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.
