It wasn't.... the weather I mean.
We were expecting shitty weather yesterday... but it didn't really happen.
Today on the other hand IS supposed to be dreadful. Just in time for our next Open Home.
I am hoping like hell this will be one of our last open homes? Ya never know. There is a bloke selling his house by Auction this weekend who is keen on our house. IF he sells this weekend, we MIGHT be getting another offer on the house. Which MIGHT cancel out the existing offer.... and speed things up a bit.
As it stands, we are still having to wait for our current buyers to sell their home, and as far as I can tell it's not even on the market yet! Maybe they have a few things to attend to first, as we did too?
Anyway... it's a 'normal' Sunday here then. Clean and tidy and get ready for another Open. As the weather is supposed to be dreadful, we are not expecting many to come... if any.
But we still have to do all the preparation like usual.
I'm sending Stew and the kids grocery shopping this morning so I can just get on with it. They are not much use really, except for vacuming, emptying bins and picking up dog poop!
I do literally everything else.
So... until much later... I hope you have a better day than me!
10.36 am: And so far the dreadful weather is holding off... maybe we won't get it? lol
Knowing our luck it will start at 1.45 pm, just before our Open.
I've just hung some net on our walk-in-wardrobe window. It's the only window that had the new house being built to our side looming over it. I can't get dressed in there now due to the builders being able to see in!
Can't have that eh?
I just used the net that I took off the lounge windows, so it didn't cost me a cent either. SCORE.
5.24 pm: and we were so lucky with the weather! It didn't rain at all.
We had a total of 6 groups through, which was a good turn out.
One of our Agents had a new listing, and they had the first Open Home today, and no one turned up. So we were lucky today for sure.
Our buyer's house goes on the market this week, and their first open home is next weekend. Hopefully they sell fast.
Steve, Bex and the little boys are here for dinner. Steve found a butchery in Orakei that sells amazing Duck N Orange sausages, so he bought some for dinner tonight, and is cooking them too.
Bex has made a Chocolate cake for dessert, so we are being spoilt rotten tonight.
End of Day: well a delightful evening... Dante was like an energiser battery...on the go non stop! The sausages were delicious and so was the banana cake.
Everyone has gone home/to bed and it's just me watching 'A Place To Call Home'... an Australian series that I am really enjoying.
Almost time to go to bed myself.
