And now we start again…

After having a few issues regarding pricing etc with the house in Nunhead, on Monday the vendor withdrew the property from the market “for personal reasons”. So having paid for a valuation, we’re a few hundred quid down and no further on.

We suspected this might be coming, so had spent Saturday and Sunday looking around houses in South London. We’ve found a couple that we liked the look of and are seeing a couple more tomorrow so we’ll see how we go.

We both enjoyed the Bestival on the Isle of Wight the weekend before last. The facilities were a bit lacking, not enough toilets, not enough running water, too few food outlets and too slow bar service (I waited an hour to get served on Sunday afternoon).

The weather was great though, we even got slightly sunburnt, and we really enjoyed some of the acts, notably The Fall, Petshop Boys, Scissor Sisters, The Long Blondes and rounded it all off with Carl Cox’s cracking Old School set on the Sunday night.

We had a day at Freshwater after the festival to wind down and catch up on sleep, and enjoyed the break.
