Probably not really for this part of the forum, but this is where I am most of the time!

Today (roll of drums) I sold my house in Bedfordshire! This may not seem like a big deal, but my DS and I have been living in rented accommodation in Marlow since 10th March (in order to ensure eligibility for SWB) whilst paying the mortgage in Bedfordshire, due to a VERY slow chain that SHOULD have completed middle of March!

So today I am only paying for one house rather than two - no need to sell any more possessions on ebay to pay for both houses. Things have all fallen into place - put house up for sale and sold it, rented apartment, found out what VR was, took 11+, got into SWB - all within 6 months. Now. What shall we do next ...

Congratulations!

With a track record like that I expect you could do anything you wanted :D

Congratulations, faitaccompli!

Do you fancy taking on the recession, the hosepipe ban and the Olympic tickets fiasco now? I'm sure you could juggle all three with consummate ease and sort them out in a jiffy. :D

Thanks everyone!

Olympic tickets - don't get me started ... because I stupidly bought some football ones in the first ballot to ensure I at least got something, I am now relegated to the back of the queue for the decent tickets. Grrrrrr!!!
