This afternoon I saw two men in our garden. For a moment I was afraid it was the realtor putting up a “A vendre” sign. But no, they were just measuring the whole lot to make a so-called “Certificat de localisation”. It’s a document that exactly describes the property. And when i write exactly I mean exactly. I overheard them saying “4 cm” for the width of the garden fence…

Half an hour later the bank called. Our mortgage is approved! Thanks for everybody that crossed their fingers/thumbs/whatever. It apparently helped.

So we’re one step closer to buying the house. Probably the actual sale will happen when we come back from our trip to the Netherlands, early June.
