This is the bit I like least about buying a house. You’ve found the place, arranged the finance, had your offer accepted – and then everything grinds to a halt while the solicitors do their thing.
Matters haven’t been helped by my solicitor coming back from holiday today and me going away tomorrow morning. Thank goodness for email, at least if anyone comes up while I’m away I’ll be able to reply to it immediately.
In the meantime I shall just have to be patient a little longer. There’s the most amazing display of the northern lights up here tonight; clearly visible to the naked eye. Watching them dance from the study window makes my fretting about delays seem pretty insignificant really 🙂
