ok, so yesterday we signed the promisary contract so that she cannot sell to anyone else. I also paid a 20.000 deposit to secure the sale.
by 29th , we will have made the escritoria which is when i get the deeds in my name. some other small pieces to sort out but its all over except the shouting.
the garden has a fig tree, a plum tree and a blackberry tree ( yes tree) fresh fruit all summer long.
also, a neighbour is interested in buying some of my land apparently , will meet with them later this month. wont miss a little corner, my garden is huge already, so if i can sell a little bit, i will have enough money to furnish the place top to bottom, and maybe even buy a portuguese car too……
