This Is NOT Goodbye...

...this is just an interruption.
I will be very busy over the next month or possibly longer. There is a glimmer of hope that my house sale is going through, so I am packing my bags... the biggest bag holds an awful lot of Estee Lauder products... and my hair straighteners.
I'm not sure where I am moving to yet... so watch this space... I will be around sporadically and will try to keep up as best I can with blogs. Hopefully everything will be done and dusted by Christmas and me and my Smeg fridge freezer will end up in the same place.

Ohh..am I first? Congrats on the possible sale. My chums up the street have theirs on the market for more than a year.

Wow, that was awkward said...

This is NOT goodbye back at ya then.

Leah said...

Yes, my dear, that's pretty much where I'm at too (the "this is not goodbye") with the exception of the house sale--

good luck with all the moving about and things!

I will see you soon I hope!

xo

Ginro said...

Noooooooooooooooo!
What are we going to do without our favourite prim and proper rock chick???
Hopefully see you around Christmas then *sigh*

xl said...

Well, best wishes on the big move. Just remember: chin out, tits up!

rhinestonecatboy said...

Oh Ms Blue, I shall miss reading of your comings and goings. good luck with the house sale malarky.

Kerrie said...

I will miss you hun, even it if is Au Revoir.

eroswings said...

How exciting! Cheers to new adventures and the beginning of something new and wonderful!

Good luck with the packing and finding a great place to start the new chapter in your life!

Things do happen for a reason!

Take Care!

savannah said...

*fingers crossed for an easy sale*
how exciting, sugar! packing can be fun! ;~D xoxoxo

y'all know where we are when yer ready! xoxoxoxox

Whirlochre said...

I feel like my heart has been ripped out and crushed under the feet of a gang of hoodies wazzed out on max strength cider.

How will I survive without you? What joy can I possibly exact from my sorry spin on this doomedest of orbs as I scurry through darkened streets lit only by newspaper hoardings proclaiming David Cameron's crapness?

Oh, Scarlet, though I'm truly glad for you, and your leap into a brave new future where the emerging dawn may play upon the pinky finish of your Smeg like the dancing cartoon prawns of an unfeasably feelgood Disney movie, I'm nonetheless (selfishly) gutted that the coming winter will be festooned with less of your charmingly dispensed smut.

I'm reminded of the scene in Pulp Fiction when the gimp is sprung from the trunk.

Ulp

What am I going to do?

Kevin Musgrove said...

And who's going to be keeping us all on the straight and narrow, stopping us from lapsing into simple smut?

Madame DeFarge said...

Phooey. What shall we do without you? I shall miss you and no mistake. Good luck with the house stuff and everything else. Hope you move somewhere flash and fab, much like your good self.

It'll be quiet without you.

PI said...

Dooooooo keep in touch. It's so sad when people drift away. Like Leonardo Decrapio in Titanic and we're left blue and cold and getting bluer and colder.

Eryl Shields said...

This is so exciting, everyone should move every five years or so, there's nothing like it for putting a bit of colour in the cheeks. You are going a little further than I would, not actually knowing where you are moving to, but you are young so will, no doubt, find a palace just crying out for someone with a sack of Estee Lauder. I guess, if you get stuck you could always bed down in your Smeg for a day or two. XXX

underOvr (aka The U) said...

Ms. Scarlet,

Your absence will simply increase my fondness.

Best wishes on the house sale and subsequent move; I'll look for your return.

U

Lulu LaBonne said...

How exciting - I love the idea of new pastures and all that.

I'm missing you already but looking forward to your return

oo

mago said...

Ach ... hope you can drop by now and then ...

Clyde said...

Miss Scarlet
Ah, a suitcase under one arm and Smeg under the other and away you go.
The house next door is vacant, so if you like the sea, there is an option
I love the idea of someplace new but hate moving
Good luck--we will hear from you from some exotic place

mapstew said...

Scarlet; "I only know that I love you".
Rhett; "Well, that's your misfortune!"

Donn said...

I am happy for you..sort of..

but surely you know that your sunny disposition makes this the biggest cyber-watering hole on my travels and I love seeing so many great people in one place.

I luvs ya because you are "perpetually" funny and interesting and ever-so-cheeky with your sly innuendo scarletisms....
do be sure to stay in touch.

I miss you already :(

MJ said...

How am I supposed to manage Beast on my own?

This is completely unacceptable.

Grump said...

I hope your move all goes well. Catch as and when you are around.
Mark x

Gadjo Dilo said...

Yes, congrats on the possible sale of your house, hope you find somewhere great to move to!

Chairman Bill said...

Negative equity?

Dave said...

Whirlochre said exactly what I'd intended to say.

I expect you'll end up moving to Norfolk. It's the place to whichtw the creme de la creme of the blogworld rises.

jekandhyd said...

