June passed in a whirlwind of work-related travel, other people's health issues, and the house. Oh, this house. Slowly we complete each task (sometimes with 'help'). One tiny bit at a time, we're getting there.
Many thoughts are going round in our head. Do people like us really get to live in houses like that? Will someone richer outbid us? Will someone else get in there first?
We've offered the asking price and are keeping our fingers crossed.
Of course, our chances would be helped no end if our own house was at least on the market.
I hope there will be a sigh of relief, although I know how long and uncertain the process of house buying and selling can be. Still, I'm looking forward to a few weeks of summer when I'm not wearing my overalls and covered in paint.
