Date for house confirmed and a fleeting visit

My builder has just confirmed that next Thursday is definately the date I can move in to Stoke Bruerne - that's a huge weight of my mind and now I can really start working towards that date.  The removal firm and the storage company have been informed.

This morning Doug and James on Chance chanced by - it was good to meet both of you.  You will enjoy the Barking Creek trip and no you are not barking mad to go - it'll be great.  Hope to see you in Stoke Bruerne before too long.


  1. Congratulations, how exciting! I hope you will be very happy in your new home.
