Change of address
I am likely to be very quiet for the next few days. It will be only an apparent calm, not actual, because today we start moving out of the house we are in and the removal will finish on Friday. Transfer into a new house will happen sometime soon, all being well, but not for a few weeks.
The pattern of house selling and buying in the UK has changed. No more than two years ago, people would buy and sell more or less at the same time, even sometimes agreeing to buy before having sold when the market was especially buoyant. Most now seem to wait until their house is sold before looking for somewhere to go and as a result, we can't move into the house we'd like until the owners have found somewhere to go. A hiatus awaits until the chain starts moving.
In the meantime, I'd like to wish all my American readers a very happy Thanksgiving. Some of you I know better than others, but I am grateful to number you among my many blogging friends.
