And then, one morning, I click on my Rightmove.co.uk site, and I see this.
“A rare opportunity to acquire this stone built three bedroomed former farmhouse with workshop and two storey barn offering superb development potential . . .
“TO BE SOLD BY PUBLIC AUCTION”
My heart starts to pound so hard I feel blood pulsing in my neck.
Stone built former farmhouse.
Two storey barn.
For sale by public auction.
FOR SALE BY PUBLIC AUCTION!!!!!
Everything I’ve been looking for, that perhaps I can afford!
I don’t give a rip about any “superb development potential.” Or the condition of the cottage.
Whatever’s wrong with it, I can get fixed.
This stone built farmhouse with a barn could be everything I’ve been looking for during the past twelve years!
