I have a morgage meeting with the bank on Friday, if I can get a morgage with the job I have, then I'll keep it, if I can't then I will quit and do what I want.

Well, this seems as such a win win situation, no?

I'll be miserable, but will have a house of my own to be miserable in!

Homeownership can be quite a PITA. For example, on our national holiday, July 4th, we had a gigantic 24+ inch wide branch fall from our neighbor's tree into our yard. And the toilet in the guest bathroom broke. Both before my inlaws were due to arrive for a BBQ. Yet, there is something about owning a little bit that is fully yours.

Good luck! If the credit situation in the UK is anything like it is in the US right now be prepared for a body cavity search as part of the application.

I'm slightly more relaxed now I have chosen the flat and paid the fees! Work is still stressing me, but hopefully that will be cured by my move across to the other store, which should be happening soon!

Good morning Ladies. I am rather in a panic, so much to do and so little time to do it all in. I have been sewing a rush job of 3 all-in-one suits to be flown off to Sweden. So now I have to find time to make my Asylum outfits. So I need a time machine real bad. I need to go back to June and re-organise myselfe better. Any Ideas.
Yours,
Lady Elsie...

Wish I could sew well enough to help you, ma'am.  Unfortunately, improving my sewing and learning to use a sewing machine are two things that I haven't yet had time to do.  But maybe if you asked, there miht be some others that could help? You could have a sewing party, perhaps (people volunteer their time to help - you provide tea and bikkies kind of thing)?

Dear Auntie,

Thats a fab idea ! I have a long wig, and ride side saddle well enough. My friend Claire has some of the best trained horses, which we use for film work. So all in need is a good iron  Grin

And who will join me then.?? A Lady will need a couple of Maids in Waiting to assist her.

Esme over the winter I would gladly take you under my wing and go through making a simple garment with you. P.M. and we will make a date.

Lady Elsie.

Greetings and Salutations good laidies,
 
Might I enquire if a "gentleman" of the lavender persuasion with a pechant for tea be allowed to join this most interesting establishment?

Please, make yourself at home Mr.Heterodyne. As long as you don't find our discussions of feminine concerns boring I'm sure there will be no objections. Now, may I pour for you?

Dear me, this is neither the tobacconist's nor the apothecary's, is it? More digging to be done, I suppose.

Why thank you Miss Briton.

As for the possibility of my finding the discussions boring, that is highly UNlikly on this site (and especialy this particular board Grin)

*wakes up, startled* Eh? What was that? An explosion?  They didn't overdo the bilateral torque on the flipside of the Northern line in the Mornington Crescent match or some such foolishness, did they?  I warned 'em about that, you know. It'll end in tears, I said, just like the ploy wossisname Fawkes tried in Parliament Square umpty years ago..

Did someone mention tea? English Breakfast for me, please, with a dash of cream and Scotch!  Now, what did I do with my newspaper?

Good morning Cornelia. My! Such energy and enthusiasm. I think the kippers have been over-salted, but the orange marmalade is particularly good; I think it may have a nip of rum in it!
