Here we go again, maybe?

We have stalled in our attempt to sell the house. We are still waiting to see if the two-time viewers are in a position, or inclined, to make an offer. As I said in my last post, it is a waiting game, always!

Anyhow, before the boys were up from their pits this morning I made sausage rolls. Don't you just love ready-made, ready-rolled puff pastry? Harry had requested them so I could put them in their lunch boxes as he likes to have pate on toast for breakfast and I try not to give the boys bread at more than one meal a day.

So here are the finished articles, looking quite tasty I think?

At the same time, well I put it in a little earlier, as baking the sausage rolls I popped a whole butternut squash in so I was making the best of the oven. When properly baked and nice and soft I scooped out the flesh am now in the process of making one of my yummy snacks for when I am watching my weight - when am I not? Here you see other ingredients; lemon, olive oil, lentils and garlic paste. You simply add the boiled lentils, juice from half a lemon, a teaspoon of the oil, a sqirt of the garlic and just combine. Absolutely tasty with a savoury biscuit and if you are on Weight Watchers Filling and Healthy plan you don't have to count any of it!

I haven't posted any of my makes and bakes for a while so thought I would this morning,whilst everything looks nice and fresh or has at least lasted until lunch time. To be honest I can't guarantee the sausage rolls will make it beyond tomorrow's lunch boxes!

Hope you have enjoyed my

New buyer!

Things don't always go smoothly, do they?

Moving house is on the list of very stressful things you can do in your life and we are experiencing a little of that now.

In the last 10 days or so we have lost our buyer but hopefully have found another!

Due to circumstances beyond our control our buyer's buyer pulled out which in turn meant ours had to also, but we have had another couple view the house twice, are returning again on Thursday and we hope to have some sort of news by the weekend.

Our vendors are being so very kind and not putting their house back on the market yet, even though we are the only people to have viewed it since it was advertised, and they would be well within their rights to do so! 

Again, it is a waiting game but really hope we have a positive outcome.

This has all occured since we visited schools for the boys in Wales on June 19. We have decided that, worse case scenario, if we lose the house in Wales we still want to move to the same area and will look for another house there. But let us hope and pray to something or someone that all is well very soon.

News to follow?! xx
