Treasures from the shed.

Yesterday hubs and I, well mainly hubs, gave the shed/garage a good tidy out in readiness for whenever we move. We took a trailer full of junk to the council tip and it was great to get rid of it all.

However, I did find a few useful items which I have put to one side. Look see!

This is called a Swift Chopper and I have already tried it out chopping carrots to hide from the boys in a lasagne I made this morning. 

Please undestand my boys love their veggies but always good to get more inside them!

Next is a lovely little bowl which, as you can see, is quite teeny tiny. However it matches the larger versions that I already own.

These two items will be very useful. The little measuring gadget will let us know we are not over packing for our holiday, a week yesterday to Menorca. eeek!, and the tape dispenser will help with the paking when we finally move. You cannot FAIL to be impressed by my sense of optimism!
Finally I re-disovered a favourite plant pot holder which I had forgotten about.

All in all a good rummage along with the much needed clear out!Ok, I need to get on and finsih my ironing so all I have to do after lunch is the lasttidying for the viewing.

Hope to catch up with you later.x

Fingers Crossed!

Just a very quick post after lunch in between the regular chores of the day.

We had a very positive viewing last Saturday and then we heard from the agent yesterday that they would like to come and look again on Thursday evening! Eeek!

Once again we are in clean, tidy, cushion-plump mode ready for the visit. My toilets have never been so clean, really.

It is always so very tempting to get over excited at this stage. You always assume people are extrememely interested if they come back a second time. However, I have come to the conclusion that, as much as people like a property, it is quite often extenuating circumstances which mean they do not proceed. This could be because grandparents are not close enough to help with child care, there are concerns about catchment areas or close proximity to school choices and, of course, financial setbacks.

So with these things in mind we remain positive, but are always aware that nothing is done and dusted until we sign on that dotted line.

Wish us luck!xx
