Well today the estate agent rang to say that the buyers want to come round (again!) so that they can measure up. I know we have to co-operate and I really don't mind them coming but sometimes its aa pain to have strangers traipsing through the house!
I guess it all makes the fact that we are leaving our little home all the more real. We have lived here for 15 years and we have been so very happy in our humble little terraced house. I guess we should have moved a few years ago but this house has aways had 'good vibes' after all we are only the 3rd owners in over 120 years! It holds such precious memories for us like when we bought our first child home from hospital. I can still recall walking in to the living room holding this precious bundle and seeing the room filled with flowers from the family. Our daughter was born here (on the dining room floor) and our beloved dog was bought here as a puppy and died here 2 months ago aged 15. So many memories all wrapped up in bricks and mortar and now we may be just weeks away from leaving this place. Don't get me wrong though I am desperate to get to Australia and for me the sooner the better but I know that there are going to be some sad moments to come and leaving this house is going to be one of them.
So our prospective buyers will be around to measure up this week and all I can hope is that the sale goes smoothly & that they will be as happy here as we have been.
There is just so much going on at the moment and sometimes it threatens to overwhelm us but we are on the up and thats what I need to focus on.
Tonight we are off to a friends 40th party and I see all these social getherings now as a chance to preserve a few more memories for the future as we may never see some of the people we'll meet tonight again. How wierd a thought is that?
Anyway enough for now so bye and we'll speak again soon x
