Pleased to hear that the operation was a success, I hope everything goes well with then house sale and you can both soon be on your way to your new life in Cyprus. Very best wishes to you both and I will keep checking your moving dairies for further updates
First of all what good news to see Big Al has the all clear.
Don't give up hope about your move. I'm sure it will all come together in the end.
When my Dad died last year we put his house up for sale but without using an agent. We lived in the type of area where word gets around very quickly. One of my neighbours asked in his son could look around my Dad's place immediately. I warned him that we weren't straight at all. We had boxes all over the place - you couldn't see one work surface in the kitchen. He put an offer in there and then which I accepted.
You can't always have things spick and span, and if people really want it they'll "look beyond" and use their imagination.
So good luck, don't give up and we'll see you next year.
How very unfair life can be sometimes......... I'm so sorry about your Dad, Ruth. I lost a precious sister at Christmas time and it is very difficult to have to 'put a face on' for everyone when all you want to do is hide and collapse into your grief.
What a blow about the house!, it's a nightmare being in a chain but at least it sounds as if your estate agent is on the ball. Good luck with the viewings.
Chin up folks and all the best to you both for 2008.
You must be feeling that the whole world is against you at the moment.
Try to keep positive, it will all work out in the end, this is what you want and you will get there.
There is so much rubbish about 'dressing your home for sale' Of course it does help, but I think most folks can see through that and will buy your home regardless of a few boxes of paperwork. Try not to stress yourself about it. You have been through a heck of a lot over the past months. You now deserve some luck, it will come I'm sure.
Best wishes for your future plans

Sounds as thought you had a good time at your party even if it was an emotional time.
Nice pressies from your firends - especially one's from your kids.
Fingers crossed for the house sale - but don't let this couple get you down - you only have to watch the Location Location Location programme to see that there are many like this Mrs - even Kirsty gets frustrated with these people.
That post brought a lump in the throat! sounds like you had a great party, and lovely thoughtfull pressies. It will be the most unexpected person who will buy your house, that's what we were told, and it was right! All the best.
Sorry to hear about your house not being sold but as you sat your on your way anyway.
I have just thought of something - have you contacted your council to tell them that the house will be empty because when my mum was in hospital and her house was empty for 6 months we got a rebate due to the house being empty.
Know its not the same situation as you - but every penny counts might be worth a try
Oh yes we have been in touch with our council. Luckily we had a fair idea that we would be eligable for some sort of discount after having to deal with my late fathers empty house. Once the house is empty we get 6 months free from council tax & (heaven forbid) if we still haven't sold the next 6 months half price.
