House Sold

My house sale went unconditional today and settlement is in four weeks on 17th February so it will be all go between now and then.

Doug is working on the finishing touches for the new cat run to keep Kim safe today and will then start work on painting and enlarging the lounge.

So I will be moving from this


to this



On the right is a deck off the lounge and Doug will incorporate this into the lounge - something he had always intended to do.  The house was built for the local constable in the days when there were  such things.  Next to the front door was a cupboard where all his "police items" were stored.

    1. Yes, before the moving is all the work Doug wants to do on his house. Four weeks will fly.

  2. Wonderful news Susan, and so fast. I guess you have already done a lot of sorting, packing, and partly moving. So many good wishes to you both. Maybe you will take a few favourite plants as well, and I hope your weather is warmer than what we had this morning.

    1. Yes, a lot still in boxes following the redecoration and every time a car goes from here to Doug's without Sophie in the back there are boxes or pots etc moved. Lovely and cool here today - it has been 29 - 31 for what seems ages and finally yesterday a shower of rain but I see cracks in my lawn where I have never seen them before.

      I hope you and Hugh are doing O.K.

    1. Yes, it is amazing how stressed I was feeling with the sale being conditional. A weight has been lifted from my shoulders.

  8. It must be so exciting to move house, we have lived in our Maisonette since 1965 and probably will never move until we pop our clogs, lol

    1. Wow, that is the year I moved to New Zealand. Don't know about moving being exciting but I am looking forward to the next stage of my life - a lot to do in the meantime though.
