The man at BT finally found the button to press,
to get us back online!!HeeHee!!
THANK YOU for all your lovely messages I found,
when I finally was able to log on yesterday!
You are all so kind.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.
The removal men came at 8am on the Monday and
7.30am on Tuesday 15th, the completion day!!
I was soooo tired!! Two mornings, getting up at 05.30!!
They left just after 8am.
We finally left at 9.45am with a fully loaded car!!
We took a very steady drive up, which took 3 hours 10 minutes.
We didn't stop and arrived just before 1pm. We then had to wait for the
money to work it's way up the chain.
We finally got the keys at 3.45pm!!
It was cold, drizzly rain while we were waiting but stopped whilst
they brought our stuff in the house.
The lady had left her washing machine in situ!!! So with a bit of help
from the removal men, they disconnected it and took it out.
I called her agent and asked him to get her to arrange her removal men,
to come and pick it up!!
They did the next day.
Our removal men were brilliant and went far beyond what they were there for!!
I don't think the house or garden had been touched since our offer was accepted!!
The grass is so long, it will have to be strimmed before trying to
cut it with a mower!!
I vacuumed the lounge and hall and my Dyson was filled with stuff!! Yuk!
I had to empty it so I could clean the rest of the rooms!
I washed everything down and vacuumed the whole house before we left.
A few days before that, I even weeded the garden!!
There is a lot more to do here than we first thought.
One of the toilets flush doesn't work properly.
Also the shower in the en-suite has got a problem and will need replacing.
Both of the radiators in the bathrooms are rusty and need replacing!
We will probably replace them with heated towel rails.
The list is too long and I don't want to bore you!LOL!!
We went out and bought new lighting today and ordered more online.
I have never seen a house where the lounge, dining room,
hall and 2 of the bedrooms, all had the same
awful, heavily textured paper on the walls!! Yuk!!
Homebase had a wallpaper steamer half price today, so we bought one!!
But we are in, Christmas tree is up and we had a lovely Christmas Day
with a friend that joined us, as he lives close by.
He was amazed how much we had done!!
On the plus side..... the rooms are much bigger than we remembered!!
The lounge is huge and the bedrooms too!!
Now onto my latest card, for the last Winter Wonderland challenge for 2015.
You have until the 7th January to get your cards in,
to be in with a chance of winning one of the prizes.
The theme is Bingo and I am hosting this challenge,
so all the details are to be found here.
I used my favourite Lili Of The Valley snowman stamp!
Coloured with Distress Inks and added plenty of Stickles Star Dust.
It came with the text stamp too.
The frame was the waste from another card
and edged with Sakura Star Dust Coloured Pens.
I had a quick peek at the WW blog and the DT cards are stunning as always!
Do find the time to check them out for some inspiration.
I would like to wish all my followers and visitors
A VERY HAPPY 2016
I hope you stop by next year and leave me your lovely messages!!
I do so love to read them.
