The perfect man to open (our) doors
I'm just back from London after spending a couple of days in Westminster.
Whilst there, I had the good fortune to bump into Stuart Andrew, the excellent Member of Parliament for Pudsey.
I've known Stuart for quite a while and have written about him here before.
After exchanging pleasantries, I told him about our new house in Guiseley which, I am delighted to say, is also in his constituency.
However, what I didn't realise was that Stuart also lives in Guiseley - a fact he quickly mentioned.
And this immediately gave me an idea.
We expect to have the keys to our new abode in the next eight weeks or so, and certainly in plenty of time for the summer.
And, when you move into a new house, you obviously have to mark the event with a do.
The long and the short of it is that our housewarming do will be a barbecue - with the food only really forming the starter.
Because it will be followed by what I trust will be a first in our soon-to-be new neighbourhood, when Mr Stuart Andrew MP officially opens our house.
Does anybody know where I can buy a big ribbon?
