We are currently in Lincolnshire checking out properties over a radius of around 30 miles of where we used to live.
We are staying in a B&B in Boston which is dog friendly, clean, comfortable and reasonably priced. Our room is on the ground floor, and has tea making facilities, a shower en suite and multi channel TV.
We were up at 5.30 this morning, and by the time we’d packed, sorted out the dog, had breakfast and left the house clean and tidy for MSM when she returned this afternoon, we didn’t get on the road until 6.50.
We arrived here at 10.20, after some 157 miles, which included a half hour potty break for mutt and adults, plus a much needed walk around and drink (water, and 2 teas).
Our room was ready for us so we could offload our gear and then go into town to sign on with as many estate agents as we could remember being there.
We were given details of just one property in our price range, did a drive by, and tried to arrange a viewing for this evening, or any other evening as it’s local.
No chance. So that has been put on the back burner until after tomorrow to view later in the week if necessary before we go back.
Our first appointment was cancelled because the property has been sold. We hope that’s not a bad omen. Still, it was in the middle of nowhere and needed a lot of work doing on it, hence the price of £110K.
Never mind, we have 8 viewings tomorrow, four so far for Wednesday, then 2 and counting for Thursday as we haven’t quite finished exploring that area for possibilities on the ‘net.
We’re tired, but optimistic.
The wifi here is on a par with the marina, so we are back to disconnections, time outs, and limited service. I will try and post every day, and if I can, add a few challenges which I can prepare off-line and load later.
Maggie bless her, is shattered. Anyone would think she’d walked all the way.
The mattress is softer than the one at MSM’s so she’s in her element as it moulds to her shape and she can snuggle in. As she does so, like now, she is twitching contentedly in her sleep and each little pulse sees her legs stretching further and further out, thus taking up more and more room, pushing Hubby closer to the edge!
