On the move...

We've exchanged contracts and are upsizing house. This time - unlike an aborted attempt last year -  it's going ahead. It means another twelve years on the mortgage but the difference with this place is that it has plenty of self-contained letting potential should things go awry with jobs, income, funding kids through university... Good parking too.

(It used to be the MUSE bassist's house at about the time they first headlined at Reading. This was a big plus with Mrs E-K but didn't come to light until we were sent documents at advanced stages.)

We're not the only ones on the move. Adorable !  I still get this excited about trains every day. A big thanks to Anon.

Good luck and well done for remaining sane. Moving house is fucking horrendous, my last time was in 2009, prior to that I'd moved three times in 10 years. The worst fuckers I found in the process were the removals companies that I've used twice in that time (I moved myself the rest with family/friends) - no careful chaps in brown coats just oiks. You are well rid of your neighbours by the sound of it. my last two moves were because of utter wankers for neighbours - I was prepared to go to gaol for one lot but again the threat of physical force one night + me bringing the problems to the wife's employers door (long story - but effective) was enough for them to stop long enough for me to sell. These people are like toddlers as you say.
Best wishes for a smooth move.

O/T but this is priceless, E-K.

Madeline's first train ride. You simply must watch it...again and again.

Lovely.

I'm still like that now !

Thanks Ranter and AK.

I've shortened the post as you can see. It makes Ranter's comment look a bit random if I don't mention it. But yes. I'm delighted to be rid of the neighbours.

Wow! Well done Kev. We exchanged on Friday but are moving into rental in order to wait for the house we are after.

Good luck with the move.

beast said...

GOOD!
I can have my own bedroom next time

Better than staying at Lils
Remember how she made us sleep in her garden?

Electro-Kevin said...

Beast - 'twas a wicked way to treat guests. And what must the neighbours have thought ???

I expect they'll be glad to see the back of the likes of Lilith, Elby, Calfy ...

Electro-Kevin said...

Thanks to : Woman, DtP and Lilith.

lilith said...

Our next garden will be much more comfy!

KEV
The worst thing was that we were banned from the lavvies
Thats why we both peed in her BBQ and shat in her garden (+;

Thud said...

Congrats, are we supposed to believe the muse connection was an accident? ha!

Electro-Kevin said...

Lilith - Will their be ... beds in your new garden ???

Beast - Psst. Don't say anything but I used her lavvie. And flushed twice.

Thud - Thanks. I think I've been duped. I admit it.
