Well most people will know the saga of "our new house" but I thought as we finally had the keys you guys could share the amusement with us, with none of the tears!!!
Well we bought this little flat 4 years ago, off plan. We now know that when they say "off plan" what they really mean is "we may at some point in the very distant future produce something that roughly sounds like it may be what you bought" it does not mean that they are in any way obliged to keep their promises on minor things like.... painting, flooring, shower, quality of finishing, parking, well you know anything really!!
So finally they thought "b*gger this, lets get the mugs to pay for it" and demanded the cash, in seven days if you please!!!
All paid for and we thought we'd collect the keys... from the fruit and veg shop in the village and off we went to peruse the glory and joy that was "our new house." First problem, NO NUMBERS ON DOORS, I kid you not!!! What flat was ours? Up the stairs we went, down the stairs we went, and finally we found the door the key fitted!
In the flat, well they have painted (walls, window frames, windows....) and they did put the skirting on (we are not worthy!!) so would you like a guided tour?
First off the living room. Huge isn't it? A real party palace!!
And look there are the french doors leading onto the balcony. Oh yes the new house has a balcony with views over the river tweed. Well it did!!!!!!!! The advertising made a lot of the balcony and when we went to see the house a month ago it had a balcony. So if anyone has seen a missing f'n balcony I WANT IT BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The bedroom, its not so large... really its not so large. Or even square. But look Mark can lie down in it, both ways no less. Hell bedside tables are way over rated!
The bathroom is Unique. its an L shape, now if you imagine the long bit of the L shape well there is nothing in that bit. In the short bit of the L shape is the sink, the loo and the bath, all at jaunty angles to each other!
But the kitchen, the kitchen is great!!!!!!
