I have purchased the ticket! To honor the traditions in Clare, I officially move house on a Friday in mid-September. I have heard that some eastern counties consider it unlucky to begin a journey on Friday, and I suspect this is due, in part, to the Good People being out and about on this day. “Don’t be drawing their attention.” Since I have a familial relationship with my Neighbors, I have to agree with those in Clare (the fairest of all counties). For to travel with such a host must be lucky indeed!

Folklore aside, something about having that ticket “in hand” made the move more real. I was speaking with Himself just after purchase and we both went a bit mad at the thought. Oh, how wonderful it will be! :gulp: Better finish packing!
