We have spent the last two weeks in frantic activity, turning out everything and turning our house into the show home that the agent wanted to see when the photos were taken for the website. That's what you have to do to sell a house in the UK these days.
The kitchen before.
To say this has been blooming hard work is the understatement of the year.
Our garage is full of the excess contents of the house that littered all the surfaces such as the kitchen worktops, bathroom and other furniture. That’s after we had filled my dad’s garage and spare room with as much excess as we could get into the space available.
We do have an awful lot of stuff. It’s tempting to just scoop it all up and take it to the charity shop or tip. In reality, it represents so many chapters of our lives so far that we are painstakingly sifting through each cupboard and each drawer to inspect the contents and decide properly what we want to keep, what we can do without and what we can throw away.
It’s not easy.
We are in limbo, playing the waiting game. We can’t move forward now until the house is sold and the money is in the bank. This is not easy for a Sagittarian, whose main accomplishments do not include being patient.
Have a good week !!
