This past week in short...

Saturday:  Went to a concert in London with hubby and friend (very good)
Sunday:  Drove to Cornwal ready for house hunting
Monday: Went to see FOUR houses.  Really liked ONE.  Put in an offer.  
Monday PM: Offer was declined
Tuesday:  That's that for now - will keep an eye out and go again in a few weeks.  Travel back from Cornwall
Wednesday PM: Hubby predicts we will hear from the agent before Saturday that they will accept our offer.  I find this incredibly hard to believe
Thursday 9am (ish): Agent phoned telling us that our offer was accepted
Thursday 9.15am:  I serioulsy burn the toast that was under the grill when the phone went... I went upstairs to tell hubby in my euphoria?!

Now need a bit more money - so definately need to sell both bikes (motorbikes)

Friday about 4.30:  Place freead for my bike
Friday 5.45: Man calls asking to come see bike, NOW.  Man drives up from Southampton
Friday 7.30:  Bike Sold, deposit paid, pickup arranged for next week!!!

Can you imgine the rollercoaster I have been on this week!.  But we have a HOUSE (provisionally)....

What a week and so exciting. So sorry we cant help you with your finances. It's a shame you have to sell your bikes.

And the excitement builds!!!!! How fun. I know it's a lot of work, but truly worth it in the end. Try to be more like my Robbin when you get packing. Weed out what you truly don't need and some of the maybe's, too! I can't believe some of the "stuff" I brought with the last move.

Hi Clare, Welcome to Pz! Hope you'll be very happy here. Did you catch Golowan? Thought I had your email address, but can't find it.... if you'd like any local info don't hesitate to ask...or if you'd like to meet for a coffee, whatever!
