Hobbiton - New Zealand 2012
Apparently buying a house in the UK is considered more stressful than having a child or starting a new job, and this week I can confirm this is absolutely true. I spent the last few days trying to get some reasonably priced building insurance (which I need to finally be able to complete the purchase) but it has not been easy. I ended up having to pay a structural engineer to come and make sure every brick in the new home is solid and stable, so that those lovely people at the insurance company have no excuses for charging me a fortune for the luxury of securing my very own hobbity cottage. I must admit, I have been feeling quite disheartened , this whole thing is dragging on and on - I just phoned the engineer to ask him if he could give me an indication of the result of the survey...and of course, he has taken a day off today *sigh* Oh well, I guess it will be next week before I get any kind of feedback ...glad the weekend is here. Yes it is stressful to buy a house, even if it is just small hobbit cottage. Probably because it is such a big decision I made...I Just keep telling yourself to breath and stay calm, all will be fine in the end.
Spring in the Shire
In other news this week, I decided that it was time to do something different with my hair, so I went to see my stylist Kevin and the result is that I came out from there with a huge smile on my face and a brand new look , so thank you Kevin for brighten up a bit my week. Oh, and I also applied for a couple of new jobs, just in case. Although it has been a stressful week for many reasons, I am still very positive and hopeful everything will be just right. Spring is coming, the air is warmer and the first snowdrops are blooming in the garden - next week will be lovely...hopefully, and in the meantime I wore my new dress today and went for a drink , like all respectable hobbits should on a Friday. Have a lovely hobbity weekend!
