Solicitor emailed me today to find-out when I want to complete.. asap is the answer. Said that Wednesday would be fine…not as if we have to go far.

Then the hard work starts on sorting out a flat which housed an old couple. We have to stay here in our current flat for a few weeks due to our contract but that gives us time to do the work before we move in. It’s not a great deal (on paper) strip and paint walls, ceilings, new bathroom suite and redecorate, new flooring, and replace one dividing wall (take out a grotty reinforced glass partition – like you get in a school)

Kitchen needs doing a little but it will be fine for the moment as it is really just cosmetic – plus we ain’t millionaires Rodney.
