Yikes, I am moving next week to the flat in Milan, where I have not yet lived...its smaller than we are used to and over furnished, so I foresee a lot of bruises. Unfortunalety the furniture in the rented place is not antique or beautiful, maybe it would be worth the physical damage if it were beautiful. :)

Vera, unless you are willing to brave -40C windchill do NOT move to the prairies. Teepees are notoriously drafty and you would lose those poor battered toes overnight.

I feel for you. There is always a bruise on my somewhere from bashing into things. I haven't yet broken a toe, but I've smashed them badly enough to be able to surmise that broken would be excruciating. OWIE!

Oh my! I remember those days! We bought a 1800's house when our kids were in 2nd grade,and kindergaten! Tin ceilings and all! Needed work but we were young that was ok! So we started! I swallowed so much plaster dust I am sure that's why I have stomach trouble today.We did a great job but by the time we got it finished,the kids had left home,and here we were with a huge old house that needed redecorating! Everything we had done was out of style! We sold it and bought a small ranch w/inground pool,2 1/2 car garage and redecorated it! I really think we bought the pool and garage!
Now as I look back, are we ever happy with what we have? I think not! Never buy a house in upstate NY unless it is heated and you can afford to have someone care for it.
Now we are retired and live in a 1000 sq. ft. apartment in NC.Very happy! No snow,have a beautiful pool and anything we need or want, we make a phone call! No cutting grass, flowers always beautiful,and it's close enough to order out dinner "delivered"! Nana

superglue?? or an exorcism?

I think I like the idea of combat boots ever so much better.

I may just have to cast a spell over the furniture, myself

VeraBlue I know what it is like to break a toe. I have a habit of running through my condo at a fast pace and I keep hitting my toe on the botton of my living room table.

I went to Kaiser and found out that they cannot put a cast on a toe. The last time I did it to my big toe and they bandaged it for me. It took months to heal and I was lucky that it happened in the summer so I could wear thongs.

Good luck.

Those bargains can sometimes still be had..... They are beautiful to look at and actually cost a fortune... People knock on the doors and ask the owners if they'll sell...!

The whole village of Veryan is very pretty, deep in the Cornish Roseland and with the sea only 10 minutes away. This site has some more pictures of the village and the roundhouses http://www.kitt.net/veryan.html
