I´ve got a busy day tomorrow

plus the next few days.

I had arranged to see an estate agent in the morning to view 3 properties, I found out today we are seeing another in the afternoon to view another 3. OH wants to go to the opening of his mates new cafe/bar and we have to be back by 6pm ish to collect Epi from her babysitter. It is a large area that we are looking over between La Manga, San Javier, Las Palas and Tallante. Now that will not mean anything to most of you but believe me it´s a lot of running around. Mind I get to see my 5bed/2bath with pool house, that I will probably have to reject because it is isolated :-(

Then Thursday I have to take mother out for lunch, and show her all the properties we have seen.

Friday OH has the day off so we have decided to take a drive out and about to look at villages and travel times.

As much as I am sighing about it all I have to own up to being a little tiny wee bit excited. Part of me is so very scared to look too soon in case Mums sale falls through but the other part knows I have to look and discount because if the sale goes through as planned we should complete in a month :-0 and I need to be able to move forward soon after.

So Busy Days here we come.

Happy Easter everyone :-D

Uzzi, I'm SO excited for you :-D

Can't wait to hear how you get on - keep us posted!


UzziWithTears Report 26 Mar 2013 19:19

Thanks Wend I will keep posted. I feel as if this is the 1st place I have ever bought. *flutterbies in the stomache"

I so want to find the right place, and I want to do it NOW :-D

I've got butterflies for you Uzzi, but I know it's going to be a hectic time for you. That villa is lovely but no good if you are too far from civilisation (shops, etc)

Having looked at dozens of properties over 2 years when I was last on the move, mid 80s with a young child in tow, I know how stressful things can get.

Hope the sale of your Mum's house goes through ok so you have no worries on that score.

Best of luck

Thanks Liz I will update after I have visited but I think I know that property is too far from shops. I need to be able to reach a shop and back with in 30mins. Mother and Mutts.

Happy hunting Uzzi, exciting times, hope you find a good one.

Thank you Ann

Uzzie, I hope you enjoy looking at all the lovely houses & find one that ideally suits you.
Can I just say I think if it´s going to be your permanent home, you need to be reasonably near civilisation in case there comes a time when neither of you can drive & also considering the now astronomical cost of petrol in Spain compared with what it was a few years ago.
As my friend keeps pointing out to me, you may also in the future need an ambulance & a 30 minute journey is quite long.
OH & I reluctantly left our house near the beach a couple of years ago & I must admit that it´s wonderful to be able to walk to the amenities (while I can still walk :-0 :-0). I tend to forget that I am not going to be as fit & active in 10 years time as I am now..
Really hope you find what you are looking for.

Good luck Uzzi - just remember there is a house out there that has your name written on it.

Hope the sale of your mom's house goes through with no problems

Take care

Love Mary xx

ps Happy Easter

Wisechild you are so right and I have to weigh up ,my love of solitude to not only my need for company but my mothers needs of company.

I have fallen head over heals in love with a house. and even though I know the house will work, the area is so isolated which is not right . Nobody could believe the house it is so perfect, just isolated.

House hunting is driving me mad,
Uzzi xx


UzziWithTears Report 28 Mar 2013 21:59

Mary the perfect house for me may not be for mother so I have to allow her wants aslo


wisechild Report 29 Mar 2013 14:07

S*ds Law Uzzie, that you should find exactly what you want in the wrong place.
Hope you find something exactly right very soon.


AnninGlos Report 29 Mar 2013 14:33

Uzzi you will find somewhere even if it takes a little longer. The important thing is not to grab at something because you have to, take your time.

I looked at lots of houses and fell totally in love with the unsuitable, Out of 7 there is only now 1 in the running, there was 3. and yes I have fallen for the totally unsuitable.

A friend of OH´s said when we saw him on Wednesday if I couldn´t say yes straight away then I hadn´t found the right house and to keep looking. He could be right.

I have a few more lined up ..boy oh boy what a headache :-S
