Will we or won’t we move in tomorrow – that is the question. Tomorrow (1st March) is meant to be the day our house is finished and we get the keys. But there are still a few things to do – to meet the end of the contract, the workmen may well have to stay late tonight. The painter has to return and touch up various spots on the walls which have been identified and marked. That won’t take too long, presumably. And the good news is that our stove has finally been installed. But we notice that one of the doors from the kitchen cupboards has disappeared. Maybe it needs to be replaced – we will wait and see.
The workers were very busy outside, with the bricklayer just finishing off our letterbox. And very nice it look too, even better when we get our very own house number put on the front.
And barrow full loads of top soil were been spread and levelled for when it is time for the lawn seed to be sown. The rails for the back fence were being put in place, so there has been a lot of work done today.
We are really getting excited as tomorrow is “D Day”. We will patiently wait in the caravan tomorrow till the lawyer phones to tell us that the Code of Compliance is all sealed and signed, and we can start moving in. Which won’t be all done on the first day - we will take our time unloading the lock-up and moving all those boxes!
