Busy, Busy

We have had a very busy weekend.

On Friday afternoon, at 3.15 pm precisely, we got the call we had been waiting for. Contracts had just been exchanged on the sale of our house and the purchase of our new home! Finally! At long last! It seems to have taken forever to get to this stage. We put the house up for sale on 8 March 2008 and finally received an acceptable offer on 6 May 2009. We are now set to complete the transaction on 10 September.

Now it is "all systems go". We are off on holiday this coming Saturday, for one week, so for now it's busy, busy, busy. I will do my best to keep up with the blogging world and give more details as we go along.

Gosh. Only a week between the end of your holiday and moving. You'll need another holiday afterwards, methinks!

Lindsay said...

Good luck with the move - we found the whole house selling,buying and moving exhausting. Have a good holiday first!

Congratulations on selling your house Anne and how wonderful that you are going away on holiday. I am sure you have loads to do before you leave. May this week go quickly and smoothly for you.

Pam said...

Congratulations!!! Now try and enjoy your holiday!
I sold my house in Ohio while I was on vacation. I remember thinking how surreal it was that my real estate agent rang me while I was looking at memorabilia in the Churchill bunker in London. He said "it's very echoey - where are you?"

Maggie May said...

Brilliant. So pleased about the house.

Have a great holiday.

Strawberry Jam Anne said...

Rosiero - Probably but I think we will make the most of next week also.

Leia - Thank you - no, we won't worry.

Lindsay - thank you, we'll be glad to get away on Saturday.

Jay - we will definitely not be fretting until we get back!

LWM - thank you - I will keep you posted.

Gilly - and where it is all going to go!

Cynthia - thank you.

Denise - we are thrilled - and so far, so good!

Pam - that made me laugh - did you tell him?
