YIPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 
WE'VE DONE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
 
We managed to exchange contracts today!!
 
 
It started at just after 9am,
but by lunchtime, we hadn't got
any further than the second person
from the bottom!!
 
The solicitor was not answering her
emails from Emma, our solicitor!!
 
By 2pm, Emma was pulling her hair out,
as there are 6 levels in the chain.

We were going through so many
different emotions.
Anger, worry and frustration!
 
By around 2.45pm I had a call from Emma,
telling me we had finally exchanged!!
 
What a relief!!
We are now moving on Tuesday next week.
 
Because it's about 4 hours travelling time, the removal
company are coming at 8am Monday morning.
They will load the truck with all of our things,
other than our bed, fridge and TV!
 
They will then come back Tuesday morning at 8am,
load our bed etc onto the truck and off we go.
 
They will unload as much as they can, depending
on the light and what time they get there.
 
They will sleep in the truck overnight, all 3 of them!
They will travel back to East Grinstead
on Wednesday morning.
 
One of our friends will meet us at the house.
He is going to help us unpack etc.
 
I am absolutely shattered!
The stress over the last 6 months and the lack
of sleep for the last week has caught up with me.
I am going to have the best sleep ever tonight!!
 
Hubby is already snoring his head off!!
I think I will join him now.
 
I would like to give a massive
THANK YOU
to all my lovely followers, who left me
the most wonderful and caring messages.
 
I feel so lucky to have you as friends.
 
Every time I read them, they picked me up and
even sometimes brought a tear to my eyes.
 
You are all so very kind.
 
Sending you all a massive HUG!
