good fences make good neighbours

The guys have come to put in our fence and decking this morning. We are sitting in the kitchen drinking tea and waiting for the panels to arrive.

Keith has a bad back, so we have negotiated with New Polish Lodger to help with the lifting; he is going to lift things and we are going let him have a week's free rent.

B has already had a long discussion with Cat Hating Neighbour re her roses and not knocking them down. She was really agitated yesterday when I told her they were going to come today; I didn't let her know before in case they could make it. She's in quite a state and I am leaving her to B to deal with.

[sigh]

The Potential Country House was valued yesterday. I am not going to tell you how much it's for, but it's about what we expected and within our budget. We've got a meeting with our finanical advisor - person at midday today; and the solicitor has got all the documents and searches from the vendor's solictor to check through.

It looks like things are in place. We just need to work out our budgets for essential works and set a top price after which we walk away at the auction. We thought we might try putting an offer in this week, once the finances are sorted out.

It's a lovely day. I am going to go and print out my spreadsheets :).

  3. I'm sure if you tell the guys to "mind her roses" all will be well. When we had some fencing replaced a couple of years ago the guys that did it were very gentle with neighbour's garden.
    I really quite excited on your behalf re the PCH. I'm keeping everything crossed for you and B on this one but it does make walking difficult!
    Glad it's a lovely day there - I think the thunderstorms that have been floating around the country have remembered Norfolk. The clouds are piling up like used needles in a stairwell! Better rush to get to T**c*'s and back before they break!
