I am starting to fray a little around the edges.
Our solicitor thinks it is worth putting an offer in before Monday and is currently perusing* the masses of documentation that have been forwarded to her from the vendor's solictors.
I have phoned the vendor and asked them what they use the barnyard behind the property for; I spoke to Mrs Vendor, who rather vaguely stipulated 'er, farming, mostly'. I am now wondering if there is a possibility that they could be thinking of selling them for conversion purposes at a later date; which would mean that we had neighbours right on our doorstep.
I suppose at the very least all this is providing me with very effective displacement activity; I am not worrying about our appointment with the adoption agency at all.
Excuse me while I go and like down in a darkened room and drink homemade carrot whisky straight from the demijohn.
PS. The piano is VERY flat. I may try that audio-blogging thing in order to demonstrate, if I can remember how it works.
