Well, having complained that car and house hunting was going slow yesterday, everything has now turned around! We are now the proud owners of a 1999 Ford Focus! The car is in great condition, and has 100k miles on the clock. Picked it up for 1690 pounds! Woohoo!
Unfortunately I didn't get any photos before it got dark this evening, and as its parked out the back of the apartment where there's very little light, I can't publish any photos tonight. But I'll do that tomorrow so you can all see our new ride.
And tomorrow we are off to look at 3 houses! All have some really good points - the most expensive is right in the town centre but is only 2 bedroom, the other two are a bit further out but are a bit cheaper. One has an application already, and another not immediately available, but it's a relief to have a few options coming up anyway!
So, more posts to come soon - car pics and, hopefully, house pics! Oh, and we had more snow today - on and off all day!
Life is grand!
Love to all,
Mick and Liv
