; Farewell

Busy couple of weeks.

Last November, my cousin's marriage fell apart. School romances don't always manage to get all the way to the alter, and Steph's didn't get much further than a couple of years after that.
For the past year, we've had her staying with us, living in the spare bedroom.

Today, she's preparing to go her own way. Having saved up over the past year, she's managed to find a decent apartment closer to work, and today's the day of the big move.

It's been, as you might imagine, somewhat hectic. She and her parents are having to shift practically half a house's worth of stuff, from the little bedroom, all the way to Wigan.
As I write this, she's still to come back for a few more things, and then...

.. it'll be back to just me and Mum again.

Definitely a different kind of year!


And then, just like a house from a Soap Opera, the bedroom won't be empty for long. My sister's packed in her job in Nottingham, found a new job in Liverpool, but will be staying with us over Xmas, until the new job is "ready"

Always something going on at JNKHouse!

If you've been enjoying my daily pen'n'paper puzzle generator, you might be interested in trying out the recently built Unfolded version, which can be played on a mobile device, giving endless hours of scribbling insanity.

...and now that I've figured out how to actually do that in a half decent way...
