And we’re in!
After what seems like absolutely ages…but is actually just over 3 months from when we put in the offer, we are in our new house! We have keys, we have light bulbs, we have wood chip!
Friday just seemed to go on forever. We didn’t expect to get the keys until the afternoon, so the morning was spent doing chores round the flat, and doing the rounds of the banks closing accounts, changing addresses etc. We then headed over to Wokingham to pick up our herb planter, and then over to High Wycombe. Annoyingly at just before 3pm we were given a call from the head office of the estate agents to say the keys were at the High Wycombe office and ready to pick up, so we dawdled over to the other side of town, only to get a call from the High Wycombe office to say that they wouldn’t be available for another hour!! They later gave us a call to say could we pick the keys up from the house, rather than waiting for the vendors to bring the keys into town. We got to the house at about 5pm, and they still had a van of stuff that needed to be moved. We chatted to her for a while, and she showed us where all the fuse boxes, and meters were, how the heating and hot water worked etc, which was good I guess!
