Thank you for your lovely comments on my last post! My mind over the past couple of weeks has been consumed mostly with house business, which I did not want to talk about since there was nothing really to tell, but also did not want to speak negatively of in case I jinxed myself!
Either way, whatever my superstitions were, it appears they did not pay off. Unfortunately the vendors have been rather stubborn in what they are asking for the property, and given the current market conditions and property prices in general, I am unwilling to budge and give those extra dollars they are holding out for. The real estate agent is hopeful given a bit more time that we can all come to an agreement, but I think I am all negotiated out when it comes to this!
No matter. We've seen another lovely place over the weekend, and whilst it doesn't have the wow or pizazz that the other property pulled me in with, it does come with more space and much more of a homely feel to it. We're going to try to arrange a second inspection this week, and then the deliberations will begin on whether to put in an offer.
Anyway, in my brief absence...
I've cooked some tasty food.
I've ordered some unhealthy food.
I've procured some lovely new boots.
And I've spent hours poring over copious amounts of paperwork!
I hope you've all been keeping safe. Time to catch up with all of your blogs now!
