And so it begins...Fox Hollow has a new owner!
Oh Hi! I'm Flossie and today I've just had news that the new owner of Fox Hollow is arriving from overseas at the end of the month! It's all very exciting.
Fox Hollow belonged to my mother and I inherited it when she passed away but to be honest I haven't really been able to look after it properly, not on my salary. It's been in the family for years but it was turning into a bit of a money pit because of all of the constant repairs and upkeep, and the wages I earn over at the crab-shack barely even cover the bills so I made the decision to sell. I was sad at the thought of it going but it's been sitting empty for a few years now so it was the only way to go. I had a few people come to view but no offers came in......
Then, a few weeks ago I got a phone call from someone called Minnie who said she'd been here visiting a relative and loved the area. She'd had word that Fox Hollow had a For Sale sign on the porch and she knew she just had to have it. She bought it sight unseen and was very excited at the prospect of moving into the area. She's just finalising things where she is now and can't wait to start afresh here at Fox Hollow.
Minnie says that she isn't that fussy about the condition of the house as she had plans to put 'her own stamp' on but I still want this beautiful house to make an impression so I'm trying to rustle up a bit of help to get it spruced up before she arrives.
I've spoken to Minnie and she's sent some fabric samples and colour cards and she's happy for me to make a start on things for her.
It's all very exciting!
So, it's all hands on deck to try and make a bit of headway before Minnie gets here. I'm really looking forward to meeting her and helping her settle in!
Better get inside and see what needs doing!
