On The Move



The ‘phone call from our solicitor came as we were driving home after visiting friends – “you’ve exchanged!”  We gave a little yelp of excitement but the feeling was more of relief than celebration.  We contacted the removals company without delay but Derek gave a big sigh and said “we’re fully booked all next week, it’s a busy time of year”.  Eventually he relented and they are sending a smaller van to do two trips first thing Monday morning to put our furniture into storage.

I shall feel sad saying goodbye to this flat.  It’s been a good place to us over the ten years since we bought it.  We have good neighbours and it’s a pleasant area to live in but toy town feels very noisy and crowded in summer and I’m craving for more space and quiet.  We shall head back to France on Tuesday and enjoy the remainder of the summer out there.  If all goes to plan we will be heading towards a new life in Lincolnshire in the autumn.

Here we go again!

  5. Ihope all goes well with your move. I envy you moving to Lincolnshire - my homeland. But I do firmly believe one should never go back, so I am settled here in the Dales. Good luck.

  8. My late father always said that the best word in the English language was 'SOLD'; I think he was right. Well done.
