 |  Category: buying |  One Comment

At long last the house is ours, solicitor phoned at lunchtime to say it was all done and we picked up the keys on the way home.

We have been up there this evening for an hour testing walls and found in the bedroom the wallpaper comes off pretty easy so those two rooms are both 80% done already not a bad start.

Out tonight for a couple of pints then tomorrow the hard work starts, can’t wait :)

22 Aug 2009 Were getting close now :)

…. and at long last too.

We have now got the contract through which contains lots of big legal words and lots of little words just in the wrong order “the of which” WTF!! We have a few minor technicalitites to resolve and we COULD still be on for Friday. All I need to do now is work out how to cover my scare and learn the art of wallpaper stripping…
