate agents (for me to have a nose) they'd not only got a buyer but had also got a new place planned.  About two days I think.  Bearing in mind that was England not Scotland, where the laws are different, and all the lawyer delays/surveys/etc - all of which need to be posted via Royal Snail (despite office being a 5 min walk away) - I understand that they have now completed and moved.

Compared to last time I moved when it took me over 18 months to find this place, and multiple collapsed chains on trying to sell the old house.

Hooray, we have binding contracts for both sale and purchase. I can start doing all the boring admin shit now.
Do not clench. It only makes it worse.

I’ve just booked a weekend away in North Yorkshire at the end of April. I’m going to get fitted for boots at Alt-Berg. First time we’ve been away from home for about 6 months (our Christmas trip was cancelled).

We’ll be staying in a posh shepherd’s hut on a farm just north of Richmond...

This sort of thing..


?

That'll be nice.
Sic transit and all that..

No, that's a Posh Super-Twat's Hut. I can see where you made the mistake, though...

Hopefully Reg's hut doesn’t come with a gammon-faced pig-botherer-in-residence.

When I discovered, by seeing a van painted with the name of one, that there are firms making brand new shepherd's huts for tourists to sleep in, I realized we had reached peak first-world problem status.

I have a colleague in Herts who is making them as a sideline.  I suggested he try to flog a few to Camoron.
