Today was a positive one, albeit grey and drizzly.
First, I found an email in my inbox this morning from my 87 year old uncle who lives in Sydney, Australia. We have corresponded on a reasonably regular basis since he and my aunt emigrated in the 1960s. He always sends me little jokes and funny stories so that cheered me up straight away.
At lunchtime P drove me to the vaccination hub where I was booked in for my first jab. The whole process was slick and efficient with a whole team of lovely nurses directing proceedings. Due to my history of various allergies I was asked to wait for half an hour afterwards to make sure there was no adverse reaction, but all was fine.
When we arrived home there was a call from the estate agent to say that she had today received a good offer for our house before the buyer has even been to view it. They apparently liked the agents' photos and video and have driven by several times to take a look. We are cautiously pleased but after the last experience are not counting any chickens just yet.
Just wanted to leave you with this....it always makes me smile.

Thanks Debby. Trying not to get too excited just yet.Delete
Yeh, a happy day. Good you've had your jab. Fingers crossed for the houseReplyDelete
Thanks Linda. Happy Greek National Day!Delete
Those Monty Python guys are so outrageously funny! Congrats on getting the jab. House offer!!...Ooo, here's hoping...ReplyDelete
Yes they were a little outrageous, but harmlessly funny. No offence intended.Delete
We are hoping that the house offer is genuine this time. Xx

If it hadn't been for Monty Python showing me the error of my ways I might well have been.Delete
The advice in the clip is essential. If someone is keen enough to buy without having seen the interior, then I suspect they are the right people for the house. That is how I bought my first farmhouse here in France. The agent pulled up outside the huge stone gateposts, and I said "I'll have it".ReplyDelete
Crucifixion and the selling of a house. It's easy to see the connection.ReplyDelete
I knew you would YP.Delete
We all have our crosses to bear, I guess...Delete
I bought my first house in UK like that. The agent was appalled and said I couldn't make an offer until i had actually viewed it. We hope it goes throuh, and quickly, for you this time.ReplyDelete
Thanks Tigger. XDelete
I was ready to make an offer on our first home the moment I saw it. I didn't care what it was like inside! I wasn't allowed to by sensible hubby but we bought it and were very happy there. Fingers crossed this is The One! xReplyDelete
I think it is the location and views that appeal so much to our prospective buyers. The house itself is old and in need of a little updating but the agents made such a good job of the photos and video that I am sure the viewers will be disappointed when they see inside!Delete
