For what seems like forever, we've been trying to move house (within the Borough boundary, of course). Finally, a sale and purchase were agreed, with the moving date set for this Thursday.
Then - catastrophe on Monday as we had to pull out of the house we were purchasing in Dinsdale, potentially leaving us homeless by the end of the week, with the sale of our property all agreed.
Fortunately, thanks to the staff at Countrywide Lettings, who proved extremely accommodating (boom, boom) we'll have a roof over our heads on Thursday. Our address will be;
1 The Beeches,
Middleton St. George,
Darlington DL2 1GD.
My home number will be 01325 335365 (as of Thursday pm). My mobile number will continue as at present.
Councillor duties in the ward and wider will of course continue as normal. In the absence of broadband at the house, however, blogging will become rather less frequent, although do keep coming back, as I'll try and blog from the Town Hall.
This wasn't what we wanted immediately before Christmas, but as I pointed out to James, there are many families who are genuinely homeless at this time of year, and we can be thankful for the position we're in. Hopefully, the tree will be up by Sunday!
