PostSubject: Ive finally moved   Fri Jan 10, 2014 10:34 pm

We finally got into our new house on Wednesday but   what a shock we had   

My solicitor rang to say the money had been received by the vendors solicitor at 11am which meant the house was then ours
I wasnt    expecting the estate agent to call me because they have been absolutely s**t all the way through this sale so by 12 i rang them to be told they knew the money had gone through but they couldnt get hold of the owner to get the keys for us    As our furniture wasnt being delivered i said id just go round and get the keys direct at about 2pm so they could have a few more hours to move out
At 2pm we went round and i couldnt believe it    the house was still half full   
not with the big furniture thank god but with loads of other stuff     all the kitchen cupboards were still full, the bathroom toiletries were all still there every room had bags and bags of stuff pictures were all still hanging up the washing machine was still plumbed in two massive wardrobes were still there     but the owner was nowhere to be seen   her friend was there instead standing around not doing much   i explained who i was so she said she would try phone the owner but wasnt sure if she could get through so i basically told her i was coming in anyway as the house was legally mine
I then had a good look round and was totally gob smacked    there were four sheds all full to the brim a full garage and atleast a large skip load of cut down trees in the front garden    
When i say full i do mean full   this family must have been hoarding stuff for years    
The friend put the owner on the phone and she said she would be up in her car to get the last few things    i had to tell her there was no way she was leaving all the stuff in the sheds  nearly all of it was soaking wet and mouldy as all the sheds had leaks  There were kids toys wellies socks shoes etc strewn all over the garden i picked up about 15 balls    a rusty 15ft trampoline a punchbag tied to the tree you name it it was in that garden   
I dont know how i managed it but i kept my cool and when the owner eventually came back about 4pm i told her to remove everything from the house but i wanted her to come back Friday to get the contents of the sheds garage and the garden rubbish
I couldnt do Thursday as i had a hospital appointment in Liverpool  
While waiting id gathered all the remaining stuff and put it all in the dining room to make it quicker for them to take     She wanted to leave the washing machine but i got oh to disconnect it and her removal guys did eventually take it     I decided id keep the wardrobes       It still took another 2 hours to get the rest of the stuff out but eventually i did get the keys   I suggested that it would be easier if she came and got what she wanted on Friday then paid for a skip and we would chuck the rest    so at 8.30 this morning a skip was delivered and the driver was banging on the door asking for payment   i explained the situation and said there was no way i was paying as i hadnt ordered it and he would have to get his boss to call the other woman  To be fair they had arranged the skip for 9am and arrived at that time to pay for it      It took from 9am until 4pm to empty everything and the skip was overflowing  I was actually worried they would refuse to take it that full but they did     Everything has gone except for about half a skips worth of tree cuttings but ive told her we will sort that out  We will need to get a skip anyway because the sheds need to be taken down and chucked before they fall down  i think the crap in them was holding them up   
I did feel sorry for her as she has not long lost her husband and i offered to help but she insisted that they did it themselves  I did get oh to chuck some of the heavier stuff in the skip before he went to work     She actually said it was therapeutic for her and found a few sentimental items
We also took some of her sentimental plaques and ornaments off the house for her   
The 15ft trampoline is still on the drive  It was too big to go in the van and too rusty to unscrew so they are going to come up over the weekend and carry it away     
If i ever mention about moving again can someone please CERTIFY ME!   
Oh and to top it off we have no furniture until Monday so are sleeping on a £10 blow up bed that slowly deflates during the night   so a bad back and no sleep aswell   
  for the essay bet you all gave up reading half way through

PostSubject: Re: Ive finally moved   Sat Jan 11, 2014 6:14 pm

I am sooooo tired      there is so much to do and i just havent got the inclination or energy to do it today   

The house is really dirty and needs loads of work doing to it but it has brilliant potential   
I cant wait to get started     but will have to do stuff as and when we can afford it    
I was hoping the kitchen would be ok for a while but tbh all the wall units will need to be taken down and half the base units need to go straight away aswell      they arent safe     you can move them from side to side so could actually collapse      I knew they werent much good when i bought the property but not this bad      The bathroom is quite nice but it is so dirty      Theres a jacuzzi shower bath but the bath is filthy and the glass shower screen is so covered in dirt and limescale you cant see through it    
Mickey came in and decided to have a poo on the floor    he is so sensitive to change  and worries about everything    
The dogs are very quiet today and Mickey was sick earlier but again i think its because they are a bit stressed out      im sure once the furniture arrives on Monday and they have their sofa to sit on they will feel better      Im caging them over night and when we go out atm until we are all settled    
We met the neighbours next door yesterday and they seem really nice and friendly and the other neighbour on the other side have posted a New Home card through and written a lovely message in it so they sound really nice aswell      Both neighbours have dogs   Ive been told the one i havent met does dog dancing with hers so i will have to check that out    
I think once we have tidied the place up its going to be a lovely house so  :fingers crossed i can feel more settled here   
I will try get some photos when i get my camera next week  Its in storage

 @ Fred its these bloody male dogs theyre filthy buggers   

Yes cant wait to get the furniture    

I had to speak to my solicitor about the stuff being here on Wednesday to make sure it got shifted it really was a joke how much was here   
I felt really bad as the lady who moved out had recently lost her husband and she is a really nice person    She is just sooooooo laid back   she just assumed we would deal with all the rubbish      I think she may of thought her removal guys were going to move it all   but they werent interested as most of it was rubbish that had been in the sheds going mouldy for years by the looks of it

  No Shelley i dont intend on moving again for a long time   

I will still check out rightmove tho because you never know what will come on the market   
I cant help myself   

Mickey has been better today    The little bugger was sitting in the conservatory checking out the sheep in the field at the back    they were right up to the back fence today    so we wont be letting the dogs out to run about freely until we make sure the fence is definately dog proof   
Cant wait for my furniture to arrive tomorrow

Mickey is sprawled out on it in the dining room atm     Keira is in the lounge with me lying on her favourite rug    
I think they seem more settled since the furniture arrived    mind you it might be because they are totally knackered      OH took them out for a few hours while the removal guys were here to keep them out of the way

Hubby is on awkward work shift atm so we havent been able to move things about yet   
Even although the house is a state and nothings unpacked beds not even put up yet   i actually feel happier here already    
The dogs seem calmer aswell    
Ive been and fetched the dog food from Landywoods today and filled the freezer so thats one job out of the way  Atleast i can try get them back on the food they love    
Theres so much to do    I didnt realise we had so much stuff   the conservatory is full of  boxes now

surprising what shyte you find you have when you move .... We've remembered we've still got a load of boxes stored in the caravan we've no more room

We were unpacked in just short of two weeks.... Working 18 hours a day knackered us though
