Good luck with selling the house.

You'll be back before you know it.

Hey ,
i am sure the house will sell faster than you think,interest rates will surely fall by 0.5% and then some, people will start to buy again
Keep us informed on how you get on.

I am really depressed about having to come back to the UK when I really want to be in Nova Scotia shopping for things to put into my house.

However, I would like to thank all of the folk that I met on my trip.

Thanks to UK angel and family for a great chat at Heathrow whilst waiting to board the plane. I hope that your reccie went swimmingly.

Thanks to corky for being so welcoming and friendly on our visit - and for the house selling tips.

Thanks to Val50, amydavid, lisa, clematis girl, esme, poppy2, ayrlass and netrefugee (hope I didn't miss anyone) for coming to the meet up and making it a great social occasion.

Thanks to all of those who have given me advice and help along the way (I will be back for more).

And most of all a huge thanks to poppy2 and her family, without your support and friendship we wouldn't have been able to do nearly as much as we did and wouldn't have had half the fun and laughs.

I really look forward to seeing you all again when I move over for good.

Lynn

PS: If any of you are interested, you can see my house on mls (40863474). I would post piccies but I am feeling jet-lagged.
Oh Lynn, I feel sooo sorry for you being lumbered with THAT house

I am speechless...would you not really like to trade with me and come to SK instead

It must be killing you to be back in UK knowing such a beautiful home is waiting for you over in NS, what a lovely retreat for when you return and i wish you many many happy years there.

You'll have to do something about the paint in that second bedroom. Otherwise, what a fabulous place.

Doesn't actually look quite so bright in real life, not my choice of colours though.
However, my 7 year old loves it as is also has 'glow in the dark' stars and planets on the ceiling.

Lynn hasnt formally agreed to this yet, but I thought it might be a good idea if my family moved in to her NS mansion whilst she sells her house back in the UK, in a custodial sense of course. It would be like the Hillbillies meet Maid in Manhatten....................mostly because I look like Jennifer Lopez, innit. If I could just train little Zebidiah to not pee in the corners of rooms...........

Thats right isnt it Lynn?
