I had a real treat today.
We caught the bus into Douglas this morning as we had a few errands to run. Well, when the bus eventually arrived 20 minutes late, that is. There was a bus inspector on board who greeted us as we boarded and apologised for the delay. Amazing.
The delay meant that we had to shuffle our schedule a little when we arrived but as we are only old fogeys with nothing important to do that was not a problem.
First, we met with our Advocate in order to sign our part of the house sale contract, ready for exchange next week. If all goes well we may be able to complete on the sale at the end of next week.
Next was the letting agents to deliver proof of identity documents and complete a bank reference request, to prove we had some funds to pay the rent (even though we are paying the full 12 months rent in advance!). We have to meet the landlord tomorrow so that he can make sure he approves of us as tenants.
By then it was time for P to go for his second vaccination appointment so I waited in the nearby shop as it was a little cool and windy outside. He was only 5 minutes, which was pretty impressive.
Next was my treat. A smokey bacon bap and a flat white in the coffee shop. Heavenly. I only eat bacon once or twice a year so this was a real treat for me.
A brief detour via Boots for some "Lady stuff" then another shop for some more packing tape (we are going through that by the bucket load at the moment) then it was time to catch the bus home.
Boy. That was an exciting post wasn't it?
