Timing

Monday, we went back to the house to meet the vendors there and have another look round. Since the former occupant died, we wondered if we could perhaps make an offer on some of the contents of the house. None of the funiture is exactly what we want, but we don’t have much and we’ll have to furnish the entire house. We thought that it would tide us over until we could afford the furniture we want. So we made an offer for some sofas, a dining table and a bench in the garden.

Tuesday, P takes a call from family members. It’s all change: cousins, aunts and grandparents are switching houses and there will be surplus… guess… sofas and a dining table. For free. And in better nick.

Wednesday, we phone the estate agents and renogotiate the lot down to just the garden bench.
