The lease on our rental bungalow started today so we had to go into Douglas to collect the keys before driving up to Ramsey to unload a carful of boxes.
Exchange of contracts on our house sale was also due today and I kept checking my email inbox every 5 minutes to see if it had happened. Although we were 99% sure it would all go through OK there was still that tiny seed of doubt. What if they had a last minute change of heart? What if they suddenly revised their offer? What if we were left with an unsold house and a 12 month commitment to this rental?
Finally, at 4 p.m. the email arrived confirming exchange of contracts has taken place, with final completion next Tuesday. At least we have the weekend to finish packing and transporting all our worldly goods (and trying to squeeze them into a much smaller house).
Perhaps I shall be able to sleep better tonight.
