My buyers' solicitors have ceased their quibbling - they'll exchange 28th March, to complete on 30th April.
The sellers of 2 Oakwood have found a new home, with tenants who are leaving on 20th April. They'll exchange on 22nd April, also to complete on 30th April.
It is time, I do believe, for a hackneyed phrase...
How about "Don't count your chickens"? or "There's many a slip 'twixt cup and lip"?
Jolly happy, though. Would love to move straight from here to there without storing my universe in crates inbetween.
