Poems are written through one lens and readers often read through another. 😉 Still waiting on move – it’s taking forever to get through the various steps – inspection, appraisal, etc. Actual move might not be until early December. Getting ready though! Thanks for asking. 🙂
We’re currently having the kitchen replaced. (The one we inherited ten years ago was already in poor shape.) This isn’t as bad as moving but as we swing into the third week without proper cooking, washing up or laundering facilities, plus regular divergences from what was agreed and promised and increases to the overall cost life is currently a little less than rosy.

I don’t envy you going through such a huge project! Hopefully you’ll love and enjoy your new kitchen when it’s finished. 😀 It’ll be worth it!
So I keep telling Margaret. 😀
