The first agent turned up today to give me a valuation and I am pleased as punch to say that I was spot on with my guess. In fact both of them, I was dead on with both the value and what to expect for a quick sale. I will have to wait until Friday for the other 2. Patience is not my strong point, so to buck myself up I have been to see my solicitor and instructed him. I can not use Fran or her firm as they deal with Company Law only, and of course until she sits the New York Bar she could not handle it.
Apart from some tidying, more a case of moving piles of stuff from A to C via B, and of course some bright red hooky it has been a nothing sort of day. The sun has shone and the wind has blown and my washing was line dried. It was only after the agent chappie had left that I realised I had a twirly whirly full of frilly things, oh well I expect he's seen worse.
Ben managed to roll in something extremely dead and rotten so he had a bath, because of his skin condition he has special shampoo that has to be left in for 10 minutes. I take my kitchen timer with me and put the bathroom heater on, it was like a sauna in there. Then when well rinsed off I wrap him in towels before blow drying him with my hairdryer. He loves it, even the drying part.
I managed to finish reading Sew magazine this morning, I did take it to bed last night but could not keep my eyes open.
I noticed that Janome have won 3 British Sewing Awards last year, the most desirable machine was their Memory Craft 9900, I have been drooling over it but will wait until I move. It does mean that one of my machines will have to go.
There is a Janome 8900QCP as a competition prize this month so I may chance my arm at that, I don't bother usually but this time I might.
Reasons to be grateful.
1. Another glorious sunny day.
2. Washing done, dried and ironed in the same day.
3. I found my "trolley" token this morning, I lost it ages ago.
4. Dinner is out of the freezer and into the ding oven tonight.
5. I picked up 35p when I walked Ben this morning.
Every little helps.
I did not take any photo,s today, I am sure that no one wants to see the stacks of boxes accumulating in every room. I know that I don't.
That's all folks, the ding just dinged, my dinner should be ready.
