It happened very suddenly in the end: Contracts exchanged on Tuesday and Completion next week. Incredibly exciting and a huge relief, for I was beginning to fear that the whole thing would fall through.
Numerous boxes arrived that same day – and I am now in the process of putting them together and filling them with my possessions. A back-breaking task, but an essential part of dismantling one home in order to create another.
Yesterday, I trawled the shops – both here and in Street Village – to find all those items I will need, and (much more fun!) to do the rest of the Christmas shopping.
Once I have moved, there will be a couple of weeks in which I will have no access to the Internet. An ill wind, I feel, since I am an obsessive personality and quite capable of churning out three or more blog posts a day. A break will, I suspect, revitalise me and refresh my writing.
Back to the packing now!
I will blog as and when I can over the next week or so…
