Don't know LL the owner is selling and we want to buy but cannot do it quick enough, we have a property to sell in the UK first. So we have until July to fine somewhere else. Would like to stay around the Meadows 'cos it's great for the Jellybabies but we will have to see what we can afford.

Wud love the Lakes but too pricey

Thought the Lakes was cheaper than the Meadows? They're building a whole load of new ones at the mo.

Went for a walk with a pal yesterday round some of the new ones in Emirates Hills - holy shit! Each one was grander & more ostentatious than the last! Mind you, one looked like the public swimming pool in Turriff - not sure how they got away with that one.

Thank you - very nice offer x

But will need somewhere if it is going to be a long delay. Especially as I will working from home initially and you'd soon be fed up of me under your feet all day!!!
