Le Retour de Stéphane et la tondeuse volante

Those of you who've been reading for a while will remember the shenanigans when the suave Stéphane came round to value the house and I was caught in a delicate position and my booty exposed.

Weeellll.... he's coming round again on Wednesday at 10am to take some more photos. So what I want you all to do is, wherever you are in the blogosphere, at 9.30am French time is to send me lots of telephathic messages to say 'Get your knickers on VLiF'. It'll be a bit like one of Uri Geller's worldwide cutlery bending extravaganzas except that we'll be willing my knickers into position rather than bending fork tines out of theirs. Don't forget. I'm relying on you all.

One more thing. Can you keep a secret? You mustn't tell the CH though. No, I haven't take a French lover. Blimey, talk about one track minds you lot!

You remember the lawnmower, the Green one. Well I was mowing the lawn yesterday and well, I did say it only has two speeds, MACH II and stop and I also did mention that our house is built onto the side of a steep slope. Well, the lawn goes right up to the edge at one point so you can guess what happened. The mower went over the edge in true 'Thelma and Louise' style, narrowly avoiding taking me with it.

I got it back up again. It wasn't easy and my back's a bit sore today but the lawn looks nice!

Just squeeze those gluteus maximii tight VLiF and hang on to those knickers at all costs, I'll be thinking of you! Best of luck with the house.
