C Day

After 3 sleepless nights and erratic eating habits (toast at 11pm because we’d forgotten to have an evening meal) ,  the phone rang this morning and it was our Estate Agent responding to our emails.
It would appear that ANOTHER issue with our buyers was that they have a holiday booked for 21st June, already rescheduled twice, which was why they could not give us the three weeks we were hoping for.

Anyway, a compromise has been reached AND WE HAVE SOLD!!

As the old 1960s kiddies (3-90  years of age) TV show used to say:

thunderbirdsFanfare, drum roll, whatever.
Anything can happen in the next half hour!

t 1The first thing we did was get in the car and take our contracts up for witnessed signature ready for exchange today or first thing tomorrow if our buyer can’t get to his solicitor by 5.30 to do the same.
t 2On the way, we did the second thing which was to ring the Estate Agents dealing with our Prime Target for purchase, and put in a silly offer to test the water. When they’d finished laughing, we upped it (twice) but it is still not enough so we’ve told them we’ll think about it and call them tomorrow (all part of our Master Plan) .t 3The third thing was to get back in time for the charity wagon collecting our unwanted furniture for midday ( we had been advised of a time frame of between 12 and 3.30 depending on other collections) . We pulled up on our drive at 11.59, and they arrived just after 12.20.
If someone were to break into our house now they would feel so sorry for us, they’d leave us things!t 4Next was to sort out some storage.
Enquiries had already been made and a firm selected. A phone call today confirmed they have suitable storage available which will take my car and all our possessions, well within our budget.
Even better was that they offered us the private hire of a man and trailer to help us move, simply because they appeared to like us!
t 5Tomorrow, after exchange has been confirmed and a deposit secured (our safeguard to ensure no 11th hour withdrawal without penalty) , I will be on the phone to our utility companies to advise them of our completion date, and also filling out the paperwork to have our mail redirected to a trusted friend.

All in all, it has been a pretty good day.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
