Absolutely no new exciting news yet to share on the house-buying front as we inch our way towards buying our new house. Thinking completion was imminent our solicitor arranged for us to transfer the full amount over six weeks ago, but nothing has been actually signed and sealed, so we daren’t yet start jumping for joy. You do hear of ghastly stories of sales going wrong at the last moment.
It is particularly frustrating when there are so many decisions – and some quite exciting – to be made that we simply cannot do anything about until we know for sure that things are going ahead.

There is plenty of decluttering yet to be tackled but also some rather more positive activities as we prepare for the next stage in our lives. Sorting, planning, shopping lists, discussions with removal firms, architects and our current landlords…
And, as fast as another bulging bin bag of clutter is despatched to the recycling centre in Ashbourne (and six to Air Ambulance yesterday!) my brain seems to get correspondingly more cluttered.
