And the WINNER is....

Kennet Lodge.

Paul's first choice, my second, but I am happy that a decision has been made. I forgot to mention that the cottage didn't have a shower, but had 2 big tubs with handheld shower attachments. That, and the Lodge is closer to Bath, which Paul really thought was important.

I can now start freecycling for stuff for the house. If you haven't heard of Freecycle before, it is a place where people post items online that they want to get rid of.

In London, it is a goldmine because people are always living here for short time periods to move overseas and they don't want to bring furniture with them. Also, when we left the states, we put 75% of our things in storage, expecting a small furnished flat. We cannot get our things shipped over for this unexpected move, and don't expect to take much home when we return to the States.

Time for more coffee!!

House Hunting

I may have mentioned it before, but we are moving to Bath, UK in August. This is very unexpected, but very welcome. I love London, but I look forward to more space, a nice garden (that's "Yard" in American), and much, much more quiet.

Some really cool houses that we looked at:

And then even though I wanted to sit home all day, Paul really wanted to go to 2 boot sales. We did find some cool stuff, to include these wonderful dishes. Watching Tivoed Wimbledon after boot sales:
Oh, and we saw The Wiggles on Friday. SO FUN!
