Me in my baggy shorts in the newspaper

Several weeks ago I mentioned I had contacted a man who writes editorial pieces for the Thursday property section of the The East Anglian Daily Times our local regional daily paper to see if he would do a bit about our smallholding in the hope it would help with the sale. He called round one Saturday morning in September and chatted over a coffee and we had been expecting the piece to appear ever since.
Finally it was in last Thursdays edition......READ HERE  Go to page 27 

Wish I hadn't been wearing those baggy shorts!


I wonder if it will do any good for finding a buyer who is actually ready to proceed, so far the only people interested have had houses to sell and that means a long wait. Hey Ho........... it'll soon be Christmas - and nobody wants to move in December.

Thanks for the comments about birthday coincidences, seems we are not the only family with birthdays on the same day.

Back Soon

  7. That's a brilliant piece, nice to be able to have a read of it.

    Hopefully it will be a good sales tool too and should drum up at least a bit of interest .... and never mind the baggy shorts, you look lovely in the photos :-)

  8. Pleased for you that David Vincent wrote a nice article on your home and smallholding. I am also interested in reading it fully. The last articles on line at EADT under EA life are from Thursday 8th October so perhaps they run 2 weeks behind.

  11. Fantastic article and it was lovely to see you with all your home grown produce. Don't be so sure that people won't move in December-we moved 27 years ago on the day os the Lockerbie tragedy-we only live 50 miles north of there . Good luck with whatever happens in the future. Catriona

  14. That article is bound to do some good Sue. I had a friend who had her house on the market and thought she would never sell it. Then one day folk turned up and wanted it immediately and there was a rush for it to go through and her to move out. You never know, so be prepared.

    And by the way, when we moved into this house we did so at the start of December, so some people DO move in December! You never know. fingers crossed for you xx

    p.s Me? Go overboard? Never!! ;o)
