All Change

Hubby and I have spent the majority of the day (bar walking the dog and preparing meals) checking out the internet for more properties.
We have discovered that the ones we had eliminated are surprisingly still available, as is the one we discovered had a lease on it, and also the Gut Job where the vendor is holding out for the full asking price on a property that needs £20-£30K of work to make it liveable.

We have had contact from one of the newer estate agents trying to get us to view a semi-detached bungalow and a 4 bedroom detached house with no garden or parking.


They’re not listening!

I have had a response about the last property we saw on Tuesday to advise that the vendor accepted an offer from the people who came to view after us. Shame, as we were tempted, but it was too big for us really and I would never fill all those kitchen cupboards.

So, next week we are sort of taking time out and going away for a few days.
Our intention is to cover a large area where we know prices are cheaper, but there is no way we can do the journey in one day. By being away, we will also have the option of evening viewings, so should be able to see a lot of properties (all of which will of course be documented here in my blog).
We have booked a room in a B&B at a truly reasonable cost and nothing extra for the dog. Some places charge almost as much as a single occupant for a mutt!
We’ve stayed there before, the rooms are comfortable and clean, and they do a totally brilliant breakfast.

If we find nothing there, once back home we will need to regroup and weigh up other options.


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.

  1. I am always surprised at how much places charge to have a dog in the room! We do regularly pay it, though, as boarding Choppy is often even more expensive. Having a dog definitely comes with some expenses!

    Glad you said you’ll be documenting!
