We took a posse of friends to view the house. Turns out that the french guy knows the guy showing us round. Both rugby players. Phew.
Great house. Just as good as we could expect. Lots of original features, lovely garden, all wood floors left. A complete tip (I'll get the pictures sorted later) but in a sorting stuff way not a neglected sort of way. All good.
Ended up by offering the asking price and the guy showing us round said he would tell the owner that it was sold and he took down the sign.
Much relief on our part. A house at last. Lots of discussion and planning.
Then tonight. Phone call from the guy who had shown us round. Had we rung the owner? No I thought you were doing that but no worries we will.
Rang the owner. Somehow it turned into a conversation of other people viewing, more money, nothing happening until January.....................................
So, yet again, from delight to What the Hell????????????
Rang and explained to french guy and he has rung the guy who showed us round and all is well with him. So what is going on?
And there was us thinking that the roller coaster was over.
