Thank You to a Lovely Blog Reader

 This arrived in the post  yesterday.


 Thanks to A. who asked if she could pass on my address to P.  a kind reader from Wales who wanted to send me her copy after I said the library waiting list had over 500 people on it..... I would have waited but it's a treat that I don't have to and I promise to pass it on to someone else. Thank you P  - I will write and thank you properly.

Which reminds me......Spoiler alert! My Advent photos 2020 are going to be Christmas books, some of which I'd like to also pass on to blog readers. More about that next month as I have to read them myself first!

On what would have been library day last week Andrew the library man rang just to remind me that they wouldn't be round. We had a discussion about it being a shame that there wasn't a way to get the books reserved by mobile library readers to a library building so we could pick them up. He said he had 400 books in crates stuck waiting until the mobile can start up again. That has been the only problem with being a mobile user as readers who use a library building are able to book a slot to collect their reservations. But I've plenty to read here so waiting isn't a problem.

And talking about Spoiler Alerts............ with no one being allowed into the studio the Strictly Spoiler website has lost it's 'mole'. As the whole world knows, the "Sunday" results programme is recorded after the Saturday live programme so up until this year it's been possible to look online on a Sunday morning and find out which two couples were in the dance off and who got voted off. But "mole-less" this week it was completely wrong! Whoops.

 And STOP PRESS - I accepted an offer on the house yesterday - which means it sold (subject to contract and all that jazz) within 4 days of going on the market! That's never happened before. The family buying have sold subject to contract to someone in rented accommodation but need to finalise here by end of March to catch the Stamp Duty Holiday and that means I'll need to rent for a few months (a holiday let maybe?) until the new build I want is available in May (Or April or June -  with a new build - who knows!) 


I'm taking a few days off  blogging to start sorting things out!

Sue

  2. I miss the strictly Spoiler Saturday result on Twitter, because I can't be bothered with the results show on Sunday. We all know it's done and dusted on Saturday, so why they string it out so long!
    Well done on getting your house under offer so quickly, hope the sale proceeds problem free and quickly. :O)

    (spelling mistake in first publish, couldn't let it go so had to redo)

  3. Oh, my word, that was so speedy. Someone is a very lucky buyer! How fantastic for you.

  4. All library services are closed in Norfolk at the moment, except on line stuff, so no way we can pick up books or anything either. Good on the house sale, it means the 31st March deadline is feasible for your completion date. Selling and being able to move at leisure instead of a scramble out of one house and into the next on the same day is the way to do it, excellent news, cash in the bank and no pressure on the purchase.

  7. Congratulations on the sale. We are in a similar position - about to rent whilst waiting for a new build to be built. Good luck!

  8. That is very good news Sue. I am happy for you.

  9. A book to read (enjoy it, it's fun), a house that's sold... All good news! But the prospect of having to pack and move concentrates the mind wonderfully. Let's hope the new build comes along quickly and you don't have too long in an "interim dwelling"

  12. 2nd Go.
    Congratulations on your sale I do hope things go smoothly for your move to temp, and thence to your new build.
    BTW I also read the Spoiler on Sunday am, but I reread later in the day and he had correctly amended the result. I record both the shows to FF-> all the chat and faff. I was able to replay Billy Ocean.

  13. I can recommend a holiday in Yorkshire. Who knows: you might move here!

  14. Great news about the house- so quick! Hope the legal stuff goes smoothly.

  15. Congratulations, wow what a lovely quick sale, and as it is virtually chain free ahead things should go really smoothly. If you put virtually everything into a removal company's storage department you could move into a holiday let with just a couple of boxes and your personal things and the whole move will be so easy.

    Are you buying off plan and getting the ability to choose your own finishes with the new house?

  19. Wow, congratulations on the sale of your house, that was quick!

    Re the book, I'm about two thirds of the way through reading it and its brilliant. I highly recommend it 👌

    Good luck with the sale, may it all progress smoothly. Do you have someone to help you pack up Sue? I found it daunting during the run up to our move so our daughter came to help but its tricky right now with all the restrictions.

  20. That’s great news Sue. Heather

  21. Good news. Best of luck with the sorting and finding a temporary accommodation.

  22. Oh wow, THAT was quick (6 years quicker than our sale!!) I hope that it all goes smoothly for you.

    Enjoy the book - I've not read any of his (yet!)

  23. Great news on the contract in 4 days. It must be a hot market there. Do you have a contract already on the new build unit?

    ReplyDelete
  24. That's amazing re the house sale-good wishes on the process. We last moved in December 1991, and we should probably downsize but the whole process is a bit scary! jean/winnipeg

  25. Congratulations on the sale of your house! Much to do ahead, I know, but it will be exciting.

  26. I didn't think you'd be hanging around long, the property market in the south is crazy at the moment. I'm pleased for you Sue, at least with a new build you should have less to worry about. Fingers crossed for you.

  27. Many congratulations on the house sale Sue and what a beautiful home it is too, just been looking at the pictures. I would love to downsize, an apartment by a bus stop is all I want!

  28. Great news on your house sale! I'm not surprised - it's beautiful! I hope it all goes smoothly and you don't have to wait too long until your new home is built! :o)

  29. Being incapacitated for the last month Sue I had no idea about your intended move - what a surprise.

    ReplyDelete
  30. How nice of a reader to send you the book! It's good to see the kindness in the world amid all the craziness.

    Congratulations on the sale! That was super fast but your home is lovely and I'm not surprised. It's also nice you have a little time and can avoid a mad rush in packing up. Enjoy your weekend!

  31. Congratulations on accepting an offer on your home. I hope the sale and transition to your new property goes smoothly and is as stress free as possible.

  32. By selling and renting you improve your chances of snapping that next house over someone else in a chain.
    Well done!

  33. sorry that should have read “snapping up”

  34. Just back to blogging after an hiatus. Didn't know you were moving, I really will have to catch up x

  35. How wonderful that your place has sold so quickly (and I hope it all goes through for you without any hassles).
    I had all my possessions in storage for nearly twelve months until I found a permanent home. It was inconvenient sometimes but mostly worked well.
    Good luck with all your sorting out of stuff :) xx

  39. Congratulations on such a quick sale - that is wonderful news!
    I am very envious of your book gift - I believe that I am now #87 on the list for that book - and it's already been a couple of months - but - that's fine, it's not as though I'll run out of reading material. Enjoy it and I'll be interested to read your review.

  42. Well, I'm going to say I'm not surprised, it's a lovely house and you had it presented impeccably. What lucky people to have bought it. I hope your move to a temper rental goes easily. I can understand you will be too busy to blog while you get on top of everything, but don't overdo it ... tomorrow will be here for you too. But YAY! you've sold!!!

  48. Hi all, I have seen comments from people who have already received a loan from Anderson Loan Finance. I really thought it was a scam and applied for a loan based on their recommendations because I really needed a loan. A few days ago, I confirmed on my personal bank account the amount of $12,000.00 USD that I had requested for a personal loan with a rental percentage of 2%. This is really good news that I am satisfied with and I advise anyone who needs a real loan and is sure to repay the loan to contact them by e-mail.

    They can lend you any type of loan!
