Today, we finally met the very nice couple who are buying the house next door. I met them with mixed emotions because I had hoped we might buy the bottom half (it is divided into flats at the moment) so I could enlarge Ted Coney's Family Portraits, but it was not to be. I still have a plan B and plan C but that involves pushing the boundaries of the garden so that is for another day and for other buyers. The other interesting point is the new family are hoping to build a room in the loft. So if they can, why can't we?!
