In A Slump / Over The Hump

Thursday, 25 October 2018


We got turned down for the mortgage amount we needed for our dream house this week, despite both being absolutely baller and having plenty of money both in the bank and coming in to justify what we wanted to borrow. The reason? We're self employed. Ay carumba mama mia the world does like to punish those that try to make their own way through non-traditional means

As the move was going to take us back to be close to my family and my best friend, this news has put me on a bit of a downer. So I've stayed away from the internet and most other forms of communication in order to avoid coming across as a bitter old hag. Which is exactly what I have become over the past few days, I will be completely honest

But a turning point hath cometh and, last night, whilst making a nice meal together and listening to a YouTube playlist called 'music for cooking,' D and I agreed that it's not the end of the world, that we'll make the best of having to stay in the north west for longer than is desirable, and that we would just both continue working hard until the day the bank acknowledges our efforts and MAKES IT RAIN

So, despite my slump, I am 99% now over the hump, but wanted to share this anyway, because life sucks sometimes and marriage isn't a perfect thing and neither is any other aspect of life. Also to dump a couple of photos that don't do the home we wanted to grow old in justice, because there were puppies, and I got distracted photographing them rather than the property. (That picture of the dog was meant to showcase the enormous garden, for example...)

Back with an overview of the last week soon. Hope your mood has been much better than mine ;)
