OHHH!!!! How exciting! Keep us posted...

I could have sworn there was a way to anchor images to text boxes/paras in ID because I thought I did that when I was working on layout for an equine magazine...I think I may have some of the files somewhere--I'll check and get back to you...

You and I last moved at just about the same time. I have been wanting to move — maybe you will give me the courage.

Pictures?

Yes, it is exciting. Even better is the fact that we're not moving but buying a second home. That means we get all the fun of a new house without the hassle of packing everything up.

Ahh. Except now you have to keep two houses up. And furnish them. And remember whether you purple socks are in the other house.

But I am sure you guys will cope.

No, not in North Wales - or any part of Wales. It's in East Sussex. It's about a five-hour drive between the two so we probably won't be going just for week-end trips.

As Terrie says, lots of furniture to buy. We're buying the furniture in mid-Wales. There's a shop that offers free delivery throughout the UK and they've said that they're happy to drop into Llanwrtyd on the way and collect some furniture that we want taken to the new house.

Less risk from arsonists there, I imagine!

My thoughts exactly. Not sure of the current campaigns of the Sussex nationalists!

I think they're all preoccupied with the new South Downs National Park.

We're in the Sussex Weald which is much prettier.
