Thanks for the lovely comments but ...

we're still here! Boy, what a week we've had. Our buyer decided to pull out of the sale of our property on Tuesday, the very day we were supposed to exchange contracts. All very strange and he has really given us an explanation as to why he's put us through such heartache. The deposit money had been sent over ready for Tuesday morning and the remaining money had been arranged for completion yesterday, but over the weekend something must have happened for him to change his mind.

So, you can imagine how we all felt on Tuesday evening - devastated to say the least. Tears, anger and many hugs later we decided to try for another buyer rather than pull out altogether. We're lucky that the owners of our new house were willing to continue should we find a new buyer quickly. On Wednesday, the fabulous team at the estate agents pulled together and sent several new viewers round to see the house (in all it's glorious boxed up, filthy with dust, state) and by pure chance, at 6 p.m., we had found a new buyer. This is someone who was apparently keen on our property before, but was too late to snap it up! She couldn't believe her luck that it had come back on the market. She's also decided to use the same solicitor as the previous chap and therefore take on all the paper work and hopefully finish the deal in as quick a time as possible. Naturally we're over the moon but are trying not to get too excited, just in case!

Living out of boxes is interesting! If we ever decide to do this again, I will ensure that each box has a complete list of what's inside. Much to the annoyance of the K and B, I've managed to salvage their work so we can at least finish off the "light" project while we wait for a new removal date!Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Oh you poor things - what an utter and total nightmare.

Hugs for that and as for living out of boxes - argh! Sympathy from someone who knows!

Oh how awful. I'm so glad the estate agents got their act together for you and it sounds cautiously optimistic about the new buyer then. It'll all be worth it in the end when you can finally settle into your new home, I'm sure! Keeping fingers crossed for you. And giggling about you having found the kids' work ;-)

So sorry to hear about for first buyer. Hope things move quickly with the new buyer and that you are in your new home before you know it.
