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:
THUNDERBIRDS ARE GO!

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 which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth for jelly babies or fruit pastilles. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
