We've sold.... 6 weeks, 4 days and counting before we can move in though!

I feel like the Tasmanian devil or whatever that whirlwind cartoon is called!  I haven't stopped.  However we have some fantastic news:
 
WE HAVE EXCHANGED ON THE FARM!!!!!

What a huge relief.  I cannot beging to tell you how stressed we have been over the last feww weeks or so.  I can feel it melting away though I have been left with the worst headache!

We don't actually move in until 15th January but we are counting the days 1 by 1.  Currently we're living at a family member's house who is working out of the country for the most part of that time, so we've very lucky in that respect.  Having said that it isn't easy to up sticks into temporary accomodation, only to do it again in 6 weeks and 4 days!

So in the mean time, we now need to order the stables, plan the deliveries required to get the horses to the farm and think about what livestock we will want and when. 

I'm going to keep a notebook with me for the next few weeks as I have a feeling "good ideas" will come at the most inappropriate times.

Let the countdown begin!

I thought I better post something to let you know we haven't dropped off the face of the earth, though at times it's felt like it.  Over the last few weeks to month or so we have been in a state of turmoil with the sale of our house.  The buyer's mortgage had a condition on it meaning they needed an extra report completing on our house.  After lots of sleepless nights, upset and general stress we have finally heard from our buyer that they are now ready to proceed.  Finally!!  We are over the moon!

So now the packing in earnest begins.  We're moving everything from the top of the house to the bottom, specifically the dining room.  It's hard to know what to pack and how - it has been a while since we last moved!  As I'm packing the boxes, my mind if drifting off to what meals we can cook in the farm house kitchen and how we will get on using the Aga.

Hopefully the Christmas decorations will be going straight up if we move in this side of Christmas!  Saves on the dusting anyway :).
