the edits are done...

for the moment, anyway. I think this lot has sharpened up Dangerous Games a whole lot, and that the logic now all connects and makes sense--but I'm the author and I naturally tend to think that anyway ;) We'll see what Anne says. It did take me longer than expected, but that's probably because we had a somewhat busy weekend. The househunting continues--we actually saw a house on Saturday that we all adored, but cost wise it was a little bit more than we wanted to pay, and it had a few problems. Like, it was on tanks, and the fences were regular old farm fences. The leaping lab can clear 7 foot suburbian fences. Farm fences would prove no hassle at all--and she's not the sort of dog we can let lose. Beside the whole being run over factor, she's a lab and she loves chasing things. I don't think the neighbours would appreciate having their stock rounded up willy nilly. And of course, you know needle nose (aka Finn or the fluffy one) would be right there in the middle of it all, yapping away. So, we'll keep hunting for a place in Greenvale, and in the meantime, keep fixing up our current place.

I'm back to writing Destiny today, and I'm hoping to do my regular five pages. Though the muse is tending to want to play again--games, that is, not writing. I'll let you know how I go :)

Shame there's no way to edit these things after they're posted--because I always find spelling goof after the fact. Hence the above deleted post. Anyway, here's that post. ANy spelling mistakes found after this will have to remain :)

'On tanks' means using waters tanks for your household water needs, rather than being connected up to a mains supply. The tanks are connected to the roofline of the house, and all water runoff goes into the tanks. When we lived on our farmlet up Sunbury, we used a 20000 gallon tank--which sounds a lot but wasnt. If we didn't get a whole lot of rain over the winter months, then we were getting water tanked in over the summer months. It was a pain in the rear.

and we're in no hurry to buy our new house. The good thing is, we own our current one, so we can just save until we find the perfect place. And actually, our current place is just about perfect, except for the fact there's not enough land for the dogs to run around in. (as the demolished state of our garden will attest. The furry one loves playing speedway through the shrubs--and the leaping lab unfortuantly follows. Hence the mottley looking shrubs and mud we currently have) :)
