Our house sold very quickly - in only a few days. We had a great real estate agent. She recommended viewings by appointment rather than an open house - A lot more work for her but better for us. The first viewing was for 3 couples, two of whom wanted to come back for a second look. The next day she made 2 more appointments for viewings later that week. Then the next day she called to say someone had made an offer (which we accepted). Now two weeks later the sale has become official and Missy’s garden will soon have new people to care of it and enjoy it.
We will be meeting the buyers tomorrow, but our agent said they want to keep the chickens and the fish and they love the garden. They sound like exactly the right sort of people for our house and garden. The chickens will be happy. I had found a potential new home for them, but now they don’t have to move which is better. Settling into a new flock can be rather traumatic until the pecking order is established.
Removalists have been arranged for 3 weeks’ time so we have started packing. It's going to be a busy time. There is still work to be done on the new house but it is ready to live in as is. Hopefully I'll be too busy to get too emotional at the thought of saying good-bye to the garden.
Another thing to consider is the future of Missy’s Garden (the blog). If I no longer have the garden there will be nothing much to blog about, but it is something I really enjoy. We will be starting a new garden from scratch (there's only dirt there at the moment) plus we will be discovering Bribie Island and whatever awaits us there. That should give me lots to write about
.......I think I might start a new blog for our new home.
