Wow, my stats have plummeted – noone seems to be searching for Christina Hendricks any more. What did the poor gal do? Or maybe there is another sexy flame haired siren in town, and I should feature a few of them. Perhaps I will, just because girls with the most beautiful hair make me happy and cheery and more than a little bit envious, and so I ought to feature them anyway to brighten up the old homestead a little.

Anyway, onto the real purpose of this blog, which believe it or not isn’t just aiming to extol the virtues of gorgeous redheads, and the fact that I wish I was one. I wanted to fill you in on my life, the things that have happened over the weekend and the slightly terrifying state of affairs that I am now in.
I had a wonderful weekend. I spent Saturday chatting in a brilliantly teenage girlie way down at the park, in the baking sun. That night I was taken to dinner, by the lovely Laura, and we went to the pub afterwards to meet Cie and have a few causal drinks. We walked home obscenely late at night, but were still up early enough to go to the car boot sale the next day. There I found four books and some very cheap Royal Doulton, which never hurts! Finally we drove over to Stratford for a picnic and a wander, before coming back to Leamington to watch the most absurdly brilliant episode of Doctor Who I think I have ever seen. I am also developing an odd crush on the new Doctor Who, Matt Smith, as well as on his wonderful sidekick, Amy Pond.
Then we went to see a house. This is a house I have been excited about for as long as I have know about it, and my instincts prove right. It was beautiful. Great house, great original features, huge master bedroom and a cute little garden to die for. The drawback? That I am not the only person who wants it, and I am amongst a group who have made applications. I hope (hope!) that I have made a good impression by texting him about liking the house, by being available to move in asap, and by the fact that I sent over my work reference first thing today so that his job is almost completely done. I really really hope I get it, but doubt I will know until tonight at the earliest. It is very scary indeed!
Keep your fingers crossed for me!
[UPDATE: I didn’t get the house. Apparently someone was willing to sign up to a 2 year contract. Which is just ridiculous, and impractical, and I had said I would sign up for a year and hopefully stay longer. So, all in all, I am a bit upset and stressed, and my phone battery has died, and I will now be homeless this weekend, most likely. Eek]
