Mousie Update

I see I was missed! Gosh.
Just a quick excited up-date but I have had an acceptable offer for the house above the guide price and I took it yesterday!!! Of course it is subject to the usual surveys, searches etc but here's hoping as they say.

It has been quite a hectic few days with viewings, haggling of price etc and trying to sort a few days away at Christmas to Florida. I have also been out to dinner twice! How I found time to be married I will never know!! Seriously though things are moving swiftly along and I am sure it will all hit me hard after Christmas and when I actually move, hopefully in February. I havent even had time to be poorly which I usually am at this time of year.

Hope all is well with everyone - but no time to blog at the moment.
love mousie

PS Johnnie Depp unfortunately, contrary to local rumour here, did not view. I would never have been able to keep that a secret though I believe he has purchased something nearby!! I will keep you all posted.

Preseli Mags's Avatar Oooh! How exciting! Fingers crossed that the sale and the move go through smoothly. It's a shame that Mr Depp didn't come to view. That would have been fun. Good luck with the next stage, xxPM

Cait's Avatar Good news Mousie, I just know everything is going to go well for you.

Tattie.............I love Alastair McGowan, I s'pose I have peculiar taste in men (!) not sure what Johnny Depp looks like.....( I can hear you all exclaiming what is wrong with this woman?).
Terry Waite, hostage chappie?

Milla's Avatar Blimey, Mousie, that's moving fast! Almost like a TV programme. Think how long poor Exmoor and I took to sell. Am so pleased for you. And your stripes look glorious.

Faith's Avatar Glad its going smoothly Mousie, lets hope that it continues. Took me 16 months or something to sell old house, and I had to live with exhub2 cos he refused to move out - before I moved in with he who is now hub3! Don't complicate your life with men I say!

Withy Brook's Avatar So glad to hear how well everything seems to be going. Keep well and enjoy a real rest (I hope) in Florida if you get there.

Camilla's Avatar Absolutely brilliant news Mousie, I am so pleased for you and above the asking price, that is wonderful too.

I read in our local paper a while ago that J.Depp would be visiting Suffolk. Christmas in Florida sounds fab Mousie, have a lovely holiday. Good to know that you are keeping your chin up. Best of luck.

Frances's Avatar Hooray to you, Mousie!

Now, all you need do is pack a few lightweight bits and get thee to the airport. I am so happy for your happiness, on the crest of the new year.

If your passage does give you time in New York, please do call.

Pondside's Avatar Good news, Mousie. I was glad to see your post and know that things are moving along well. Florida for Christmas will be just the thing!!! You are a trouper!!

Pipany's Avatar Oh that's brilliant news Mousie. The very best of luck to you and I'm sure next year will be brilliant for you. Onwards and upwards! xx

Exmoorjane's Avatar Fabulous news, Mousie....though I would suspect you'll cast a tear as you leave your stunning house and immaculate lawns....but new lawns beckon! Yes, amazed (and t hrilled) that some house sales don't take 2+ years!!! Smile
Florida lovely at this time of year - how perfect.....

Posted by: Exmoorjane on 12th Dec 2007 at 08:05AM

Twas me who asked Mousie. Great news and keep on going! x

Posted by: @themill on 12th Dec 2007 at 08:38AM

Countrymousie's Avatar Oh you lot - absolutely overwhelmed with all your comments.
It isnt over till the fat lady sings they say - so here is hoping but I have the say the house is lovely and we have worked for 17 years to make it do - but my new home although very modern is fab and has loads of lawns and garden and will give me that new start I am sure. The family who will hopefully come here are delightful and I loved them on sight. They have two tiny little girls and loved my home as it was - no need to extend for 30 in the kitchen or an airstrip in the cornfield. Still a look at old Depp would have been the icing on the cake! xx

Posie Rosie's Avatar Mousie fabulous news, good to hear from you and just you enjoy those dinners and the days in Florida, grit your teeeth through Christmas if necessary and the sun will be coming round the corner!! Best wishes, Posie.xx

Ivy's Avatar Hope your luck streak lasts very very long. So much has changed in your life this year so why should body and mind stick to old habits (like being poorly at this time of the year) Hope everything goes smoothly with sell and buy and you can enjoy Florida.
Oh and Johnny Depp is in Paris at the moment I was told by a friend who was supposed to meet him there. No wonder he missed the chance to meet you.

Posted by: Ivy on 12th Dec 2007 at 11:11AM

Westerwitch's Avatar Oh Mousie so pleased for you that everything is going well - you really deserve to have a smooth ride. Have a wonderful time in Florida and do pop in here and let us know all about it - if you have time.

And if things hit you and get a bit rough then we are all here for you. Hope you can make the Calendar girls shoot - that might help if you are feeling down.

Shake that tail Mousie and never let the bergers get you down.
