It seems we will not be moving tomorrow after all, not until at least the middle of September. The vendors’ Estate Agent, whose job it is to liase, was informed of this delay slightly over two weeks ago but sadly we were not.
All the annual seedlings I have brought on to see me through the end of the summer will no longer tolerate being held back in their pots so will be offered to friends and family. I must now focus on ordering bulbs, bare root roses and any extra hardy annual seeds I need for an early start next year.
My plan is to sow some in the polytunnel we dont have yet, as soon as possible, so I thought I would fill out the planning application now. Our circumstances are not covered in the FAQs online and the smallest error will result in the application being rejected. The bureaucrats in the Council planning dept will not answer any questions unless I give them £50 and even then will not guarantee the veracity of their answers. More annoying stereotypes :(
