House Hunting [May. 18th, 2006|10:40 am]
Tony Grist
So we're not going to be able to buy my sister's house. 

Money, you know. A discrepancy between what we'll get for this place and what she wants for that place of about £100,000.

*Clears throat*.

But are we downhearted? Not really. There are houses and apartments in that corner of Kent we can easily afford. Faversham isn't expensive. It's too far from London to make it first choice for commuters.

Ailz is enjoying herself hugely. Every few minutes she'll call me across the room to look at some greatly desireable mobile home or converted scout hut.

And we're casting our net wide.

"Sheerness is very cheap," she says.

I look at it  on the map. It occupies a little rhinoceros horn of land sticking out into the Medway estuary. Marshes all round. 

I love marshes.

Travel east and the first town you come to is Rotterdam..

That's an odd looking thing. But kinda cool. What is it?

I visited Sheerness a few years ago. Very, very, very weird atmosphere. Odd place.

On the way back we visited Pip's graves.

"Very, very weird atmosphere" sounds right up my street....

Pip's graves are at Cooling, right?

I think so - it was a long time ago. They didn't help with the general weirdness of the day.

I'm so glad you are still going! What fun, to search for just the right place.

P.S. I vote for the "converted scout hut." How intriguing!

It said it was a "chapel", but it looked like a scout hut to me....

A converted chapel is also intriguing. I'd take it in a second if it had trees...does it have a mossy cemetery, too? Oh, joy!

I'm afraid there's no cemetery.

And I doubt if there are trees.

It's actually a very dull-;ooking building.

You will be careful about how far above sea level these places are, won't you?
