A bit of Mary life news - There's something about Mary...

Aug. 22nd, 2011 07:59 am A bit of Mary life news

Morning all,

I haven't wanted to say anything sooner just in case, but....

Tim and I are buying our first home! :-)

Hoping to exchange contracts at the end of this week and complete (and get the keys) the following week.

We are buying a 3 bed end terrace in leafy Chorlton-cum-Hardy in Manchester.

It is a lovely part of Manchester, and a lovely house. I couldn't be happier.

A massive downsize after renting the mansion that is Peters Croft so I have had to part with lots of possessions that I am sad to see go. But it will be great to own our own home, and to be back in Chorlton.

Just keeping my fingers crossed that the next 2 weeks go smoothly. And also spending every spare moment packing (as well as getting ready for my birthday bash this weekend - are you coming? Last chance to camp in my garden!)

So. Yeah. Moving. New house! Wish us luck :-)

Congratulations! :-) As others have said here, it's a good time of year to move house (less worry about it raining on your stuff as you move!)

On the parting with possessions, is it possible that your friends nearby could store some stuff for you until you're all settled in there?

Hope all goes well with your move! I know all about downsizing - when we moved to London from Doncaster we were constantly at the tip with stuff that had been left in various storage places "in case we ever need it again" - and a lot of stuff that was, frankly, broken anyway! I sent what I could to charity shops, but most of it was rubbish. Hope you enjoy your new home.

*snugs* I will, but I probably will be a bit later than 4pm as I'm performing with my choir in the afternoon. Hope you don't mind.

Fab and very exciting news!

Shout if you want to borrow the sacktruck and we'll bring it down. It makes moving heavy things so much easier!
