House viewings

So the house finally went on the market and the Internet, as usual the timing was great, just before we went to centre Parcs for the weekend! The phone was ringing all weekend with people booking appointments. We ended up with 9 appointments over 3 days. It sounds really good but only 5 turned up, gggggrrrrrrrrrr!
Most of them don't tell you their not coming either and so you're sitting waiting for an hour. We didn't want to start anything either in case they came halfway through. We played a lot of phone games those 3 days!
All the people that turned up said they liked the house but so far no offers. We know we're down to 4 potential buyers as one couple have had an offer accepted on a different house.
We have another viewing this weekend so hopefully that'll go well, or at least we'll get some feedback on what's wrong with our house. I know i won't get the asking price and we're willing to throw in extras for sensible offers below the asking price.  I just want it sold!!!

Day of fun

I'm not mentioning house selling on this post because it's all annoying!
Anyway because of the above we decided to have a day out to the Yorkshire wildlife park in Doncaster. We've been before just after they rescued the lions from awful conditions in another zoo. If you don't know about this story then look it up it's a heart warming tale. When we went it was quite small but now they have expanded (and still are) and it's a fab day out.
When we entered we were told a camel had been born that day and was out in the paddock, I love animals so that was exciting!
Park map in hand we planned our route heading to the monkeys. They have 2 monkey enclosures that you can go in with the monkeys and the monkeys play around you. I won't go into loads of detail on all the animals you can see here, but as well as the lemurs, spider monkeys and lions, you can also see tigers,  leopards, giraffes, meerkats and lots more.
After the wildlife park we went to find some food, I'd already checked out a few places on trip advisor (girls best friend! ). On our way we saw a David Wilson development and decided to pop in to see if they had any show homes like the houses they'll be building near the in laws.
They did! So we've looked around it and depending on price and build time we may have found our house! We headed off for our lunch/ tea I'd share the name of the pub but we weren't massively impressed with it. It wasn't awful but I wouldn't go back either. It could have been a bad day because it's reviews were good.
Overall it was a glorious day, just what we needed! Hopefully this week I'll update you on the house going online, the family trip to centre parks and a day at the deep.
