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!
