It is quiet in here isn't it?

It is Pauline, I'm not sure why, my guess is nobody is asking for help and nobody is going home...

It is quiet all over BE these days.
I wonder if we haven't gone out of fashion a bit what with Flopbook, Twitter and the like.

Still. I suppose we are cosy.

Twitter has been around for a while, I consider it much different to BE as they are people that know each other, whereas here on BE everyone is anonymous.

I'm not a member of Facebook or Twitter and have no desire to join, Ive never even heard of flopbook.

Thats how I see it.

We are finally making plans to return this year! :britflag: We have a house and a business to sell. Fortunately no mortgage on the house, and it's in an area that generally sells fast. Lucked out on the business too - we are a service business and if someone doesn't want to take it as a whole, we can sell off the accounts to our competitors. We will sell up by the summer and spend a month with our daughter before heading over. I can't believe we are finally at this point! Now I just have to get cracking on the sorting, selling and packing up. Good thing we are minimalists and not hoarders! Hope everyone has started the year off with a bang :lol: More news from you all please!

Nope. Wish we did. We will be starting over - renting, at least at first - until we decide on a permanent location.

So is everyone happy that it is all over and happy when it was happening?
I didn't get any mince pies or lemon cheese tarts like my mom use to make but I do have a Christmas plum pudding that I don't know how to prepare.
We may get some much needed rain in the next day or two. Upee!?
Have to go to the doctors tomorrow for a check up. 600 miles, I think, one way??
Cheers

Today is my birthday and I'm celebrating becoming 78. Imagin that! I feel like I'm in my 50's

I am celebrating with several glasses of Martinellis Apple Cider which I love.

Cheers
