Not everyone liked her ...

    1. No, the lady that wanted to come to see it has just accepted a reduced price offer on her house and now she can't afford ours. She asked us to drop our price by £80,000 hahaha ... no chance!! We are already marketing it at the lowest of the valuations that we received.

    2. I'm sure the right person will come along. Though that said, we are still waiting to meet them! The ones who have been here, with one exception, had NO IDEA about gardens, for instance, having sold their London FLAT to purchase "somewhere in the country". I couldn't help thinking they would have a terrible shock when they DID move somewhere rural!

      £80K is a BIG "discount" to suggest!

    3. We both just laughed and our agent hadn't even thought we would consider it ... he's after his big commission ;-)

    4. Ah, just seen this, so ignore my comment on today’s post.
      I believe agents are legally obliged to pass on offers, however insultingly ludicrous.

      There are going to be so many people “doing the sensible post-pandemic thing” and getting the heck out of London, buying a nice place “somewhere rural” and after they have been through their first long, dark, cold, wet winter when they cannot walk to a coffee shop, or cannot drive to yoga because the roads are sheet ice, that there will be lots of lovely “rural” properties for back up for sale as the disenchanted cannot wait to return to ‘civilisation’.

    5. No problem Jayne :-)

      Yes, there will be quite a bit of spur of the minute buying and then re-thinking further down the line. As long as we get our asking price or near-ish to it ... and I can make my getaway ... that suits me just fine ;-)

    1. The view is gorgeous, but the life is not what either of us want now. We need to move on.

  3. I want to sing, The green green grass of home. It's beautiful but then I know home has to be where the heart is. Its early days with the house sale, hopefully one of the Londoners will come up trumps.

  4. I like that Quote, being authentically yourself is not something most people are necessarily comfortable enough doing since it wouldn't conform or meet with the expectations or approval of other people.

    1. I think being authentically yourself and comfortable in your own skin comes much easier with age. If only I'd know at twenty what I know now, how different things could have been :-)

  5. But one likes themselves and that is what counts.

    God bless.

  6. That's how I feel too. I can't pretend to be something I'm not. Take it or leave it.

    1. You can get into deep water pretending to be something you're not. Take it or leave it is a good way to be :-)
