Is there no end to this?

Our mortgage agreed....bang

Youngest and her caveman though want to bid on a house coming up for auction on Wednesday

A house that you can't get a mortgage on

Enter much legal jostling and cavemans Mother and her partner potentially remortgaging

Enter also a very tight timescale

So far we are waiting for the formal remortgage offer for cavemans Mother

If that doesn't happen then no bidding

Contracts will need to be signed after the auction and whilst that's not such a worry if our purchase hasn't gone through fully it is still a risk

Two more sleeps....though how much sleep I'm not sure!

At the weekend hubby and I escaped all the worry and ventured to Bishops Lydeard to the National Ploughing Championships

We saw...

Dutch Draught horses


Steam engines and lots more besides

It was good to get away for the day

Yesterday was our village harvest lunch which went well but left me exhausted as all my preparation had to be done yesterday morning as I was away all Saturday

And today being Monday means work...though from home there is a lot for me to do so I'd best make a start

  1. I have everything crossed for you Jackie. Hopefully your work can distract you from your fretting for a while and I hope the next time you post it will be with good news. X

    1. Thank you Jules...hopefully our financial advisor knows what he's doing! x

  2. Like Jules I have everything crossed for you me darlin'.
    Wishing very hard for everything to come together for you all.
    Love and Hugs-x-

    1. Thank you Sheila...we made it through the auction, though with hubby bidding I couldn't bear to watch! Hopefully we're on the home straight! x

  3. Hang in there. Things have a habit of turning around. I love heavy horses, remarkable animals.

    1. I'm gripping tightly! We're as certain as you can be of the remortgage being successful but you never know. x

  4. House buying is incredibly stressful, I never want to do it again! Keeping fingers crossed for you.x

    1. Thank you Yarrow...I've just been reading through your French adventures...really must add you to my follow list as as keep losing you! x

  5. A busy time. I used to work with shire horses, fabulous animals.

    1. Yes indeed...if I had to own a horse it would have to be a contest! x
