Life Goes On

Iam a Strawberry

You are friendly, outgoing, and well liked by many people.
You are popular, but there's nothing you ordinary or average about you.
You a very interesting person, and you have many facets to your personality.
Sometimes you feel very conflicted. Your different sides of your personality pull at you.
You are a very sensual and passionate person. You are fiery... you can't help it.
In general, you keep your passionate side under wraps. You are only wild in private.

Well there is something else you probably did not know about me (or, in fact, I about myself)!

So our visitors arrive today from the U.K. apparently armed with enough Branston Pickle to ward off a nuclear attack! I've got a hunch there may be some alcohol on its way as well. GWE is also home (and he was suitably impressed by my handiwork in the bathroom). So the house has to be cleaned, groceries have to be bought, the beer supplies replenished.

Meanwhile I have to try and maintain the role of a real estate agent, because the hours are so flexible (read erratic) it is often difficult to remain focused, especially when hubby wants to spend his busman's holiday designing the French house and, of course, I need to put my two cents in.

Anyway to compound matters, we listed our rental property, located in a city one and a half hours away, for sale this week, Tuesday in fact. Liquifying our assets here in order to solidify them in a roof in France. Already we have heard that there are 2 to 3 offers coming in so we have to drive all the way back for the offer presentation tomorrow. Do we take our visitors with us, leave them at the Mall here, what kind of hosts are we?? Also we have to be back in Toronto evening as we booked tickets to see the Queen musical with our visitors. None of this leads to a relaxed way of life as you can imagine.

All I need now is for my listing here to sell today/tomorrow and my clients want to go and look a properties immediately. (Honest I'm not complaining!!!) So if my head doesn't explode off my shoulders, I will be back on Monday to give you an update. Have a great weekend everyone.

Are you my little dot in the Hamilton region or the Ottawa region?

Take the visitors - unless they are jet-lagged...they'll enjoy how different life is in Canada.

You really need to move to France soon, lovely relaxed lifestyle and time to enjoy yourself. You make me feel exhausted just to read your blog today. Thanks for popping by and leaving me your comments, it is so good to see that people enjoy what you write isnt it? I love reading everyones blogs but I'm not very good yet at commenting and I should because I love receiving them. Will pop by after the weekend to see how it all went. Good luck.
