"A real fixer-upper"

In Estate Agent Speak "A real fixer-upper" means "Tear down and start again"

Another Estate Agent came today - again - very nice - how are you supposed to decide which to use?  The first one that came was so nice I would have signed them up there and then.  Then today's was so professional and nice, I would have signed up there and then too.  But still we have two more to see - how can they get better?

We have a Realtor in Canada sending us daily emails regarding properties that fit our search criteria.  Some of them are very very strange and a couple we are very interested in, but we can't possibly buy a house whilst we are in the UK.

Huffle now has his Offer Letter and they would like him to start the job on the 1st November - Now that is scary.  How can we get ourselves together in that time?  If he goes without us I would hate it.  I realise it may have to happen.  Now I am panicking that if we are there before Chistmas, we won't have any of our furniture as it takes months for the containers to arrive.

It is exciting though.  Note to self - keep telling yourself how exciting it all is!!

I saw that you were a follower on one of my blogs and being nosy I thought I'd sign on here too:) How exciting to be moving to Canada but also very scary given the time frame. Not to worry though as people do it everyday and manage somehow. Think of all the blogging material of all your ups and downs. Think positive thoughts:)
