We are buying a house at the moment. Everyone tells you how stressful it is (quoting statistics that it is the 1st or 2nd or 3rd most stressful thing after a bad haircut ot divorce or something), but I’ve been been doing ok so far.
It’s starting to wear a bit thin, though. So many twists and turns, all of them so important and yet also SO DULL! You try and tell friends the latest installment and watch their eyes glaze over, despite their well meaning questions.
I’ve only ever owned one home, but buying one whilst selling one seems to more than quadruple the issues and worry. And it’s taking so long!
As you know, I run my own business from home, which adds to the pressure because I’m in limbo. At some point (This week? Next week?).
I will have to pack up my studio, I can’t really develop, photograph and launch new designs when I have to pack up at any moment. At some point I will need to briefly close, but not quite yet. I will keep you posted!
In the meantime, here’s some of my photos from the week. That dog is keeping me sane as usual.
Please let me know if you have any sanity saving tips from your house-buying and moving experiences!
