I got thrown out of the house yesterday, leaving Graham and the estate agent free and uncluttered to show viewers round. One of us has to be here to ensure Dolly’s safety but to be honest, it’d be a lot less strainful for us to go out for coffee and a bun. Or anything.
As it is, it’s much better for Graham to do the cat-guardian duty. In spite of all my efforts I can’t keep my grumpy old man side hidden when my home is being invaded. Especially when overhearing a remark from the viewer to the effect that “it’s a shame the house doesn’t have a drive and an attached garage.” Well, foopey whuckin’ DOO!
The woman loved the house, though, so the jury is still out. Our agent has promised to make best efforts to get a verdict out of them today, which is good, leaving us with an element of hope.
The agent told me yesterday that, since reducing our price, our house is far and away the most active of their portfolio, with lots of appearances in web searches, and clicks galore. Again, there’s an element of hope in that.
But, it’s far too lovely a day to be worrying about selling and buying houses. Sunshine is free to all who are brave enough to go out and enjoy it. And I’m determined to drag Graham away from his computer and for us to go out and feel the rays.
