Estate agents, solicitors and the post office

I wont bore you all with the details, but as I’m sure many of you know, buying/selling a house is a nightmare.

Do you ever find that all the rage dissipates when someone does something selfless and lovely for you? I was just about to launch into atirade against the above when we got a phone call from the girlfriend of the son of the people who are letting us stay with them at the moment. We have only met her once before, yet she is prepared to drive to her office to pick up her certifying stamp, drive over to us tonight and certify our ID documents so that we can send them to our solicitor who can then proceed with the sale of our flat.

We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of the people here who are letting us stay with them, doing us massive favours, listening to us rant when its all too much and welcoming us into our new church and jobs. Thank you to you all.

The other thing I was going to say is that I’m lonely 🙁
I feel a bit isolated and am so terribly bored every evening. I end up going to bed ridiculously early because I cant think of anything else to do. And while lots of sleeping is good for a while, sometimes it gets a bit tedious to be in every night without fun things to do.

But, just so I don’t end on a negative note, I started piano lessons this evening which I am SO SO excited about. I need to track down a piano to practice on for now and then to buy once we have our house.

  1. Oh hugs, I remember that "I’m lonely and I miss my friends and my old house and my street and (horrors) even my old job" feeling. But I’m so glad you’re meeting good and welcoming people.

    How exciting about the piano lessons. I want to have bagpipe lessons, but I think I’ll wait until we have a house and so fewer neighbours attached to us!

  2. Ah. I have a new piano – but no time to practice – except when I wake up in the middle of the night unable to sleep. Some sort of exchange is required. 😉

  3. Sorry to hear the house sale is dragging – great you’ve got people being so kind. We’re hoping to buy an upright piano later in the year, so will have our electronic one looking for a home then. Take care and love to you both,..
