This weekend I had the feeling that I was in a wrong film. I was sitting on a cloud and looked down to myself.

Cat Arthur's dead and the rush of potential buyers of our house, made me feel exhausted and I escaped to Nicole to change walls and at the same time I admired the new cat tree which Isis has gotten for her third birthday.

In the evening I looked for apartments on Internet just to know if there were a lot on the market which were suitable to us and fortunately there were. Our estate agent and friend had called telling me that there was a buyer and that it was sure to 99 %. It was a couple of Boston (!!!) who was interested in our house, apparently she was Belgian and he Italian and they had lived in Boston for a long time and wanted now to return home. A friend of them thanks Whatsapp filemed our whole house and explained what the lady on the other end was seeing.

I thought how wonderful new inventions are now you can visit a house sitting in Boston on your sofa and "walking" through a house in Belgium.

Sunday we were both exhausted and missed Arthur of course. We were both hanging around not really knowing what to do. Finally Nicole, Myriam and I decided to go to the cinema there was a very funny film called Papy sitter. It rained outside and it was cold so the ideal time for a funny movie when we were all in a lousy mood.

Fortunately we laughed a lot, it was the story of a 17 year old girl who had to do her High school  diploma. As the parents were away they had asked the two grandfathers to keep an eye on the girl and help her studiying. One grandpa was a Military and the other a Night club owner. You can imagine that they had not the same opinions of education.

So finally the day was safed and after a drink together in the Cinema bar, we returned home. Of course no Arthur was expecting me on the steps. It will probably last a while until I get used to that.

Your life must be so lonely without Arthur. It is a huge time of change for you. Good that you have close friends to help you through difficult times.

Mom is a realtor and knows the stresses of buying and selling quite well. Hope things work out for you with the buyer for your home and finding a new one for yourself.

I'm so very sorry about the loss of your Arthur. Big healing hug.

Moving is a stressful thing. It's all the stuff that you need to go though to find out what goes with you and what doesn't.

Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week, Gattina. Big hug. ♥

It's really great the potential buyer can have the tour of the house while they are far far away!
The film sounds very funny. Glad you had a good time.
It will take some time to adjust to life without Arthur. Sending hugs xo

Losing a furbaby and selling a house at the same time sounds like just too much. You are handling it all very well. Sending good thoughts your way.

It's a lot of stress all at once.
