Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside

Dad phoned today to say that they've had an offer accepted on a house in Fleetwood. He's been agitating for a move back up north for a while, preferably by the sea. Mum's come round to the idea of uprooting herself from Norfolk, where they moved to over 40 years ago. After several trips, they've finally picked somewhere, very close to the sea front, apparently.

I have worried about them leaving Norfolk. They're both well into their 70's,  and it's reassuring to know they live just 5 minutes away from my brother, Chris, and his family. We do have family in Lancashire, as that's where Mum and Dad came from originally, but they aren't so close, and are mostly the same kind of age as Mum and Dad.
   Still, it's what they want, and as Dad said, selling the large house in Norfolk and buying a smaller one in Fleetwood will free up a fair amount of money that could be needed for them later. 

So it's just as well that Gary and I are planning to visit them this May (they hope to move in June). I can take a look at some boxes of my old stuff that's in the attic, and decide what to keep and what to dispose of. Mum was regretting that there wouldn't be enough room for the piano, which is a nice little cottage upright. Sadly I don't have room for one (and I don't think we could get it in the back of Gary's hatchback either).

I spent a chunk of this afternoon uploading, sorting, titling and organizing dozens of photos from my digital camera. Plenty pics of the cats, some of Secret Santa at the HH 2005, Evie's naming ceremony, some toys and ornaments I might sell on ebay one day.

Otherwise, not a very productive day.

Sure, there's also some of you all here for putting up Xmas decorations, including Evie sleeping on her sleeping Daddy.
The email add I've got for you is a blueyonder one, with your maiden name - is that still good ?

Yay! That email should work - I think it's the one Edy still uses for me!

I just tried it and no luck - couldn't be sent.

My email add is on my website, (if you don't have it) so you can mail me on that
