fingers, toes and all flexible body parts


Please cross them for me!

We signed off the house details on Friday lunchtime, it went in the window at the Estate Agents this morning at 9am.

At 12.30pm I received a call from Estate Agents requesting a viewing.

Viewing has just taken place.

I'm trying so hard not to get my hopes up.

They were a young couple, first-time buyers so no chain to do battle with. No children yet, but planning a family in the future and looking for a home that will be their family home. They love the area. They've had one house fall through and so now 'know what they want' and are only viewing 'the good ones'. This house was on the good list.

They were here for almost half an hour - and although it's a big house it isn't a mansion either. Gave them the guided tour and then they asked if they could have a wander by themselves. I think that's a good sign. I overheard them planning where study furniture would go, and then comparing the size of the kitchen to the house they lost (my kitchen is bigger!!) All the signs, so far, seem favourable but I must not get my hopes up, it's only early days and they are the first viewers - it would be almost too good to be true if they made an offer.

But I did call the agents about the property I'm still in love with - and it's still available.

As I said, fingers, toes and all flexible body parts crossed.....

My word, that didn't take long did it?? Your home is obviously going to generate a lot of interest even if this couple don't decide to take it. But they do sound VERY interested don't they.

As far as crossing everything is concerned for you, consider it done.

Got fingers and toes most definitely crossed for you! I am sorry I have not been around, and now I am trying to play catch up!

There is nothing more that I can offer that mostly everyone else has, other than I admire the strength you have mustered. The sun will shine greatly on you some day.. and things will seem so much easier!

You are much loved!
