One day…

A lovely time spent with niece N today, though I can’t deny a little lie-down this afternoon. I may not sleep much at night, but I’m making up for it later. Hot weather is good for the siesta.

I had a card and letter from Tim’s buyers. I’d left a letter for them, with necessary details such as how the burglar alarm works, but also details of local businesses, the dustbins, that Clare the lovely neighbour still has a key, which of course she will return – anything useful. I also left the original deeds of the house and manuals for any appliances that were left. S and J sound delightful and are really pleased with the house, having lost two previous places they’d offered for. They love the original 1920s features and are glad to have extra information. A charmingly hand-written card (my epistle was typed, but it was quite long) was such an unusual touch and I’m happy now to know that the house has gone to lovely people.

One day, I’ll manage to unpack the boxes of Tim’s stuff that I’ve brought back here.

    How nice. Good that there are still a few people around who have manners and show appreciation.

    We’re compiling a similar ‘house manual’, adding to it as we think of things. If the buyers behave and stick to our time-frame, they will get it left, and if they don’t, they won’t. If they don’t get it, they are going to struggle as there are lots of quirks that they will never work out, but at least we will have the final upper hand. If they are really awkward I shall remove all the helpful labels I have already added to many plugs and levers ๐Ÿ™‚

    We are in the strange position of having seen our buyers (CCTV), researched them (estate agent let too much info slip accidentally, as we’re cleverer than him, and he’s pretty sharp), but not having met them.

    And as for those boxes… one day the time will feel right. Until then, let them sit.

    Thank you all. I had a WhatsApp from the neighbour today, she says they’re lovely too. I know their names from the conveyance documents, of course, but I haven’t looked them up.
