Dear Santa, thank you for the dolls and pencils and the fish. It's Easter now, so I hope I didn't wake you but... honest, it is an emergency. There's a crack in my wall. Aunt Sharon says it's just an ordinary crack, but I know its not cause at night there's voices so... please please can you send someone to fix it? Or a policeman, or...
Back in a moment.
Thank you Santa.

Looks Like This Is Actually Happening

Expect to sign the contract tomorrow or the day after.

Then all that's left is shifting 1.5 tons of books.  And junking 15 years worth of accumulated crap.

So, the main downstairs area of my current house - front hall, hall to the main bedroom and the first metre of the bedroom (it sticks out the front by 2.4m or so), ensuite, laundry, kitchen, lounge / dining area, and stairs - measures 8m x 6m.  (I got one of those laser measury things.)

The living room of the new house measures 7m x 6m - and is just part of a large open-plan area that flows off via two hallways to the rest of the house.

Being able to move around, having different rooms for different things, after spending this much time in a shoebox...  It's going to take some adjusting.

Third Time's The Charm?

Got the contract back for house #3.

My lawyer read through and had a couple of comments but saw no real issues.  I took a look through and I agree.

So it looks like I might be buying not a lovingly renovated 19th century cottage, but instead a modern house with twice the floor area and easily six times the storage space I have now.  And views for miles, which is what drew me to this one over other similar properties.
