So much little house :-(

The good news is that after cutting our asking price again...and again...and still again, we accepted a lower than asking price offer on our little house.. SOLD!!!

The bad news is that the house and space we are looking for is so out of our budget it's not funny :-(

The Husband rejects houses without even looking inside them. The reality of what he wants and what we can afford is not sinking into his thought process yet, causing me confusion and annoyance, especially since we have to find a place to live in as soon as our house sale completes.

There is something to be said about us humans and dissatisfaction. No matter how much life gives us we find reasons to be dissatisfied. Instead of shuffling about a bit to be happy in a situation, we stretch outwards beyond what is reasonable and expect to find that elusive perfect situation/house/life.

I'm convinced that I can be happy anywhere if there is peace, love, respect and above all good health. It's a shame that I'm looked on by others as, "a new age odd ball trying to rediscover all things spiritual and nice"-  (not my words but someone else's.)

I am deeply grateful for my life, I am very aware of my shortcomings, and I want to use this precious life to get it right - whatever that "it" is.. Hmmm..maybe they do have a point about me being an odd ball - but that's okay. Right now I just need to find a place to live..

Tara is battling a cold-cough and ear infection but apart from a giant dollop of crankiness she seems to be coping well.

and life goes on....

Life Update

My dear darling daughter,

Its the school summer fair today and you just can't wait to play hook the duck. The simple joys of life through the eyes of a child.

So what has been happening?

1. Well your Papa got his job, so all live together now. We just can't get enough of him turning up home at the end of a day...or turning up at your tennis lesson...or just being around..

2. Your teeth are causing you pain. we finally have lost and replaced the two lower front ones. The top two are wobbling but very gently. The ones emerging at the back are very painful, causing tears at breakfast the last few days. I had to bring out Calpol.

3. Your days are good, but nights are tricky. There's been unexplained tears and night sweats...and the occasional bedwetting and nightmares. Is it the teeth? Or is there something else on your little mind?

4. Our house is up for sale...but no one is looking or seeming interested :-( Patience is the key with any property sale but your Papa is impatient and wants more space right now!

5. We are ALL off on a holiday in July...and then again in October!! Hurray...everything is booked, but not paid for yet. Not to worry we'll get what if the credit card looks ready to blow up..We all deserve our excesses this year.

6. You my dear child are growing up so fast...6 years old in August. I won't say time has flown...or crawled. I'm satisfied with the pace.

I love you Pickles...Mummy is still fighting off the blues and taking it as it comes...
