Step by step but in limbo a little, too.

Good afternoon.

Feeling a little out of sorts at the moment if that is the right description for it.

The contracts for the house move yesterday so me, the boys on their bikes and Jake set off for the Post Office after breakfast. We went to send the documents back to the solicitor, guaranteed next day delivery, because of the Bank Holiday. We wait for the next stage and are twiddling our thumbs somewhat.

We have a huge amount of the house packed up ready to go so are wating for contracts to be exchanged then hubby will be all systems go down to Wales. I have nothing to keep me occupied really regarding to sale or purchase, no paperwork just now, no point in cleaning anywhere to a great degree as things will be going soon. I have today been baking to use up a few things out of the cupboard to pass the time, so we now have a tin of cherry and oat flapjack and a delish yoghurt and poppy seed, lemon flavoured loaf cake, one of my favourites!

In the last couple of days I have spoken to the boys' school, their teacher actually and got myself a little straighter regarding uniform etc so I'm now waiting for the school outfitter to call saying sweatshirts and polo shirts are ready and how much it will be for her to post them to me here so we are organised for the first day, whenever that will be.

I have informed the school here that they will not be returning for the Autumn term and have arranged for them  to visit their class friends on the day they should have returned. It will give me a chance to have a quick word of thanks to the teachers, too.

That is about it for now but we hope to hear something tomorrow regarding the next part of the process, failing that it will be on Tuesday due to the darn tootin' Bank Holiday, harumph!

Will be in touch.



  1. ooh, it's a horrible wait and that's for sure. But, that moment when you get the call to say contracts have been exchanged is so nice!

    Keeping my fingers & toes crossed for you until you get that call. Yes, flippin' bank holidays. They have a habit of getting in the way of things.

    that loaf looks so good.

    1. Thanks for your words of empathy Sadie.x

  2. It was only last year we were twiddling thumbs as well although I did have the shop still to over see things on and hubby was and still is working, it has to be the worse wait ever next to waiting to give birth neither of which you know when its going to happen you just know it is :-)

  3. You are all set here. You've got your stuff packed, have basically clinched the house, and just a few papers away from owning it. Things seem to be falling into place. Pretty soon, this will all be just a journey you would look back on. Anyways, thanks for sharing!
