I started writing this earlier and it was titled “I still haven’t exchanged”:
But hopefully it will be today. The issue is, as usual, on the seller’s solicitors side. We’re waiting for a statement so I know what I need to pay (management fees, ground rent) and stuff like that.
My mortgage completed today though which is good. I need to check how much the first payment will be and when it will come out.
I got upset this morning. Over porridge again. Don’t ask me why. I came down and was going to make my own porridge. I just wanted to do it myself and Ben insisted on making it himself. I should probably just have sat down and let him get on with it. I’ll have plenty of occasions to make my own breakfast but it really got to me.
I got the call while I was in the loo. I had to hurry out of the toilets and run outside so I had reception and they told me that Id exchanged! Yippee!!!
I feel relieved that it’s finally happened.
I’m in Tescos car park having just bought myself some tobacco, some lunch and some cakes for the office (and for me – well it’s a celebration!).
