We have just bid (auction style) on a wreck of a house.
Is that 'we' Nelly, or Mr N?
Yes but is exciting at the time !
Put that way - things are not so bad....
fingers crossed. Or uncrossed.
That is both of us, Nelly and Nelly's sidekick.
We have had the sudden urge to live like eigtheenth century peasants.
Nel, I admire your spirit of adventure!
Since my life oftens involves picking up, wiping or otherwise dealing with poo
I think I should be the owner of a septic tank, even if I cannot see exactly where it it.......
Have you actually bought somewhere or are you waiting for auction to finish?
THis house was unsold at auction and has an accepted bid on it - but the estate agent is passing our bid on. If no money has exchanged hands and the offer is not ridiculous then maybe, we have bought it.
We are a bit shell shocked to tell the truth. Two hours with the building society advisor looking at our finances was a bit stretching anyway without actly rashly over semi derelict housing.
