The house - well - it's been good, it's been bad, it's hanging by a thread, it's been more money and it's been stressfully undecided. Truly. The good news is we have sold our house, and chosen a nice house at the other end, and everyone in the chain has the requisite buyer and/or seller. The bad part is that one person has more exacting criteria than might be expected (?Do you like my polite understatement there?) and it's been on and off with them, and a further injection of hard cash to get them to continue. It's not my buyer or my house, but it effects everyone in the chain, and the collapse of one link spells the end of the current round, so we're keen to keep everything going.
Now, other people's house buying woes probably aren't much fun to read about or even very interesting, but I thought you'd all like to know where I'm at. The biggest irony was I had decided I didn't enjoy living with two rooms full of boxes anymore, and with much hard work from both of us we had unpacked everything and made the house and the garden lovely again!
We have been doing some nice things as well though - so please enjoy trains, fungi and a long-in-the-planning stitching project which will eventually be a complete embroidered box.
|The desk, day one.|
I did manage some simple dressmaking, and some repairs, and we even did some DIY - not our strongest point. But basically we're waiting - could be very soon, could be months, and neither of us is really the patient type LOL
Enjoy the autumn days - or the spring days to my friends 'round the other side' and watch this space...
Blessings to you and yours
