So we picked up our keys late on Friday afternoon, walked the dogs back down the riverside and then leaving them at home headed off in the car. Although the new homes are only a ten to fifteen minute walk from here, Alan's leg is still very painful so hopping in the car seemed like a very good idea.
In no time at all we were letting ourselves in and having a good look around.
Don't properties just look so much sadder when they are empty of everything they once held!! Seeing the bare bones of Alan's place made us realise how well the furniture and clever staging had hidden the damage and the wear and tear the house had suffered purely from being a well used family home that the previous owners had simply fallen out of love with. It all felt quite sad, and made us realise that quite a lot of work was needed. The first thing to order will be a large skip.
My little place was quite a bit cleaner and fresher and although needing some work will be a much easier proposition ... once I have decided on the style of kitchen I want that is.
So if you would like to now it's time to grab yourselves a cup of coffee and settle back for the full tour of my new tiny home.
I still love it.
