And Now!!!!!!

It's 6 months today, since we accepted our first full asking price
on our bungalow!!
And we are still here!!
 
Photos of now as promised!!
 
All the work tops have been taken off the walls, along
with the storage on the walls above the desk.
Very depressing! 
The wall units are now on the floor, with a section of worktop
balanced on the top of them. Just so we can use the computer.
 
 
Desk top leaning against the wall, along with the under desk shelving.
Dollshouse in bubble wrap.
Boxes full of stash!
 
 
Boxes of paper gone! Packed in crates! 

 
How I hate mess and this is really getting to me!
The joy of being a 'Virgo'!!
The whole house is just piles of boxes and very claustrophobic.

 
We are hoping to exchange contracts today but we don't
think it's going to happen.
They did try last Friday but the bottom of the chain
wasn't ready.
 
All the rest of us are sitting surrounded by boxes, waiting for
the solicitors at the bottom to get on with the job!!!! (SCREAM!!)
 
I think the problem is, that you have no control over what is happening.
Other people are dealing with it and you cannot speak to them and with
some of them, you are just a piece of paper in a file!!!
 
We are very lucky with our solicitor, as she just gets on with things
and is always there to speak to.
She is absolutely brilliant and keeps us informed as to what is going on.
She also has a great sence of humour to ease the stress.
All in all she is the best!!
Even the agent we are buying through says it too.
 
Shame the others are not as efficient!
 
Hope to have good news soon.
Hugs,
Carolxxxx

Hi Carol. You have my absolute sympathy as my parents have been in the same boat. They sold their house with no trouble in what seemed like a very simple train, but there were lots of bumps along the way and it got really stressful for them at times. Like you they were packing as much as they could hoping to finally exchange. The good news is that they finally moved just over a week ago and life can begin to return to normal once again,……..I am sure it will work out for you too, once you get that Exchange! Take care and I am keeping my fingers crossed for you.

Oh Carol I'm so sorry for you. I think the solicitors make it so complex sometimes. Hope it happens for you really soon.

You have my sympathy Carol, I think I would feel the same as you do surrounded by all those boxes and upheaval. I do hope you contracts exchange soon and the next leg of your journey can begin.
Take care and try not to get stressed too much.
