Getting back to normality

Getting Back To Normality Whilst we're still very much settling into our new home, this past week has felt like we're getting back to some form of normality. The house is more or less how we want it, the kids are enjoying their new nursery and school, and Gill and I...

It’s slow, but progress all the same

It's slow, but progress all the same We finally got some movement on our first commercial purchase this week, with an offer to sell from the sellers' solicitors. Both Gill and I had resigned ourselves to the possibility it had fallen through so we're delighted it's...