Ha! Police getting a bit close, eh? Yes, you may claim that sack contains Esther Lauda (wasn't she a racing driver anyway?) but if the sniffer dogs get a bit too close the game would be up. Now we see the truth behind your recent postings of "revisiting" the 60s, 70s and 80s

Don't worry though. I know a bolt hole you can use in the City until the heat is off. The decor is quite eclectic thought and most of the lights in the place are red. I'd be very happy to meet you there and instruct you on my technique with Mocow Mules

Until then, good luck and a speedy sale

I wanted to marry Peter Cook :(

Godspeed and best of luck with everything and don't lose the Estee Lauder products x

KAZ said...

Fingers crossed for the move.
Don't get too stressed.
You can borrow my IKEA catalogue and back copies of 'Elle Decoration'.

fairyhedgehog said...

Exciting times! I hope it all goes smoothly for you.

Autolycus said...

Phil'n'Kirsty would be proud of you. Who knows, there might be a book in your travels with a fridge (oh damn, someone's already done that). We shall just have to contain ourselves until you're back: all the best till then.

WV= "tuffix". I'm sure that means something appropriate.

Macy said...

Damn I just found this blog too....but is a whole three months not a wee bit excessive to move a Smeg freezer?

Scarlet-Blue said...

Hello! Thank you for all your comments.
Crikey I'm knackered. And now I have a buggy thing. I'm hoping it's just feeling rough after having a drink... but it does feel buggy and I am a hypochondriac.
Sxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

mutleythedog said...

You are welcome to move in with me - there is space between the 'breakfast bar' and the 'kitchen units' - and your friend the freezer could stand on the landing...

:: Wendy :: said...

Oh, that's lots of excitement and goings on, I will look forward to your dropping by with tales of the goings on and your fridges progress, best wishes...

fairyhedgehog said...

Take some vitamin C and if you've got them vitamin D and zinc.

I hope you get over whatever it is soon.

Morton Shadow said...

Scarlet, Scarlet Scarlet...[...decants cheap Israeli champers back into the bottle for re-refridgerating and attempts to get all those oyster shells closed again...]

Oh well, it can wait...

;?

Hope the move goes well me dear

EmmaK said...

oh darling come back soon. You are my favorite lady of leisure.

Roses said...

*sniff*

*wail*

What am I supposed to do now?

*mutters*

Good luck with the move...and HURRY BACK!

I'll miss seeing you about.

CyberPete said...

Oh my! Exciting stuff.

Remember to keep me updated on where you move. I think I still owe you a letter.

Was thinking about sending you a postcard from here in San Francisco but I'm so tired I don't think I'll make it out of my room today. I don't know what's wrong with me.

mago said...

A bug bite you - that explains a lot!

~Static~ said...

Good luck, and hope to see you soon.
Btw, I've got plenty of rustic style furnishings in a variety of faux finishes for sale if you care to redecorate the new digs.

Have a gander:

BEAST said...

Dammit Miss Scarlet , I suspect you are really running away with an iterant dyson saleman , having become bewitched by his flexible crevice tool.and manouverable ball.....shocking

Scarlet-Blue said...

Who said 'Negative Equity'? Tut! - Cheeky Chairman... I am thinking about buying some rustic furnishings from Mr Static and heavens above, I may move in with Mr Mutts.
Hello and Welcome to Macy!
A lady of leisure, indeed I should be Emmak, but I keep having to clear up the hideous mess that Mr Beastie makes everywhere...

Ha ha ha... my house just had a dreadful survey... so I may be stuck here for sometime. I don't know if I'm coming or going.

Sxxx

CyberPete said...

I thought you were going to move in with me?

I'm sorry to hear about the dreadful survey, I hope everything works out for you

Scarlet-Blue said...

Pete: Do you like cocoa and rum? It's my new bedtime drinky... so when I come to Denmark there must be room for a crate of rum.
Sx

CyberPete said...

I love that! A lumumba isn't it?

I used to drink hot chocolate with mint Baileys.

I'm sure we can fit in a crate of rum.

Daphne Wayne-Bough said...

In order never to get lost, dispense with direction. These wise words were written to me by a man in prison, so it is up to you whether you take them at face value or not. I hope all turns out well with your house. But hold on to that fridge at all costs.

Come back.

brown eyed girl said...

Good luck with the new adventures, we look forward to reading all about where that fridge and Estee Lauder bag ends up..
Ive got to try that rum and cocoa tonight.
Keep smiling and send us a blog when you can.

mutleythedog said...

It would be good to have like 100 + comments on this post...

mago said...

So let's work on it, Mutley!

Kevin Musgrove said...

wouldn't we just be encouraging her to keep saying she's off?

Kevin Musgrove said...

much better to have away with all those bottles of Babycham in her linen cupboard

Scarlet-Blue said...

Oi! You leave my Babycham alone!

Very good idea to get the comments up to 100! But if you want a job doing....

Scarlet-Blue said...

....you have to do it yourself...

Sxxxxx

mago said...

I misread "Babycham" (whatever that may be, something nasty?) for "babycam in her linen" ...

Daphne Wayne-Bough said...

Aw, come on Scarlie, stop mucking about. Get yer sax out and have a tootle along to Ian Hislop and his band. Don't leave us this way.

Crabbers said...

À bientôt, j'espère !

Madame DeFarge said...

My contribution to the 'welcome back' rug. Pity about the survey, but welcome your return.

