This is one of those 'sorry my blog is going to be quiet for a while' posts as my life is crazy at the moment. My husband and I have been saving for a house deposit for years and started hunting a few weeks ago, thinking it would take months to find something as we are both fussy. Instead, we have found everything we wanted in a house at the price we wanted and have fallen utterly in love (I'm talking mentally unpacking bookshelves here). We're making an offer tomorrow morning, there is a lot of interest in the house so it's stressful and nothing is certain. Even if our offer is accepted, there's always the fear of getting gazumped. I'm thinking tomorrow will be an emotionally draining day as I try to teach and simultaneously negotiate a price for a house. It'll be very disappointing to not get this house.
On top of this, I'm going away on Wednesday for three days with thirty eleven year old children on an outdoor sports holiday in the middle of nowhere. Of course, this will not be a holiday for me but I am looking forward to it as I know how much the children will love it there. There's no internet so I'll be away from the blog from Weds-Fri.
And I'm organising a baby shower for my eight months pregnant sister. Everything that is happening is good, but it's all happening at once!
Oh Fingers cross and I'll pray that you get the house Sam. Hope you have a good holiday with the 11-year-olds and have fun with baby shower! Forget about blogging and enjoy yourself.ReplyDelete
Lots going on, Sam! Fingers crossed re the house and hope you get some sleep (hee hee!) when you're away with the 11 yr olds. Memories of my accompanying pupils on school French trips.... Enjoy, it will be exhausting but great fun.ReplyDelete
Good luck with the house - fingers crossed!ReplyDelete
My goodness, that IS a lot, but at least you're busy with happy things!ReplyDelete
What an exciting week! Best of luck with all your endeavors. We hope to see you back soon!ReplyDelete
I hope the house negotiations turn out well. I'm sure it'll be worth the accompanying stress. Good luck!ReplyDelete
Good luck with the house, hope all goes well! At least taking kids away is a distraction, a big distraction, good luck with that too!ReplyDelete
