Thanks for reading our blog! We are really pleased with the feedback we have received and hope that the site is interesting and informative!
We have been in a whirlwind recently, it never rains but pours.
Since Christmas we were concentrating on the properties we had before we left London. We had builders round and Kitchen fitters, got quotes and drew plans. We negotiated what the lease would be and talked with the planners. When things got close to the end the final deals were completely one sided, we wouldn’t agree to a lease without planning permission (of course!- we are not completely insane!) and we had to let them go. We were very upset by this as we had put in so much time and effort as well as invested a great deal of emotion.
We picked our selves up fast after the black Friday and began the search again. This time we contacted more agents, looked further a field and considered more options (all options). We are taking the time to think about what we want and what we hope for in the future and hope that we will have the right place soon.
We have lots of serious soul searching to do and lots of discussions about what we can afford with the bank.
We have been to lots of nice restaurants and pubs (some not so nice) in the area though and are fast becoming experts in where to go for food and drink!
Currently we have two contenders in the running and we hope to know about these pretty soon.
We are very optimistic and will let you know how we get on!
