Last Friday there was a knock at the door and a woman was standing there. I had never seen her before, and she introduced herself as the woman that used to own the house....okay........
She went on to say that due to the fact that they moved in winter they had left some things in the garden and would it be possible to take them now?
At this point I should explain my brain is still processing the fact that this is the woman who owned the house, as over here when buying a house you have little to no contact with the owners of the house you are buying from as that is what you pay your real estate agent for. So what I am trying to say is my brain is not moving as fast as this conversation was. So my face must have registered surprise/confusion/annoyance/goodness knows what else.
So she says that this is a bit awkward, but she wants to take this green glass rock. So I say won't it still be frozen into the ground?
She then goes on to say her grandma had given it and then went on to say about the bad weather when they moved.
I said fine take whatever you want and closed the door. I saw her walking down the driveway with the big glass rock but that was all.
Now the whole bad weather thing is a crock of lies. As I mentioned in my first moving house post, it didn't start snowing until 4pm on the day we moved. Prior to that the weather was fine and they were moved out of the house well before that.
I just can't believe you would walk up to the house you used to own and ask for stuff you left over 4 months ago? I had no problem with her taking that and anything else, I just think it was a bit cheeky.
What do you think? Again I was more surprised about the whole thing as it came out of no where.
