News from the House!

Now Playing: BB webfeeds

Topic: Eurotrash

No, not that house, although I have to admit to being a shade knackered after watching listening to them break every item in sight till four this morning - from *my* house.

After five months on the market, I marched in and sacked the estate agent, got a new one last Saturday, and today I accepted an offer!
Of course, it's not that simple or that easy, but after shopping at Lidl, living in Penge, having lukewarm baths and walking to work since February, this was certainly a new-knickers occasion, I can tell you.

Two working days to get an offer. I'm jazzed and tired and soooooo relieved.

So I won't blog about how they offered me five hundred for all my furniture, the cheeky bastards. (or how I would have accepted, either.)

Best Blo'te of the Day So Far:OnePotMeal
"You couldn?t remember buying the suit, but there it was.
People came into your office sometimes but never asked about work, never knew about Yees, only about the shirt(s) you were wearing, and you wondered how long you could get away with changing shirts all day long and doing no work, how long until you could retire and commit full-time to the search for a poet named Yees.
Meanwhile the poet who rented your old bedroom downstairs got a sunburn because your old room had so many windows. The spines of his books all faded until the titles and authors were gone.
You rubbed aloe into his peeling back, asked if he knew the work of a poet of Yees, but he said, No, no, I?ve never heard of this Yees. Are you sure he?s a poet at all."

I am jealous of your version of Big Brother, it sounds like exciting viewing. Big Brother here really blows. It is quite the dorkfest.

Sounds like you should of ditched the agent months ago......hopefully you do not have to wait long till closing. Congrats. =)

Oh don't worry, we had the most boring BB ever last year. The thirty year old virgin won, ffs!
The really really funny thing about the fights in BBUK5 is that they were all in fancy dress at the time. The guy who's shouting 'I am going to @#%$! kill you' in that clip (just added a visual link, too) is dressed as a happy clown with a painted red smile as he's wigging out. Oh beautiful irony!

Re: the agent. It was a shared activity with Tybalt. The difference in the last week was that it finally clicked that Tybalt doesn't want to deal with it - really really doesn't want to deal with it, even if it means it doesn't sell for six months more - so I decided to do it all myself. The funny thing .... ah.. no, I'll leave that one for a blog. ;?)

However it transpired, many congrats from here, as well. It's such a frustratingly stressful thing, and having done it thrice now, I know it's always a relief, even when you're only part way there.

And sorry, but I can't get on the BB bandwagon. The US version does blow. Chunks. Royally. Ugh.

What, you gave up on your blog? No updates for 7 months? Pull your finger out!

With any luck, the worst is past you (or almost so).

Congratulations on the house offer. Hard to believe that anywhere in the South East stays on the market for 5 months without any interest - must have been hopelessly shite estate agents!
