Let Agreed.

20 days until the big move! All of a sudden it seems much closer! Last weekend we went shopping for our 'white goods', which all are stainless steel/silver! Spent an absolute fortune! The original plan was to buy a 55cm temporary oven to fit in the space already there because we were undecided about what we wanted. When we got to Currys we were unable to buy 'said oven' in store because they didn't stock it, so we were advised to go home and do it online. Which led us to go a whole lot more searching for either a cheaper or better option as it was meant to be temporary.

This is what we ended up with.

A 90cm, induction hob range with two ovens and a grill!! It won't fit and none of our saucepans will work on it either!! So, Mum has agreed to buy me all new pans for our house warming gift and we will be spending our first day taking (at least) one of the cupboards out of the kitchen and chopping back the worktop! I really hope it's as easy as I've made it sound! I get the feeling it probably wont be though!

The last few days I have spent cleaning our little cottage as we had the estate agents showing people round yesterday. I literally spent 3 hours scrubbing the oven - I will definitely not be neglecting my new one the way I have this one! Scott took a work from home day to be here whilst people were looking round and I took the dog out as he's not meant to be here anyway! Typically the weather was lovely all morning and shocking all afternoon. I walked around Vassals Park for nearly two hours in the sopping wet! I started the new years 'diet and exercise' rubbish yesterday so had set my walking app going which tracked my route..

As you can see, I managed to rack up 4.6 miles wandering around aimlessly. By about half way the dog wasn't looking too impressed either. 3 people came to see the cottage, all of them loved it and it has been let! It's a bit sad really, we have had a lovely time here, and will miss it. I am soo glad we have that over and done with in one afternoon though! Would have been a right pain in the arse having to tidy up for viewings all the time when we want to sort out and pack up!

This morning I finally sorted out the strawberries and other plants which will come with us. Many of them had gone rotten, probably because of all the rain we have had but I still have enough to take! They could do with some good quality compost but ill sort all that later on. I also dug up a bush planted in the border by the window and put that in a pot ready to go. I might well take some rose clippings from the existing bushes but its probably the wrong time of year - Ill have to ask the step father about that!

I'm not sure what I'm going to do re. gardening/veg patch etc. in the new garden. At the moment it's pretty uninspiring. I think were need to bed in a little before I will be able to see where its going. I definitely hope for better luck than my previous attempts though!

The new garden, waiting for some love!
