 It's been a REALLY long week! Is it really less than a week since my birthday?

I didn't get to FFXV last night, so it'll probably be tomorrow, now. *sigh* I really need to stop watching television - but 'Have I Got News For You?' is a) hilarious and b) the best political commentary around. And a chance to spend time with the family.

Yesterday was supposedly the completion date for the house. We had an email from the lender last week saying they would transfer the funds on that date but I didn't hear from them or the solicitor yesterday. I presume that means they handled everything between them and didn't need us - but SOME communication would have been helpful. I'm expecting a letter or email today or Monday. If we don't hear by Monday, I'll get in touch with the solicitor. This process has taken nigh on a year, mostly due to delays from LMH. Part of me still isn't sure it's the best idea. I mean, I am a HUGE fan of social housing (not to mention someone else being responsible for things like leaky roofs!). But we aren't going to move out any time soon (if ever), so it's not going to be available for another family, and this way, the landlord get funding to build new housing. Plus, we'll pay the mortgage off in 17 years and then we'll be done. And, to be fair, we've hardly ever had any problems with the house in the 28 years we've been here.

I bought a very pretty top on ebay the other day, which I'm hoping will turn up today. But I forgot to check in on a skirt and trouser suit I was watching, before I went to sleep - so that's gone. I really could do with a 'new' brown suit.

After a couple of quietish weeks at work, next week looks manic. Expect much wailing and gnashing of teeth in this journal!

Well, time for emails and then to get dressed and get this day underway. Doctor Who tonight!
