It’s creeping in……………

Another reblog for you:

Excitement that is.
I have been on the phone to three people today.
The first was the garage in response to a text message reminder about the car going in for MOT and Service on Thursday.
I think I spoke to Bimbo of the Year last week as I asked for this to be done at the garage where we bought the car, but she appeared to have booked us in forty miles away according to the initial confirmation message.
I rang and spoke to her again (fortunately or unfortunately, you pick) and she said she would book us in at our garage of choice.
Imagine my surprise today when it stated THE WRONG GARAGE on the text message.
Rather than go through the service option on the call menu, I waited to be put through to the garage itself, so forgive me for doubting you Miss BotY, as he confirmed we were indeed booked in with him and it was just a hitch from the call centre messaging system.

On to the second phone call.
We are going up to Lincolnshire tomorrow for me to see our new home.
I am certain I will love it, after all, I saw it on the internet and arranged the viewing for Hubby last week (yes, just 8 days ago). The Estate Agent will meet us at the property, so I can measure up for curtains and check out a few things to help decide what to take up with us on the first trip when we collect the keys.

The third was to the solicitor.
Ever hopeful, I asked if there was anything for us to sign yet as we would be in the area tomorrow.
The good news is that one of the searches has come back, and they are waiting for the others, together with the paperwork from the vendors regarding fixtures and fittings.
I’ve said we’ll be available on the mobile should they need to see us, but I don’t want to be too pushy as the vendors might get p155ed off with us!

It will be a long day tomorrow, but at least we can share the driving, and I can take some pictures of our des-res to be! Maggie can also test drive the grass for pee-ability.

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.

    (Sigh) No matter where in the world we live it seems we all have to deal with the same stupidity, negligence and people who just don’t give a damn. I cannot tell you how often I go through similar situations myself and how often my friends share their similar experiences with me. Is it something in the air?

  3. I’m as excited as you are! You have made us all feel like we are a part of this! I’m expecting to be invited to the house warming! 🙂

    Good luck with your move. Which part of Lincolnshire are you moving to, if you don’t mind me asking? I live in Lincoln. 🙂

    • Really? Not too far from you then, on the coast up the road from Skeggie!

      • afairymind says:

        Some of the coastal towns out there are really nice. We’ve always preferred Mablethorpe to the very commercialised Skeggie.

      • When we lived in Lincolnshire before (2007-2014) we’d often go to Skeggie for a day out. You are right though, it is very commercialised, but out of season, much more in line with our way of thinking! We almost bought a property on the main road, but heavy traffic as well as no parking for visitors put us off.
