For some they say Friday the 13th is an unlucky day, but for us it was the best one we've had for at least 6 months.
Friday I FINALLY took the call to confirm we had exchanged contracts on the house, our living nightmare is over and everything will be done and dusted by Friday the 20th. It is like such a weight has been lifted I cannot begin to describe the sense of relief that we feel, we can finally move on to the next stage of the happily ever after and build the farmhouse of our dreams.
As if that wasn't enough good news, our Spanish neighbours have gifted us the use of the old corral opposite the house we are renting at the moment, the space is approximately 12.5m x 12m and securely fenced and gated, they have said we can grow what we like and keep a few chickens in there. This is amazing for us as it means that we won't miss out on this year's growing season whilst we build the house and can get a head start on some of the plants we want on the land by using the corral as a mini nursery. I'm also planning to use it as somewhat of a playground to try out new methods and techniques and find what works best for plants and the soil out here.
So all in all I think Friday the 13th is our lucky day, I hope everyone is having an amazing weekend!
