This afternoon's entertainment was spending nearly my entire net worth for the privilege of paying large amounts of money to a bank for the rest of my life. But beautiful Coeur Croisé, aka Crossert Manor, is now ours. We've already moved in the first carfull of boxes (which looks gratifyingly lost in it), and begun the negotiations of precisely what goes where. After all the legal pain, now we get the fun part.
Exact date of the housewarming is still under discussion (msmemory has already run one poll, and will probably run another soon), but expect it in January or February. One of the main purposes of this place is to feel able to entertain and hold meetings again, and we're quite looking forward to it.
