Yay!

As of about 2:00 this afternoon, we joined the ranks of those who are in debt by really rather a huge amount to the bank - our house purchase went through with only one last minute hitch; the bank didn't fax the solicitor to say that the mortgage had been paid into their account, which meant that they couldn't confirm the transaction with the seller's solicitor. All sorted out before I could get *too* twitchy about it, though!

All I can think of at the moment is this xkcd comic (click to make it readable!):

Oh so happy for you John & Jo! Congrats. I thought to send you this present of an Irish Saying which sits in many houses including my own:

COME IN THE EVENING,
COME IN THE MORNING,
COME WHEN EXPECTED,
COME WITHOUT WARNING;
THOUSANDS OF WELCOMES YOU'LL FIND HERE BEFORE YOU,
AND THE OFTENER YOU COME,
THE MORE WE'LL ADORE YOU.

Jo - I've been out of the 'circuit' a bit of late, and only just read your good news. Many congratulations! I hope you'll both be very happy in your new home.

A very merry Christmas to you both and all best wishes for the New Year.
