This buying a house malarky is a funny business.
I hadn’t really heard from my solicitors for a couple of weeks or so then they rang this morning and said that they have received all of the documents regarding the mortgage and they have completed all of the searches on the property and they are ready for me to go and sign for the flat!!
I’m not sure exactly what signing for the flat means… but she did say that once I had signed then I could be in within a week… in fact, her words were: “If you come in and sign on Monday you could be in by this time next week” – aarrgghhh. Am going to the solicitors at 10am on Monday morning to sign the papers and then going straight to Ikea!
It’s funny how you feel like nothing is happening but really it’s all going on behind the scenes and then the next thing you know it’s time to move and you haven’t even packed! Eeek! Am very, very excited but still have so much to get… shopping this weekend me thinks :)
