Well, back again, and still somewhat giddy from the free WiFi thing. When I discovered that we could log on and cruise the internet for free I sent Steve a text that read "Free Wifi, bottle of red and BBQ Pringles in the bar." Of course, being the old romantic that he is his reply was "You had me at Free WiFi". Bless. Who says the way to a man's heart is through his stomach - I firmly believe it's through his liver and his laptop.

Today we took a peek at the outside of another house, we're still looking for that perfect combination of head and heart. This one has plenty of parking *and* amazing views so we've decided to take a look around the inside next week. We don't want to put anyone to any trouble for a viewing unless we've checked out the outside first, we know how excited we get at the prospect of a viewing and we don't want to raise anyone's hopes unnecessarily. We have noticed that there are a lot of new places coming on to the market just now though, so maybe that perfect palace is just around the corner. Well actually it might be - I've spotted the perfect place just yards from the campsite and with the most incredible views, but it has two minor drawbacks. One, it's not on the market and two, even if it were we couldn't afford it. Having never been one to be put off by mere practicalities I shall hang on to my dreams to the bitter end.
The rest of this week sees me working back down in Alston and Steve negotiating delivery of a posh new lens for his camera. On Saturday we're meeting up with my family for a meal near Preston. We try to get together a couple of times a year at the mid point between where we all live and, as luck would have it, thanks to my big bruv living near Newcastle and my big sis living near Kidderminster, half way is just down the road for us. It will be wonderful to see some familiar faces and enjoy a loud and lively lunch. Bet they don't have free wifi there though.
