House




Well, it's official. I'm buying a house (that's it above). I've had a long chat with the lovely lady who owns the house in Uxbridge and she said I was the answer to their prayers, because without me having come along, they would have lost the house in the country that they want to buy. So I have to go through with it now 'cos she's so nice that I couldn't bear to let her down. She loves horse-riding and hubby flies micro-lights and they are moving to a place with a livery stable next door and an airfield up the road where he can do his flying from.

The garden of the new house has a sparrows' nest and blackbirds' next, and feeders everywhere. Some of her lovely paintings were on the wall and the house has a very nice feel to it. It's also got something I have always wanted, a bedroom with no neighbours on either side. So I am going ahead, but oh, how wish I could pick it up and move it to North London - where it would probably cost £750,000!

Here is a pic of the garden. It faces north but still seems to get a lot of sun.

It looks lovely - a friendly house.

Fingers crossed that nothing goes wrong! There are two double and one single bedroom, a 15 ft x 12 ft lounge, a dining room, downstairs cloakroom and a pretty upstairs bathroom. The area is a bit studenty, being close to the university. Hope there won't be too many noisy parties. If I get broke,I can always rent a room to a student.

I can envision at the back...a hammock or swinging chair (with very comfortable cushions of course), perhaps with an umbrella for shade, a couple of potted flowers... iced tea at the ready...and a good book or a snooze :)

The lady is leaving behind the two hooks for a hammock - and I've got a hammock!!!
