I realised last night that today marked six months since the waterstone's in Wood Green closed its doors for the last time. Half a year...
It's been a long old time since the catalyst for the Big Green Bookshop, er catalysed. Longer than we'd hoped, that's for sure. But it's only a matter of weeks before there will finally be a bookshop in Wood Green again.
Tim spoke to our solicitor this morning and told him the money was going to hit his account sometime today. The solicitor was 'delighted' and said he'd keep a keen eye on the bank account online( i imagine him sitting in his office, watching the money rolling in on the computer, and laughing maniacally as he rubs his hands together with glee). Apparently we don't need to see him to exchange, as we've already signed everything we need to, so me and Tim are meeting in about 30 minutes time to go through every detail of the plan to get the shop open (insurance, carpets, telephones, books, bags, etc etc).
I hope we haven't forgotten anything.
It's another gloriously sunny day in Wood Green, and i've got some potatoes in the oven, This I hasten to add, is not a euphemism, I really do have some potatoes in the oven.
we're living like kings............