Jimmy Bastard said...

I've left bread and milk for you in the fridge at the new hoose... I've also left a little something on the bed.

Sorry about that.

Borah said...

How exciting! Hope to see you back when life gets boring again!

mutleythedog said...

I fancy a Babycham

mago said...

Come back!

Kevin Musgrove said...

it occurred to me that if you were having to sit around the new kitchen waiting for the chocolate brownies you're baking for us all for the housewarming you'd need something to do.

Scarlet-Blue said...

Did I hear the word 'meme'? Thank you Kev. I like a good meme.
And Mr Jimmy has nicked all my bedclothes, so I better get up and do something.... soon...
Sx

Ponita in Real Life said...

Haven't you finished moving yet? We need details of the new digs, Scarlet!

xl said...

Please come back Miss Scarlet! I do so miss your posts and visiting comments.

I'll fluff your pillows ... if you like.

Scarlet-Blue said...

Oh Hai! Mr XL and Ponita, I will be back, it's just that everything is up in the air at the moment and I'm not sure what's going on. One minute I'm packing, the next everything is on hold - I'm stuttering along like a limerick with too many full stops. It's not good.
But I might do the meme. I like memes....
Sx

Kevin Musgrove said...

"everything is up in the air"?

ooh matron!

Kevin Musgrove said...

blog approval on? has somebody been stupid again?

Ginro said...

You're just trying to get 100 comments now aren't you Miss Scarlet, lol?

Whirlochre said...

Every time I move, I seem to lose something vital, like a hairdryer.

Crabbers said...

A smacker of passage !

A ne pas comptabiliser

Scarlet-Blue said...

Oops, I forgot that I had comment mod on for posts over 2 weeks old.
Sxx

Scarlet-Blue said...

I have altered my comment mod thingy... We WILL get to 100!!!
Sx

savannah said...

so, how close are we? xoxox

savannah said...

now i see, this makes 81!! xoxox

Madame DeFarge said...

And I get to be 82 - always a favourite number of mine. Hope all is going well in a grown up frustrating type of way.

Scarlet-Blue said...

I will check in at 83 and say hi!
I am so frustrated by this house non-movement that I may well start blogging again... I thought it was all coming together nicely... and then it all fell apart.... but not completely. And I'm still looking for a house to rent...
Sx

mago said...

84 and still counting ... That's a pity that your plans did not work out the ewway they were meant to. Are you living under a bridge right now?

Scarlet-Blue said...

Mr Mags: I am still in my grade II listed shed with my stray cat... talking of which, what do I do with the stray cat? Do I try to take him with me? He's getting tamer by the minute.
Sx

xl said...

86th!

Let's continue this thread until we get the count to 200! xXx

Kevin Musgrove said...

Could you not sell the house to the stray cat?

Kevin Musgrove said...

I honestly wasn't trying to inflate the commentary: word ver said I'd got it wrong first time but still published...

Scarlet-Blue said...

Mr XL: I think I shall continue to do secret mini posts in this comments box, 200 eh??? We migh get there by next Christmas.

Kev: The stray cat is cool... he's very fussy and reckons that my home resembles a dog kennel.
Google has been playing up for me today. It's gone a bit silly.

Crabbers said...

The 100ème gain a perfumecacharel !

Donn said...

How do you do
I'm # 92
when we reach 200
I'll say toodle-loo

Daphne Wayne-Bough said...

Oi! *taps on window* Scarlet! This will make you laugh.

Are we there yet?

Crabbers said...

Yes! Yes! We hang on as one ... Crab-lou ... No !...Potatoes in the frying pan !!
The 99th earns a muted trumpet ( unusable )...

(* baiser Florentin *)

Scarlet-Blue said...

Crabbers: Well there you go! I'm looking for secret places!
Eh bien voilà! Je cherche des lieux secrets!
Sx

Scarlet-Blue said...

Mr Coppens: We'll never say toodle-loo, because I'll never reach 200.
I am 96 and doing this for kicks.

Daphne: I love that clip!
Are you saying my blog is like groundhog day?! Point taken!

Crabbers: Chips and trumpets?
Chips et trompettes?

Sx

Clyde said...

Ok, we've had enough of this game, can we play another one now ?

Scarlet-Blue said...

Clyde: Tut tut...!
Sx

xl said...

99th!

Two more Miss Scarlet and it's all downhill to 200!

Roses said...

Hah! 100!

Yay me!

When, o when will you return to blogging?

Scarlet-Blue said...

Mr XL and Roses: Many thanks! 100!!!! Do I get a prize?
Sx

Kevin Musgrove said...

I'll buy you a drink next time you're up.

Scarlet-Blue said...

Kev: Define 'up'?!
Sx
...but, yes, that would be very nice.

Dave said...

Ah, I see you reached your century while I was away.

savannah said...

105? i was just checking to see if y'all were still alive...xoxoxo

(i do miss you, sugar!!)

Scarlet-Blue said...

Dave: Yep, with no leg overs.

Savvy: I will be back soon... but I still haven't moved!!! This is the slowest move I've ever done...

Sx
