Stress Update

I guess I should mention that we've sold the house. Argh.

We also girded our loins for the depressing tour of estate agents in our chosen location. Estate Agent: [n] One who fails to return calls, looks at you incredulously when you say you want to buy a house, sends you inappropriate details, and phones everyone else to tell them about the house you wanted.

And they were lovely. I guess it's the power of actually having the money to spend now.

We saw a place we fell in love with - 2 RJ45 points in every room, patching in the cellar, enormous garden, fab kitchen - and were then told by the bank that we couldn't afford it.


But they have agreed to lend us over the standard amount, and now we have a decent footing for making real offers on real houses. Up to a slightly-smaller-than-we-hoped number. But at least we know.

The effect of this: I'm knackered because I don't have to be sensible, grown up and mature any more. Just really shattered. So I'm even more confused about why I woke up at 5am...
