We’re pretty much all set up for our move to Devon now. We have rented a house for at least 12 months – possibly long enough for our new build, but we shall see – about 12 miles from our plot, in a village called Broadwoodwidger. We have the removals company teed up to move us in early January, and we’ve done things like transferring the phone and broadband accounts, buying heating oil (ouch – 70p/L!!!).
We’ve decided that, as we shall be in Woking for Christmas, we might as well enjoy it. This evening, we’ve decorated the Christmas tree that will be our only decoration for the holiday.
We both have a feeling of great relief, now that the uncertainty around the house sale is over. There are plenty of war stories to tell about the outrageous and unreasonable behaviour of our buyers’ buyer, but those are for another time. For now, we’re happy and excited to be moving.
