Still not moved!

And frankly I am starting to think it's not going to happen before Christmas now, but hey.  Our solicitor vanished on us. A new solicitor respawned, but we get the impression that the new solicitor is doing the work of two (or maybe six, who knows) and though we keep getting emails saying things will be done by.... they are not.

Today some people came to see our Cornwall house, and made an offer but the offer was very small, so no.  The previous people who made a nicer offer that we couldn't accept because they hadn't sold their previous house have now sold it, but changed their mind about which house to buy. (the people before that who made an offer also changed their minds...) This house-moving lark is rather wearing, and we haven't even got to the actual moving bit yet.

However!  I did make bread with my sourdough starter and it was FABULOUS so I'm making some more.  I also like the fact that instead of spooning out half the starter and throwing it away when I feed it, I can spoon it into a frying pan and make crumpets.  I had sourdough crumpets this evening with a sauce made by chucking some frozen berries, a spoonful of sugar and a knob of butter into the pan with the cooking crumpets, and will definitely do that again.
