Today I have the first group of Estate Agents coming through to check out the house.  'A' will be giving us the appraisal, but she is bringing her fellow agents along with her.  It's called a 'Caravan'... god knows why?

I expect them at 11 am ... so I've got plenty of time to get the beds made, rooms just 'so' and put the dogs in their crates and in the car.

Otherwise they will go nuts and bark the house down.  

ABOVE:  I'm happy with how the front of the house is presenting now.
Do you remember when we first bought this house?  It  had NOTHING in those gardens.  

We still have to do the waterblasting of the concrete and a few other bits 'n' bobs around the place, but basically it's ready.

Just as well ... cos I really am exhausted now.

Tomorrow I have another Estate Agent coming through, then I can actually RELAX... and find our new home.

Back to today... I better get a move on and make sure everything is spot on.


11.33 am:    And the estate agents from Cambridge Real Estate have been and gone.  Man they don't stay long... like... swoop in, swoop out.

ABOVE:  Was given this package... love the chocolate!  Nice touch.

Should see Alison on Friday night with her proposal/appraisal.

I'm now going to take myself out for a treat.  I think I deserve it.  Might be some fabric... and a nice lunch.

3.33 pm:  And I did indeed have a nice lunch.  With Lacy.  Then, instead of buying some fabric... I decided to get something I have been needing for quite a while now:

ABOVE:  My headphones, the ones I use ALL. THE. TIME on the computer are buggered.  Held together with Blu Tack no less!  And they are corded, so I'm literally 'attached' to the computer while using them.  Most annoying.
So, I went to Harvey Norman's and bought some Bluetooth ones.  NO CORDS.  NO BLU TACK.  

Now I just have to wait for Griffin to come and connect them up for me, cos I'm a bit daft when it comes to that sorta thing.

Oh well... looks like I might have to try and sort the headphones out myself.  *sigh*

Dinner tonight was humble sausages and veges.
With gravy... which made it yummy.

Cold tonight!  Got a jacket on and me blankie.  I could turn on the heat pump, but then I get too hot!  Can't win.

Staying up to watch Coronation Street... it's on so late nowdays!   Then bed.  Got another estate agent coming tomorrow afternoon.  Won't be much to do to get the house ready thankfully.

Time to sign off... catch ya tomorrow.

  2. Are you selling it with the pool in situ or is that going with you?

  3. Haha cambridge real estate lol herevis chocolate list your house with us

  4. mmmmm love Whittakers chocolate

  5. I'm curious as to the buying before you sell. Over here in Oz (well, Melbourne, at least) it is strongly advised NOT to buy before you sell in case you can't sell, don't get the price you need etc. Mind you, we've always ended up buying first because we fall in love with a place but oh, the stress waiting to sell and the fear we would end up in breach of contract.
    Glad to see you're treating yourself today. You deserve it.

    1. Any contract we sign on a new home would be conditional on ours selling.
