Long Day

We were up at 5am, and on the road by 5.45.
We arrived at our destination just after 10, so as we weren’t due to meet the Estate Agent until noon, we had a look around the town.
We found they are as dog friendly there as they are here, and discovered a lovely little cafe where we could take Maggie inside.
We had one of their ‘small’ breakfasts, and it was heavenly. We also sampled their fresh homemade cakes which were equally divine and very reasonably priced.

The beach is literally up the road, and dogs are allowed on part of it all year.
Maggie discovered one of the three pet shops, dragging me inside as she sniffed the shelves, finally finding the ‘sausage’ box, and helping herself to 20p worth. Naturally we paid up for her pilfering, much to the amusement of the lad behind the counter as he rung up a box of her favourite biscuits too.
The people are friendly, many saying hello as we walked down the road, and we got a lot of smiles from those driving by the property as we waited for our appointment.
One lady stopped on her mobility scooter and welcomed us to the neighbourhood.

I can’t put pictures out until it’s officially ours, but I am pleased.
The basic design is similar to our property in Poole, though it is slightly smaller.
It has two bedrooms, bathroom, lounge, and a fitted kitchen with cooker, hob and extractor fan, with an integral fridge/freezer behind the door. I have asked about the washing machine, so you never know, they might be leaving that.
It’s perfect for us, and being a blank canvas, we can move in and put our mark on it at our leisure. I think we are going to be just fine.

The garden is plenty large enough for our veg patch, and a WASHING LINE!
Maggie gave it the pee seal of approval, so she has left her scent in the grass ready for when we move in.
Now we just have to wait.

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.

  6. Sounds like things are going well – and a washing machine? What will we do without stories of the laundry room and the issues with sharing machines with others?

    • I shall leave that to boaters, though I’m aware that several on the larger narrows and widebeams have machine of their own and it’s a fight for the dryer!

    Oh! Maggie’s not a kid, right? That would have been fine, too. Good luck! Found my way here because of the Picks of the Week on A Momma’s View.
