There I was...

...kiln on, torch aglow, glass wrapped...and the post lands on the mat! Okay, a quick pass of glass to kiln and find the post...
A letter from our solicitors with questions from our buyers ones...ones that have already been answered, but turning off the torch...making myself a strong cup of tea, I sat to write out detail by detail all the answers, and draw them a little plan of our plot. Deciding then I might as well stop, go shopping and take the completed letter to town...there went another day!
That was yesterday...today I've had one surveyor here, for the valuation...we wait to see what he decides...our survey report arrived too, and when read is nothing unexpected, you buy something four hundred years old and there's bound to be one or two things to do!
Tomorrow I have Mrs Buyer coming, she wants to measure up and check what's staying or going against the list we've already supplied. Our agent is hoping we might be all moved at the end of May...I think it'll probably be June, but the earlier the better for us.
I think the weekend is free...strangely. We've had some busy ones recently, and another busy one the bank holiday one...a wedding and the last game of the season...
Then, next Tuesday another surveyor visits, this one is the main one...I'm always nervous, I know my house isn't falling down or anything, but I still get nervous!
After that the lady whose house we're buying is off to the Ukraine for a holiday...maybe she'll sign something before she goes................
Sorry, I've just seen a funny...silly...sight...a neighbour who runs...a lot, just passed the front in his tee and shorts, lighting a cigarette...well, such is life...
Which reminds me, anyone running the London marathon this Sunday...good luck...you're a better person than me!
