And breathe ...

Finally – we are exchanging contracts this afternoon! It has taken an unbelievably long time. We signed our papers last Wednesday 20th. Then we went to our favourite hotel, Amerdale House in Arncliffe – highly recommended . We’ve been there year after year, and had booked this break well before we sold our house. No way were we going to cancel.

Good job we didn’t as it turned out, as we didn’t get a call to say everyone was ready to exchange until yesterday (a whole week after we’d signed). We tried to give ourselves four weeks (we still need to find somewhere to live after all!) but no-one could make that date, so we’ve agreed 19th August for completion. Which gives us three weeks to find somewhere to live, book removals, pack and all that other stuff.

I’ve booked some viewings of houses to let for Saturday. They are all available immediately, so hopefully we will like one of them (and manage to rent it before someone else does). Then we just have to move. Simple :)

But for now, the champagne is chilling in the fridge and we are going to get drunk. Let’s celebrate before we start panicking!
