that we're moving house next Friday!
I haven't said anything before this, just in case it didn't happen, especially after the disappointment we had last year.
Having given up the whole idea of moving just yet, we were beginning to make plans for some home improvement work - as you probably remember, we had decorated my new sewing room in early January. Then, quite out of the blue, we had a letter from the people who had made the offer on the house last year, and then dropped out. They couldn't find anywhere they liked better and were still really keen, and in a better position to move forward now - were we still interested? Well, yes, as long as the house we wanted was still available. And it was - so that was that, action stations.
And the upshot is - after all the usual frustrations attendant upon this business - contracts were exchanged this afternoon.
So that just gives us one week to get everything organised! For goodness sake, how are we going to manage!
I'm really quite excited about the move now, and look forward to sharing photographs with you once we actually arrive. For anyone who may be interested, I've started a new blog, On Moving to Somerset, to write about everything to do with the move and the new house and the new area.
So, my one year anniversary, 200 blog, give-away will be waiting a little while now, until we're settled into our new home - and I don't think I'm going to be able to do much sewing for the next few days either!
