After partially hi-jacking @Trunky 's thread I thought I'd play fair and start my own. We had confirmation of the offer acceptance today and so proceed to check-out. It's been a long while coming after sixteen months of trying to sell our previous home on the Isle of Man in a stagnant market, and now a further eleven to buy here in Scotland. The bungalow is standing empty so we hope to be in by the end of September. The gardens are quite a bit smaller than my previous one's but enough for my decrepit body to cope with. Apart from a handful of trees, some of which may have to come down, I have a blank canvass to play with. This was taken from about a mile away, looking at the back of the bungalow in the centre of the picture. The house to it's left is deceiving from this distance as it can't be seen from ours and is a good shouting distance away.
