For years now it has been our dream to buy a patch of land in Ireland and set up home there. Obviously in a house. Not a tent or treehouse or anything like that. I don’t think even I could manage that.
Now we’re getting restless. We feel we should stop talking and start doing. But first we need to get the house in order so that we can sell up. Then there’s the actual strain and stress of selling.
So when I came across The Happy Zombie’s post from a while back (ok, 2007 actually), talking about how the act of burying a statue of St Joseph upside down in your front yard helps you to sell up I thought that it’s worth a try. I printed off the pattern and with a view to killing two birds with one stone I thought it would also make a good Christmas present for Michael, who is more desperate to move than I am.
So here he is. St Joe a Go-Go, care of The Happy Zombie’s pattern.
Monica, if we’re still in this house in a years time I’ll be back to speak with you.
