Our buyer’s solicitor is conducting searches, but apart from that the whole chain is ready and we’re all champing at the bit. Hopefully exchanging in a couple of weeks, and moving early Feb. Hoorah!
I’m going to enter the arcane zone of Manworld and start thinking about the tools we’re going to need so I can plug them into my spreadsheet. Some of them will run on petrol and I’m not really sure what I’m looking at, as His Nibs has been managing this part of the plan. There will be buzzy chop hard wood things, strimmy weed whacker things, a decent lawnmower, maybe a rotavator, and plenty of hand tools. Goodness knows what we’ll find in the barn and garage when we move in – there may be useful things there already. If it all takes hold sufficiently, I may end up finding tractors curiously arousing, somewhere between Screwfix and Lakeland.
