Depending on how you look at it, it's probably good news.
For me, it just means two weeks of sweating buckets.
We got an offer on our house on Sunday night, and have been in negotiations since then with that buyer.
We signed a contract last night at 10 pm.
Luckily we have an escape clause as we are expecting another offer today from one of the viewers from Monday!
And not to rest on me laurels, there is ANOTHER private viewing today at 11 am.
Bloody hell! Talk about a turn around from the past 8 months of NOTHING happening.
I'm still not getting too excited as we all know nothing is final and SOLD until a contract goes UNCONDITIONAL.
The offer we signed last night goes unconditional on the 30th of March. So... let's wait and see what happens.
Now, I said I found some fabric to make cushion covers for our lounge, to match the new painting...
Next, a few photos of the Birthday girl blowing out her candles:
ABOVE: First of all, the little boys had to blow them out, though Archer just tried to grab them.
ABOVE: Bex finally got her turn. She made the cake, a very moist chocolate cake topped with Banoffee balls dipped in chocolate. OMG it was delicious and I ate too much then felt sick. Dumb.
Right, this morning I shall be getting the house ready for the next private viewing. Then I might have a go at finding some cushion inners so I can get started on making the covers.
Then I have a little job to do for Russell and Ange... a window seat squab. Yaaa... I actually feel like sewing again!
4.08 pm: Well it's been a busy, annoying, tiring day.
The private viewer was a bloody NO SHOW, so I kinda did all the housework for nothing.
But later on this afternoon I had the buyer come around with his Valuer, so they did an inspection of the house so he can get his finance.
And tomorrow the buyer's Builder is coming through to do a Building Report. *sigh*
I'm not too worried about that though. We have sorted out EVERYTHING that could have been an issue... and have a sound cladding/weather tightness report too.
The builder coming to do the building report is the man who BUILT this house. I think that's funny.
I had a big nap this afternoon, it was wonderful.
