Thank you all very much for your house-selling good wishes! They have been very effective. After 16 viewings in 6 weeks, yesterday we agreed a sale with a lovely couple who are starting a family. I felt just a bit different looking out my window this morning, knowing that we will be gone from this place at the end of July.
I’ve often thought, these past few months, of the phrase “What’s meant for you won’t pass you by”. A friend from church taught me the Doric version: “Fit’s afore ye winna ging ahin ye” – what’s in front of you won’t go behind you. I’ve been praying for the family who would come here (nice to know who they are now) and also for the family whose home we will buy in Glasgow, for our new neighbourhood, school and friends-to-be. I know there will be moments of great stress as in all moves, but we’re all looking forwards to a fresh start. The sale will take some weeks to complete, so we won’t be househunting for a little while.
If, like me and Jill (see her comment on the previous post), you believe Spring begins on the 21st, then Happy First Day of Spring!
I’m very glad I managed to get more coal and wood, because it’s been so cold that the fire has been the only way to warm the Dafter up recently. And I’m so glad I no longer have to be on alert for phone calls, and have everything like a show home for potential visitors. I’ve had to neglect the Dafter, and Tilly, quite a bit over the past two months, and I’m going to enjoy being able to relax a bit more with both of them.
Thank you all again!
