Looks good to me! Let me know when you have your home-warming party - I'll bring Hippolyta, Mellors and friends as you'll have room for all of us...

I hope that the move for you, Brian, David and the rest of the family won't be as stressful and draining as feared.

Do you know if it's a temporary move?

Don't know yet. The Church only address us now via their solicitors who use very threatening language.

An eviction order is being applied for the Church next Tuesday – let's celebrate the true spirit of Easter together! – although our solicitors are still trying to avoid that happening.

If and when they get their order, we will have a matter of weeks to pack our two lifetimes of possessions and move out. No idea how I am going to complete my work deadlines–––––

Oh, sorry, Buttons says I've gone on long enough and this is getting boring!

And he's right!! :)

Next Tuesday seems an incredibly insensitive date to chose.

But, Buttons, Hippolyta says that if you don't manage to secure the new living quarters you have your eye on, you are very welcome to come and stay here. (I'd think rather carefully about that if I were you: she's not the easiest hippo to get along with, especially when in diva mode)

The Church???,... I'm a bit lost.

In Spain we have a saying (from Don Quijote): "Con la Iglesia hemos topado", translate: We are bumping with the Church... it means the image of the Church in Spain as a great and powerful institution that have particular rules, very difficult to go beyond.

Good luck!!

The church own the property that we rent – in David's case for the past 39 years!
