Hi Chrisw,I would leave the cooker behind,looking at renting ,they generally come fully furnished,you may love the thing but a new one that fits in the new surroundings may be better,thats my view anyway

Thanks Jeane, nice to hear from you, that is something I had wondered, whether it would fit in our new kitchen (wherever that may be! ) We have accepted an offer on our house this morning (full asking price to boot!) and have advised purchasers we will leave all the white goods including the cooker.

Yes it's certainly good news about Chris's sale - I am thrilled for her

Tell OH that it takes ages to sell a house in England so he had better get the house on the market sharpish. Hope he recovers well from the op and takes things easy.

Hey Jean - you are coming on in leaps and bounds with the lappy, well done

I'll second Lionda's comments Jean. Get the house on the market well before summer, tell viewers that jobs yet to be done but hubby recovering from op so has delayed work. You might:
A Get an earlier sale than expected
B Get the sympathy vote and get an earlier sale than expected
C Get the sympathy vote, therefore hubby might not have to do the jobs he planned to, and still leading to an earlier sale than expected!
What have you got to lose? You want to make the most of the good weather when there are more people out and about. Who can say what it will be like in the summer! Don't forget the candles are burning so don't waste "the power"!
