She grew happy 😊
I've not been here long but already I have grown happy. Living by the river suits me, but I'll only be here for another six months or so. It is the perfect stepping stone to the future and one that I will enjoy right until the last moment of being here.
The thing is I grew so happy that fate stepped in to put the cherry on the cake.
A house came on the market that will suit us both down to the ground. It's very early days at the moment as we only viewed it, fell in love with it and had our offer accepted on it yesterday. But what it has, encompasses a perfect future living pattern for us both and we are in total agreement.
If Alan hadn't needed some more newspaper to start the log burner back at home, and I hadn't gone to Sainsbury's to buy him some milk and spotted the free Property newspapers on stand near the door. If I hadn't put the papers on the floor in the spare room with the back cover faced upwards and hadn't noticed what was on that cover, checked the details online, forwarded them to Alan who immediately made an appointment to view, just days before someone else was coming back for a second viewing.
We are both very happy at the moment and the sun is shining. Many cherries on many cakes.
