Sewing fit to bust!! (127)

Well, there's one bit of good news on the horizon, amongst all the gloom - petrol is coming down in price. Yay! Some of the supermarkets have dropped their price to just under £1 a litre (that's about 1.7 US dollars, 2.56 Australian dollars).

The home move saga just doesn't want to seem to stop. Having taken our house off the market we got a reasonable offer for it. We declined, so he upped his offer. We declined so he upped his offer again, and this time we couldn't see a good reason to decline it. Few people would be improving their offers at a time when house prices are still dropping. So we accepted. Then he said that he wanted us to move out by Christmas, for goodness' sake. We said we couldn't agree to that. Now we're waiting to hear from him again. So, we might be moving, or we might not. Who knows!
Today I've been sewing fit to bust. Having finished the Christmas table runner for our Peruvian friends, I decided to make a small wall hanging for their daughter. I made a very similar design to one I made a couple of months ago, as it seemed appropriate. Thankfully, it made up quickly and I was able to finish it in one day.

Now, what will I do tomorrow?

Good luck with your prospective buyer! Buying and selling houses is so very stressful. Take care

And now the house sells...are you happy, sad or bewildered? Where will you move to...do you have a town, house, hut, cave, tent, or relatives that you can move to?

I am happy - if you all are happy!

You are in a win win sitution ahaving decided to stay. If he really wants the house he will wait. If he doesn't wait then you'll have lost nothing.
Either that or look into the possibility of renting for a month or so.

Love and hugs Gina xxx

I know it's all very sudden, and probably very stressful, especially with the holidays coming up, but I hope that if it is what you want that everything works out and that you don't have to be in too much of a rush. It doesn't rain it pours it seems, hopefully this part will turn out to be a good thing.

Good luck with the house sale. If it's meant to be it will work our for you. You are really getting things done ahead of time. Where are you moving to or do you know yet? I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.
