I went up to Durham on Saturday to help The Professor settle in to the rental house we have got him while we wait for the sale in Edinburgh to go through and while we look for something new to buy. I really enjoy these train rides. A bit of luxery to have 3.5 hrs to myself, just sitting reading or crocheting!
|This is apparently the oldest University building in the world still in use, from 1027. Nope, it is neither the house we are renting nor the house we went to view... :-)|
Glorious weather and lovely with some alone time with The Professor
The house is fine and within walking distance to town and office. But it is a rental, so it takes a little effort to make it more 'home'.
On Sunday we went to view a house for sale. It was a big disappointment, to be honest. It is really annoying to see how the estate agents use wide angle lenses to make rooms look bigger...
Makes me really annoyed, actually!
But we should be patient.
This was the first house we viewed so I guess we should listen to the quote saying
patience is bitter, but it's fruit is sweet...
