A bit in limbo

This is a bit of a moany post to be fair. Hubby and I are in the process of buying a house, it needs some work but when we're through with it, it will be our home for the foreseeable future. We saw the house in September and put an offer in which was accepted, there is no chain so in theory we could have been done within 8 weeks. We're still waiting, the estate agent seems uninterested, the vendors solicitor seems to be a little wet behind the ears and has required "prompting" by our solicitor to get any answers to our questions. On Friday we went and signed all the paperwork, we're now waiting for the solicitors to agree when to exchange contracts. I do hope that this is sorted soon, it seems to have dragged on far too long.

I have so many plans which I can't proceed with until we are in the house. I want to get into the garden but there is little point getting any seedlings on the go as it will be just more fragile things to move between homes otherwise.

I can't buy any of the white goods we're going to need for the house, so as an interim measure I have bought a multi-pan and also a tabletop twin hob. So at least we can have hot meals once we've moved in while we wait for a cooker. Washing clothes will either have to be done by hand for delicates or taken to parents until a washer turns up, and as its still quite cold outside a coolbox in the garden will have to be our fridge. We'll get by and it will be an adventure. But we have to get into the house first.
