In light of the news that Friend of Uborka Pix has today become the proud joint owner of a new house, today’s Bar-erry has a theme of celebrations and house-warming.
So. Solicitor just phoned. The completion had gone through. Apparently we have a house!

Ladies and Gentlemen, your orders please…
Having been on both sides of that transaction* more than once, I know what an emotional roller coaster it is. WOOO!
As Sevitz can no doubt attest, this stage prepares you for what lies ahead.. never-ending renovation, repair and maintenance. Depending on your skills and disposition this can be a blessing, a curse or both.
to mark the occassion I’ll have a Carpenter’s Hand.
Let me get you one too.
* Having watched the Phil and Kirsty shows, I must say the property laws in England and Scotland make it even more like a tightrope walk.
Many hurrahs! As a housewarming present, I’m giving Pix a floor-to-ceiling cubbyhole bookcase, like what you see in yarn stores. She’ll know what to do with it. And I’m off to the school barbecue in half an hour, so I’ll have a warm glass of wine, quickly followed by another.
I’ll have a glass full of sleep please. I’m very tired.
