Keep Calm and Carry On
The Eurotunnel and hotel is booked for next weekend but the days are moving incredibly slowly. We have managed to sell one property again this week, and we have viewings on the coach house later today and tomorrow. If we can get an offer on this place before next weekend we will be able to proceed on the Forest of Dean property. No pressure at all.
I was so pleased for Kat when she got her posting to Cyprus, all that sunshine and sea. Now, with the situation in Syria, I am worried about her safety. I’m sure she’s fine but it just adds to my anxiety levels. Enough of that, pull yourself together Susan. I have nothing to be worried about compared to some people.
I’ve been watching a lot of television during this wet, cold spell of weather. My afternoon cup of tea is currently accompanied by an episode of The Crown, courtesy of Netflix. I was surprised how entertaining this series (the life of Queen Elizabeth II from the 40s to modern times) has been. Claire Foy and Matt Smith do a very good job of portraying the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, they have their mannerisms down to a T. The creators clearly use a lot of poetic licence but everything is historically factual or based on the gossip and rumours of the time. Did Jackie Kennedy really describe the Queen as “incurious, unintelligent and unremarkable” after meeting her? Just the sort of light entertainment I need to keep me calm right now.
