That only took 3.5 months and a threat of pulling out and suing for the rent we had to pay after the sellers breached contract.

I have created a LOL in celebration.

Hurrah!
I have the feeling the sellers' solicitors are probably as happy to see the last of them as we are.

Dude! I have a studio. A studio! Wow.

You'll have to pay us a visit. We have a spare room. I'm sure you can swing a guest lecture at the university.

Heh, thank you! It was supposed to go through tomorrow but I was already so jaded that I'd talked myself out of thinking it was actually going to happen. I'm still getting used to the idea that it has.

Yes yes! I think making it clean will be the first order of business - although I doubt we'll bother with steaming carpets or anything like that as we are going to have to have some fairly major construction work done on the place right away.

We have a spare room! You can stay with us! I can't believe I can say that! Yay!

If you ever want to holiday-swap for a rambler in St. Cloud MN, you know who to call.

(just kidding)

Congratulations on your happy news!

Yaaay! Thank you. You know, I've only ever driven through MN once, and that was during the most amazing hailstorm. This huge black cloud rolled up out of nowhere, dumped ice on us for 20 minutes and rolled off again. It'd be worth a repeat visit just to see if it happens again.
