Still trying not to spend too much

Another viewing on Friday,  "sorry too small".........again....
Another viewing Tuesday morning will probably be the same

We had visitors on Saturday so there was a bit of extra spending for food. But what I bought will also feed us for a couple more days too, so that's OK

We took our friends over to see where the cottage is, just to make it a bit easier for them to find - it's not easily found! I rang to tell the lady who owns it that we would be walking by just to show our friends where the house was and she said she wouldn't be there but we could peer in the windows, which felt much to nosy to actually do.
So we just walked by and got all excited again about getting there as soon as we can.

Sunday was a grey dismal sort of day, we thought about walking to the library but didn't bother to go out at all. I got the tapestry glasses case finished by lining the back of the stitching with a piece of felt, then stitched myself a new scissor-keeper and made one small Christmas card from a free kit that I've had for ages. We also watched Andy Murray  play in the final to become top tennis player at the end of year - brilliant.

Got a bit worried this morning when our youngest said she would call in to see us after taking Florence for an ultra-sound, but it seems all breech babies have a scan to check for hip problems. She's  six weeks now and growing but is still a titch, just about got a small smile.

Hope everyone is surviving the varying weather in other parts of the country........ windy weather that caused so much damage in Somerset, Devon and Dorset, floods and snow up north, we've missed most of it so far.

  1. I don't think I could have resisted peeping through the windows, although if there are near neighbours they might have called the police!

      A couple of months and I hope we'll be in anyway - fingers crossed.

  2. What an exciting start you will be having to 2017 with a new house. I am sure you will be really happy there. Your current property will be just right for someone, I am sure. They must know the room sizes before they arrive?

    We have NEVER had a floor plan here - since the recession, so few houses sell in Wales that estate agents prune the outgoings to the bone - no printed brochure (photocopy of details if you must have one), no floor plan, we've never even had a For Sale sign up outside!

    We have a VIEWING though, right on Christmas ((19th) so the house will be looking very festive and smelling of mulled wine . . .

    Glad you are continuing frugal. I need to be too!

    1. I wondered if your beautiful place was still up for sale.
      When we were looking to move west we noticed that some houses really get stuck. One we looked at in July when we were in Builth is still for sale.

  3. Hope you get a buyer soon Sue.
    Isn't that first smile from a baby the most precious and magical thing? -x-

    1. She's a bit of a grumpy fidgetty miss so a smile is hard won at the moment.

    1. We were but because the house we want is way more expensive than we planned we have to sell to give us something to live on as rental wouldn't be enough. I'm not sure we really want to be landlords anyway

    2. Trust me, you don't want to be landlords. BTDT.

    3. Echo that. Being a landlord is not a route to a happy life.

  5. Fingers crossed for a sale. Do people not read the details regarding properties.....room sizes are clearly written down!!

  6. I just might have peeked through the windows anyway. Keeping my fingers crossed for the perfect match up of buyer and house for you.

    God bless.

  7. It's all very exciting. I think I would have had to have a peek through the windows, just a little one.
    Good to read Florence is doing well. I remember having to take Lily back to the hospital the day after she was born for an additional check, only because we came home early. We were treated like royalty and everything was just fine. How wonderful to get a little smile.
    I hope you get a buyer for your bungalow soon. X

  8. I hope you sell your little house soon. I have a friend who is selling house they live in and people are so picky or want to see it now, when they are to call the agent first. They've had a hard time finding a place to move to as everything is so expensive. I'm glad we aren't moving. Been in one spot for 27 years next month! Just need to keep downsizing! Praying granddaughter is fine and so adorable they are!
    blessings,

  9. Having had permission I could not have resisted a peek! Hope all goes well with selling and the move.

  10. Best of luck to you on the sale, fingers crossed it is before Christmas to give you an extra special reason to celebrate.

  11. It will take the right buyer for your place, and not necessarily someone just starting out. I'd think someone newly "empty nest" would be ideal? Many of us who are a bit older know home trends pass quickly. As for a low spend Nov., ours evaporated with eye exams (and new glasses), car registration and prices so low at the grocery stores I was compelled to seriously stock up. The good news is we've enough food to last through December, other than milk and fresh produce as needed. Good thing. We've got 10 birthdays and 2 anniversaries in our family between Dec. 5th and Jan. 5th, but this year most will just be getting nice cards.

  12. I hope you get your place sold! I thought there would be lots of people interested. They are always going on about how there aren't enough bungalows.

    I'm not sure I'd be able to peek in the windows either! It would make me feel quite guilty (not that there is anything to feel guilty about).

    We had our first snow here over the weekend. Really pretty but not a lot of fun. We did go for a little walk on Sunday. Brrr it was cold! Got some nice pictures of our snow though.

    Have a great week

  13. I'm finding it a very expensive month. Having a patient at home with a recovering appetite means he is eating me out of house and home. A top up shop at Asda last night 70 blooming quids!! And there wasn't even any treat stuff, unless you count the £2 LED lights I bought for me and the £1 bag of haribo for himself!!

  14. It's exciting to move if stressful After spending a small fortune on our house this last year I now want to move somewhere on the coast. Babies are such a joy aren't they? I have a new little granddaughter Priya who delights us with her beautiful smiles she is nearly four weeks now and changing every day I just can't gegcsnough of her.

  15. I'm sure your house will sell soon. There's nothing as queer as house buyers. I'm sure some of them make appointments to view because they have nothing else to do and fancy a nosey. We had a two bedroomed on the market years ago and a couple turned up and the first thing they said was "we really want a 3 bed". Honestly, some people, complete time wasters. xx
