A game of two halves.... Not just a cliche often heard in football commentary, it seems apt for my nerve-shredding house situation too.
The sale of my house seems to be moving along nicely; the survey findings were accepted in full, no quibbling, and the buyer's solicitor has been instructed to proceed. I feel less anxious now about the selling bit.
Buying is another matter. The vendors have found only one property that they like (odd, isn't it, how we all call houses, even our beloved family homes, a 'property' nowadays?), and that's the one with the water supply problems - and the little matter of their offer being refused.
They don't want to move and rent, and neither do I.
I worry that they may change their minds, and decide to wait till their perfect property comes along. Worry is my default position.
Maybe it's just half time, and we need to retire to the sidelines and eat quartered oranges.....
