Still no exchange on the flat!

It is almost half way through May and we still haven’t exchanged. The GR and I got close to breaking point recently and decamped to Worthing to be soothed by The Grandad, who cooked us breakfast every morning and plied us with wine every evening. Unfortunately I was so tired I fell asleep sitting up on the white sofa, with my glass of red wine in hand and wearing a white broadanglais frock neither are now unblemished.

I had to visit the Belle Mere yesterday. After a protracted silence, I felt it best to reach out with an email and got the reply ‘I haven’t seen Erbie for three weeks’, so I ran up there with him yesterday. He had a lovely time, she lets him do whatever he demands, which led to missing the usual nap time and general over excitedness, this has put him out of kilter and he woke before 5am this morning. The flat and the area (to which we will be moving) looked nice. As I walked along the old railway track cuffed in lacy, Cow-parsley and Hawthorn in full blossom, I came to a clearing overlooking the City, and I thought to myself, I’m a country girl at heart and I love living in the city so suburbia is the best of both worlds surely? No, it just mucking suburbia.

It looks like it may be slightly sunnier and we are going to meet the lovely Harridan in the park, so today we will be having a nice day.

Hang on in there. Hopefully exchange will come soon. Buying / Selling a property is supposed to high up there on the list of most stressful things in life. I sold a flat recently and had soooo many sleepless nights. Ah Worthing. Where I met my Huzz for the first time - very fond memories.

I'm thinking of you, this has taken much longer than it should have done. Perhaps the sunshine today will help speed things up or if nothing else it might make the BM a little happier!
