What an exciting day this has been.

We received four offers for the house, two very low, and the other two very reasonable.

We accepted the offer made by the young couple who are trying to get onto the property ladder. Then, about an hour later, we were notified that the young lady who had made the lowest offer had come back with an increase of £9k, putting her £2k over the young couple's offer! smiley - headhurts

I don't believe in gazzumping, so I said I would have to talk with Hubby. Thankfully he agreed with me, she should have made a reasonable offer in the first place, and we would stick with the young couple's offer.

Well, if the contracts are fully agreeable we should be moving at the end of August/beginning of September!

Then I will have more bloody painting to do! smiley - artist

Watch this space, folks!

Plans are afoot....

After all the painting I've done recently smiley - artist Hubby has put the house up for sale. He wants to take over his dad's bungalow and the other siblings are all in agreement about it smiley - smiley

During the first 7 days we have had three couples actually come to view the house and we are waiting to hear some feedback about them. We are not expecting a miracle buyer, but are pleased with the viewings so far. Hubby says a friend of his has only had two viewings in the six months his house has been up for sale smiley - erm

We have another two viewing tomorrow (Weds) and again on Thing! smiley - magic

Yesterday was my RL buffday.... and I spent it cleaning the oven! smiley - rofl

I don't bloody believe it!

Most of you will now know that my father-in-law died recently, in fact his funeral will take place next week, so there have been *things* that have needed to be done sooner rather than later.

One of these is that the executors (Hubby and his brother) are required to notify all creditors as the bank account has now been closed due to probate.

British Gas were marvelous and couldn't be more helpful. No difficulties with the electricity and water companies. The Council even completed the necessary forms for my brother-in-law, as he will be staying in the property for the next few months, or until the property is sold.

Now, we come to Virgin Media... Yes.. smiley - erm

Brother-in-law contacted them and informed them of what had happened and that the account needed to be closed. 'David' took all the particulars and input them to their pc... then said:

'How can we encourage you to stay with us?'

'Errrr... Go back to the beginning of the conversation, David.'

'Ah, yes. But, if he hadn't died, would he have remained a customer with us?'

smiley - doh

To add insult to injury, two days later a bill arrived for £55 because the terms require 1 month's notice of termination!

smiley - steam

Don't forget folks, if you are feeling under the weather please notify Virgin before it is too late!!!

*shakes her snowglobe* smiley - witch
