Didn't want to post about it too early, but it does look like it's actually happening now so hopefully I'm safe!

We have a buyer. She wouldn't go about the asking price (even though we had it as 'offers over') but she is in rented accommodation so NO CHAIN. And the seller of the house we want (the townhouse) won't go below his asking price, because it's a divorce thing and they need every penny they can to get two properties, even flats, out of that money, but he is pretty much packed and ready to go. And because his house is pretty cheap for the size, and in the lower stamp duty bracket, we're still making a decent amount of money on the deal that we can use to make the house into what we want.

So, can't complain.

Our buyer wants to be out of her rented place by the end of April. Which means we'll probably be moving a couple of weeks after Godspell. Not great timing, but I guess I should be grateful it's not before Godspell!

And speaking of Godspell, tickets are now available so can people who expressed an interest in coming to see it have a think about if they really do want to and what day? We can put people up overnight - it'll only be the sofa or floor, I'm afraid - but we'd love to have you. :-)

I don't have the email with the prices on here, 'cos I'm at work, but they're about £6.50 to £7.50 I think. And the dates are 14-19 April.

ETA: My flist has gone mad overnight! May take me a while to catch up!

It is a gorgeous day over here. It's so warm, I've got the kitchen door open, and have just been standing in the kitchen making chocolate chip mint cookies while Jack played in the back garden. How perfect is that?

We are also possibly getting somewhere with selling the house. Still waiting to hear back from the estate agents but we have one firm offer - rather low but from someone with no chain - and a possible two more coming up...

So. Life is good right now. :-)


ETA: Oh, and I wrote another 450 words of Master Plan yesterday. It's getting there. Slowly but surely, it's getting there. :-)

We have SEVEN viewings of our house arranged for this weekend! Two this evening (6.00 and 7.00), four on Saturday, and another one on Monday evening.

If we don't get an offer, or at least a second viewing, out of that, I'm going to cry.

(Gratuitous use of pretty new Xander icon, 'cos I haven't had a chance to use it yet.)

Well, I've finally had a decent night's sleep so I'm not exactly caught up but am feeling more able to tackle things today. So... list:

Cut for length )

In other news, the town house we made an offer on and then lost has come back on the market so we're trying to arrange another viewing of it, and in the meantime we went back for another look at the house we've currently got an offer on. It's bigger than I remembered but it's not as big as the town house and it's £20K more so I think we'll be going for the town house if we can just get to see it again...

And oh God it'd be nice to actually get a buyer for ours so we could put a proper offer in!

Oh. My. God. I actually am a girl!

In other news, we have an 'open house' viewing thing from 1.00 till 3.00 this afternoon, and another viewer coming at 5.00, so now I have to go and clean and stuff. :-(

I'm writing my Jack/Jack thing, and it's coming out as almost completely dialogue only at this point. I've got a few little notes ('grin', 'move' etc.) for where I want pauses, but otherwise it's almost entirely dialogue.

Maybe it's because Jack has such a very clear voice. Maybe it's because I've got two of him. *g*

Obviously I will be going back and adding in bits around the actual dialogue - and hopefully he'll shut up a bit later when I actually get to the sex! - but I'm just finding it really interesting.

Other news:

1. Master Plan Chapter 7 has been through two betas and is now with the third and hopefully final beta, and I'm feeling more confident about it now. You may hopefully expect to see it sometime next week.

2. We've found another house to buy and have put in an offer. Now if we can just get someone to buy ours (or at least someone to buy our buyer's flat)...

ETA (because I forgot) 3. Happy Thanksgiving to all the Americans, and anyone else who's celebrating it. Which reminds me: must order a turkey for Christmas... :-)

Halloween fic is done! It is literally only a drabble, but it's different: it's second person POV, it's female POV and it's Buffyverse.

I feel relieved to have got that out of the way.

In other news, we have been sitting here all morning waiting for people to turn up to view the house - they were due 'between 9 and 10' but haven't turned up yet, and we can't get hold of anyone at the estate agents either... Going to have to go out soon because we need things from the shops. Just a tad fed up...

We've just lost the house we were going to buy.

Damn.

I'm feeling really good today.

1. We have our house on the market. It's taken us about three years (mainly because of a certain addition to our family giving enough to think about without moving house as well!) but we're finally there! I am so chuffed.

2. To celebrate, hubby and I are going out for dinner tonight, for the first time since our holiday in mid-June. I am really looking forward to it!

So if you don't 'see' me around tonight - that's why! *grin*
