The call we've been waiting for

Oh ............................... my ............................................ goodness ..................................................

We have received the handover date for the house.

wwwwwwwwwwoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo hhhhhhhhhhhhhooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

John just rang ..... I answered the phone with 'hello' .. he responded with 'guess what' (I hoped this wasn't going to be a long drawn out process because I was just about to go and get my daily latte fix). 'What' was my answer. A brief silence and the words followed '24 May'.

This date takes us to 16 weeks and 1 day for the house to be built. Not too bad at all.

We have a walk through on the 17th May to go through all of the bits and pieces that need to be fixed. I'm hoping that this isn't too onerous as we have been giving him the fixes as we find them.

It will take about a week to put the timber floors and carpet in so I guess move in date will be around the 30 May.

Far too excited to work now so I'm sure there will be nothing done for the rest of the day. (nothing unusual my boss would say). Cheeky bugger.

Countin' down the days, witcha! :)

How excitement! I'm sure there's a better word than 'congrats' but CONGRATS all the same!

If they work according to your timetable, we should be in in another 12 weeks. Can't wait either!
