Do what you love…….


Harold’s Planet is so hitting the spot right now.

In a moment I am sailing out to view a house and the estate agent has called to say that I will need to see beyond it’s pitiful state as the current tenant does not do housework and appears to have been woodworking in the front room. Ever optimistic, I see possibilities for negotiation as it is in a lovely spot….

My hoover is being used daily as this little cottage where I live goes onto the market.

The lovely SS and I are working together tomorrow night as a client is coming up from London and that means we get to eat together and I get to stock up on contraband (don’t ask!).

Amidst all this activity I still need to work and my clients, unaware of the turmoil going on, may be catching the humour.

I have just had a text from my farmer friend asking if I need anything from the market as we are getting together to make pancakes tonight. He signed himself off as ‘tosser’ and I cannot bring myself to call him that, but I still hold hope for a ride on the back of his tractor.

Must dash….

    Lots o luck with the viewing, Jane. Your life is like a see-saw with all the “stuff” on one seat and Jane on the other trying to hold on. Prayers that all will “even out” for you soon.
    Blessings ~ Maxi

      Thank you Maxi for your care and support. The little cottage I saw this morning is perfect and I am going ahead with it…light relief in making pancakes helps me to balance my see saw right now…there is a secret garden with this cottage and it has a veggie patch and herb garden. I stood there in the frosty air this morning and all you could hear was the birds singing….I did not want to leave. Big hugs to you xxx

    Hi Jane!

    I do hope you get settled soon in a new home.

    And I would love to see a picture of you on that tractor too! Maybe when your farmer friend has finished all the “tossing” he will allow you that ride! 😊

    When I saw the sign “flea market” a teapot appeared floating above my head!

    Lots of love and
    (((Big hugs)))


    PS Enjoy the pancakes and toss some my way, I love them!

      Oh Chris you are lovely, and yes, I will send some pancakes your way. I have stocked up on golden syrup, lemons and blueberries….perfect to switch off from what is happening right now. The cottage this morning is perfect and it’s full steam ahead…and yup, I am still holding hope for a tractor ride and funky teapots xxxx big hugs xxxx

    A “tosser” ?

    Pardon my ignorance (or should it be, imagination) but, images of my buddy sitting on a tractor and trundling down meadows and getting tossed about came to mind.

    It sounds a bit as if tractors are the new Ferrari. Anyway, good luck with the house. I’ve got to say moving is often difficult as I sadly know only too well

      Hello Peter, tractors have always done it for me…whenever a man has tried to impress me with his ‘car’ or material wealth he has missed by a mile. I am applying for the little place I saw this morning…onward and upward…xx


I love to hear from you and having different perspectives are what this is all feel free to let me know what you think.....
