What happened to Tommy and the BIG black dragon.

Hello everyone, I hope you're all okay and looking forward to the weekend.

Did anyone see the post I did on Tommy and the big black dragon? The thing is it seems to have disappeared so now I'm wondering if I dreamt it or something - very strange.

Vicki got a visit from the woman at the flower shop that she used to work at up until Christmas last year and she has asked her to go back and work there so now we are in a real dilemma because she all set to become a care worker and so now she doesn't know what to do for the best.

Someone asked me the other day to show pictures of the houses we visited last weekend so below are some pictures of the house that we took a fancy too. We won't be bothering with the first house we went to see but if the one you see below is still on the market when ours is sold then I think we would make an offer on it as it's in a nice village surrounded by lovely countryside.



Things with our own property are getting started, we have to get it energy checked to get a rating as to how energy efficient it is - another job for the boys but you have to do it before the agent will advertise it, the annoying thing is we have to pay for it.

Blogger was down for twenty four hours, they removed some recent posts and are now in the process of re-posting them.
Such a lovely village, with beautiful little cottages, I love the low ceilings.

Thanks for that Jo, I thought I was going mad or something.

it's a little different over here. the inspections take place after there is a contract on the house. one inspection for the house to make sure that it is sound or at least to bring to light any problems that the seller should fix or that the buyer will accept as long as they know about it. it's also an appraisal of sorts. the banks won't loan the money if the inspection doesn't appraise it at the selling price or more. and then another inspection for termites.

We put in an offer for a house in Cornwall last month too- the structural report etc was £600!! We were outbid by just 7K- gutting.
This cottage is lovely- l like the style and the character of the place. G and l are partial to this look too- just as long as there is a nice wee pub around the corner-not that we go to the pub up here but if we were in Cornwall we would.
