strike three and you're out...

i know dear readers the scene of Tif brutally "beating" her 'poor paper donkey' so viciously with her wooden kitchen spoon maybe disturbing for some of you...

but if i told you at the time of "smashing" my birthday pinata that i was thinking about a certain 'seller' of a certain empty yellow house...


and that the aforementioned 'seller' has chosen to withdraw from a contract...



and that the said 'seller' will no longer be selling his lonely yellow house to us ...


i think you can understand why it only took three strikes to break the poor donkey's neck...
and the treasure,
ah yes the treasure...it was all a girl could ask for in life, chocolate and money...

looking again for the perfect house...(she knows it's out there somewhere) ~ Tif

Happy 39!

I had to read this post three times because I thought I must have misunderstood what you were saying. WTF?

Oh tiff - happy happy belated birthday! I am so sorry to hear about the yellow house - it brings to mind that ol saying - 'what's for you will no' go by you' ok even though I am scottish I cannot type in a scottish accent so you may imagine it said by someone like Dame Maggie Smith who would manage to say it with the perfectly lilting tone that it needs to make it sound heartfelt and genuine.

Love these photos!!

crap - i would have jumped up and down on the donkey....
so sorry about the house - it was not meant to be your home - your "real" new home is just waiting for you to find it....
i just hope it shouts loudly in your direction x

have a great weekend donkey beater with great hair.

Happy belated birthday, Tif! (The big 39 is lurking round the corner in February for me...) I am very sorry about the little yellow house, but I'll second Christine--I'm sure something even better is out there for you somewhere. Best of luck in the hunt!

I know how you feel and I hope, as it did for me, it will prove that you would have bought the wrong house once you are newly setteled into the right one!!!

I really like how Suzie Sews worded her comment. Nicely said! (And I hope it's true). :)
