It's been awhile since I've posted a house update - if all goes well (and it should), we'll be exchanging contracts and so forth this week, and we'll get the keys on Thursday! It's an exciting time for us :) Our boxes arrived yesterday, and we've started doing what we can packing-wise... which led me to find some very interesting things today. I love finding old treasure that I forgot I had. Let me give you the backround story to this picture. When I first moved to England (6 years ago! wow) my husband had rented us this cute little furnished flat on a short-term basis. I'd brought lots of my things over from America, and we had lots of souvenirs and things from our travels, so we made things home-y pretty quickly. It was nice. I liked it there. For some reason or another, my husband had a MASSIVE Chiquito's menu he'd acquired, and I had a brain wave one day, to stick this colourful menu on the windowsill. Ooh, a simple way to spice up the boring kitchen! It started a little fad. Now I don't like to say we STOLE the other menus, but yes, we did - until I ended up with no space left on my windowsill and years later, I find way too many 'borrowed' menus in a bag crammed on the top shelf of a cupboard!
Mr. Merriweather: Oh, you study numerology?
Lucy Ricardo: Of course.
Mr. Merriweather: I'm a 1.
Lucy Ricardo: I'm a 3.
Ricky Ricardo: I'm a 5.
Mr. Merriweather: We're all odd, aren't we?
