The cough/cold that has been plaguing me since the weekend has finally won, and I'm off work today. So entertain me and make me better.

Oh, I'm still here. It's just that nobody's posted any memes lately that I've felt worth responding to, and life's been... uninteresting. As far as uninteresting with an adorable 4-month-old daughter can get.

Work's work.

Home's home. At least I've finally sold that waste-of-time flat, my experiment with the property ladder getting to the first rung before I start to get giddy and fell off. Which is a shame, because had I made the right choices back in 1999, when I bought the place, I'd probably have been sitting on something in far more saleable condition, with enough bedrooms that we wouldn't have had to move out of it in the first place, and whose freehold wasn't held by a penny-pinching mega-bureaucracy like Freshwater.

But I didn't, and what's the point of dwelling on the past now? To be honest, what's galling is that with the money in the bank from the sale of the flat, with the property market as it is, I'd still have to spend pretty much everything on a deposit and also take out a back-breaking mortgage just to pay for anywhere half-decent. Why would I want to do that? To save on rent? To move to somewhere a little less convenient? Especially when I'm not even sure if I'll still be living in the UK in 12 months' time. Darn.
