Adrenalin rush or what??????

Today started off as a nice ploddy day.
We had it planned, blood test for Hubby first thing, get my prescription filled second thing, walk the dog third, then into town to do some banking business, and maybe have lunch.

Item one was a breeze, no problems there.
Getting my prescription filled would take about half an hour so we decided to do part three and come back.

old bridgeWe had a lovely walk. It was such a beautiful day, the birds were in full chorus and we saw several regulars to say goodbye to, including Hinge and Bracket. If we hadn’t seen them today, we would have missed them altogether, and I would have been disappointed if we had. They have asked us to keep in touch, so I’ve added their address to my book and promised post cards.

I put my notice up, a simple message:

Goodbye to all our doggie friends and owners.
It has been a pleasure to know you.

I found some glow-in-the-dark paw print stickers in a drawer, so put them round the edge. There’s a little note to the forestry commission guys saying they were included in our farewell and would they be kind enough to leave it up for a few days 🙂

car park entrance
Driving into town, we got a phone call.
It was a courtesy call from the Estate Agents saying that everything had completed OK, and wishing us all the best.
To say Panic set in is the under-statement of the century, and I nearly dropped the phone.

panicI told him completion was not today but next Tuesday.
He seemed surprised.
I was terrified.
Hubby nearly crashed the car.

Our stuff doesn’t go into storage until tomorrow, and we both had visions of our buyers being parked on our drive when we got back demanding to move in 5 days early!

It turned out that our Estate Agent had got the wrong property address completing today and called us by mistake.
The damage was done though.
Gone was our melancholy mood as once again someone had got their facts wrong and we were on the receiving end of potential chaos.

First thing we did when we got home was dig out the letter confirming that our completion was indeed the 17th.
Second thing was ringing our solicitor to check that there hadn’t been an early transfer of money. Nothing had hit our account anyway when I went into the bank.
Third was put the kettle on for a calming cuppa.
Fourth was trying to find the brandy and failing!

nervous wreck
Poor Hubby is still shaking.

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! We have recently lost our beloved dog 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, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. 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.

    This is in response to the popular Friday Flashback many bloggers are participating in.
    6 years ago we were in the throes of moving home. Selling the cottage had turned out to be a nightmare. It’s all logged here in various posts.
    This was the icing on the cake…………….. NOT!!!
