Jetzt geht's um die Wurst!
Here we go! It's now or never!
(Though the title of this post literally translates as 'Now we go around the sausage!').
The money is in the Notar's account ready for the 28th, and the seller has agreed to arrange for the house to be handed over the following Monday!
We think that only one of us needs to go to Berlin for the key-handover and final utility meter readings, so my Beloved has volunteered to be the one, and will be flying out from East Midlands on Sunday 3rd. Then she will fly back Monday evening, and the house will finally be ours! Our search will be over! Or as the German's say 'Alles hat ein Ende, nur die Wurst hat zwei'. ('Everything has an end, only a sausage has two'. What is it with Germans and sausages?!)
Or rather, our search is over, but our new life has just begun!
