So we may be moving house.

We made our verbal offer last night and hopefully should hear back today whether or not it's been accepted. Exciting times! We've lived in our current wee house for nearly fifteen years and while it suited us fine as a childless couple it's become a nightmare (space-wise) with two kids, not to mention our huge beast of a dog. Our  new house (hopefully) is going to be amazing, not least because I'll have my very own writing table with a glimpse of a view across the Clyde and therefore no excuses not to be writing!

The house we're going for is just over the other side of town, and, interesting, is on the same street as a house that used to be Robert Louis Stevenson's holiday home which, by the way, is also up for sale but out of our price range! 

The next couple of months are going to be pretty busy but I'm still going to StAnza next month, and a night of celebration and poetry in Dunblane in April for Poetry Scotland's 140th birthday bash (Colin and Sally's joint 70th birthdays!).

Good luck with the house. I'm looking forward to catching up with you at StAnza and Dunblane, Marion!

Hope you get the new space!

At least you have the important stuff catered for. Just think, when the kids grow up you might even get your own office. Not a big fan of working in front of open windows though. I have always turned my desk to the wall. Normally I’m not bad at blocking out distractions but windows are there to be looked out of.

How exciting! The new house sounds brilliant, I hope it all goes as smoothly as possible.
And I may not make it to StAnza after all, as the ill health in these here parts is a tad entrenched at the moment.
