Yesterday: hours spent in getting to and from a house-viewing in Somerset.
Airport/planes: 8 tedious hours
Inside the house (twice; once to view, later to talk money): 1 hour 15 minutes
With friend Lizzie (having lunch, walking in the woods): 3 lovely hours
Driving hired car: 3 hours 30 minutes
If Easyjet had only updated their website's Flight Status page to reveal that the 7.10 a.m. flight was so delayed because the plane wouldn't even be reaching Newcastle airport to pick us up until 9 a.m. for the one-hour journey to Bristol, I and willing friend-taxi Lynn might not have had to get up at 5....
And the outcome of this very unbalanced day?
I don't know!
The house is owned by an estate agent, and has just gone on the market in the last few days. The vendor, who knew months ago that I was stalking it and planning a very costly trip down to view it, wants to think about whether or not to sell to the first viewer who makes an offer (me!) or to test the market.
She will Let Me Know.
(Blood pressure? What blood pressure?)
