The Cherry on the Cake

 


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.

Fate

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.

Who knows.

We are both very happy at the moment and the sun is shining.  Many cherries on many cakes.

  3. Wow ! Sounds more like a cherry pie! I am so pleased for you both and fingers crossed that it goes well . I am a great believer in fate , things happen for a reason, I have had something on my back for a while it was not a mole but it started to itch , I was listening to something on the radio that I wouldn't normally listen to that mentioned itchy stuff so got it checked, it's skin cancer, I never would have thought as it doesn't look like it. It has been treated and is now in the healing process, on wednesday I had my flu jab and as usual it become red and very sore, I was checking how far the swelling went and there it was, another area of the cancer, my husband checked and saw another higher up near my neck, he took photos and doctor confirmed it , also two small ones on my leg so here we go again. If it wasn't for my flu jab I probably wouldn't have noticed for a while, and the annoying thing is I am not a sun worshipper, the word bugger springs to mind ( excuse language ), never mind, it could be worse :).
