At last

We're sorted with the house. After a horrible week of much anguish & stress we finally exchanged contracts this morning & are completing & moving on Thursday. Our buyer has been 'difficult' to say the least & I just hope that I never meet him as I don't trust myself to be civil. However we've got the ultimate revenge as our neighbours erected their trampoline again on Friday so he can deal with the constant sound of springs & other noise from 7.30 a.m to gone 10 p.m. at the weekend & every weekday evening as well. They even bounce in the dark!

98% of the house is boxed up, numbered & colour coded (thanks to Knitterbelle for the tip) so hopefully the move itself will go without hitch. The dogs are now safely in kennels for a few days & Vince goes to rodent kennels tomorrow. DD is at school on the day & she's being brought to the house by a friend after school so at least we've got time to move everything without extra help.

After the fiasco that was Mothers Day DD has calmed down a lot. A few days later part of the cause was revealed & to be honest I think that everything just got too much for her. She's very excited about moving house & can't wait to 'help' unpack things over the Easter holidays.

Not sure when I'll be back but things are definitely looking up!

Good luck - looking forward to seeing photos when you get there. We have put in an offer on a new place too. We exchange hopefully next week then settlement will happen in a couple of months. I'm sooo looking forward to living in our own place again after nearly 4 years of renting.

Hooray - I'm glad you got moved at last, although it sounds horrendous! I had exactly the same problem with my shower (at least I met my new neighbours when I went round to see if they knew a plumber!).
