I’m still standing

It’s action stations around here this week. Inspections at the drop of the hat, bank valuers coming in so people who are {hopefully} going to bid on Saturday have all their ducks lined up. There are calls to and fro between the agent, the solicitor, talk of bringing settlements early, or not, offers before auction, people talking to brokers then back to the agent. Eeek. It’s stressful and exciting and overwhelming and did I mention stressful?

And now I see that Saturday is forecast RAIN. Not showers. Or drizzle. Or storms. But rain. I think that is the worst kind of weather for an on site auction. Bugger.

So, until then I plan on keeping the house clean. Keeping my mind open. Keeping my stress levels down and my excitement levels high….because before too long this will all be over and we will be heading to our new house in the country.
And I can’t wait.


  1. Good luck with everything Beth! And by everything, I mean keeping the house clean and keeping your sanity. xxx

  2. It sounds like you are going through some really crazy times. House buying and selling is stressful for everyone involved!

    Keep your head up and don’t be afraid to use chocolate as a first and last resort 🙂

  3. The end is in sight!

    Good luck on Saturday, I hope someone buys at auction.

    Hang in there 🙂


  4. As hellish as this sounds, it also sounds like you’ve got a lot of interest. Good luck xx
