Oh how I wish the solicitors still worked with paper! I had two emails on Tuesday one all about the buying of the bungalow and the other questions that had been raised about selling this house.
Attachments that won't open, pdfs that won't download, pages that disappear = all part of the fun of trying to do things online by someone whose computer knowledge is frankly............ limited. And just to add to the fun my laptop charger connection has decided to only work if its jiggled about and then laid down very carefully in a certain position.
Hopefully I managed to answer all the questions but couldn't print off a map that was needed so I could mark the footpath. I'm sure there was a map with the footpath marked among all the bundle of paperwork that the solicitor already has.
The only query that came up on the bungalow was why there was no certificate for the last boiler service which was supposedly done last year.
The 15 boxes that I got off amazon are all packed and luckily the removal company man brought me some more + parcel tape and wrapping paper so I can get going on everything else.
The weather yesterday was just so nasty, rain which turned to wet snow and then back to rain all day. Then just to add to the depression Son rang to say he'd been working with someone up until Monday who had just tested positive for Covid. Which has put paid to even meeting with my "bubble" for 2 weeks. Hope he doesn't get it and spread it to my two youngest grandchildren and DiL.
Today (after ringing to check it was legal) I'm heading to the Scrap Metal Merchants with a car boot load of tins of weird rusty metal bits and bobs from out of the workshop. Brother in Law said it probably wasn't worth the cost of diesel for getting them there but the alternative is to put them in the metal skip at the Recycling Center (aka The Tip) and that means climbing up and down a metal staircase 2 dozen times to be able to chuck them in. And the skip then goes off to the same place as I'm taking the scrap anyway! So I might as well get the cash (although they don't do cash anymore as it has to be transferred into a bank account nowadays) for myself and cut out the council.
Thank you to everyone for comments about the bibles yesterday and it was lovely to hear of the other people who'd done Scripture Exams with their Baptist Chapels back in the 1960's. The Bibles are all in now packed in a box so the decision about which to keep has been put off for another day.
