High hopes

I had a little wobbly last week about where on earth were we going to live. We have to be out our house by the 28th July. Eeek! Where do you start with the packing? It is amazing how much rubbish one family can collect in seven years! Every cupboard, drawer, and loft space is filled to the brim with stuff! Time to have a massive clear out! Anybody want a vintage Silver Cross pram that was mine when I was little? It is now around thirty two years old !

Anyway, were are we going? Well the answer is I still don't know! We will have to rent until we find somewhere, but we have a little project going on in the background very slowly, you know the pace that some lawyers take is slower than a snail! We have been looking at a steading which needs to be converted into a home for a while and negotiations have been going back and forth for what seems like months now.

I have been told not to get my hopes up as we may still have to walk away but how can you not? I have moved in in my head already! I have picked my AGA!, I have chosen the wall colours and have placed the furniture! I have high hopes! How can you not with a view like this?!!


  1. The trials and tribulations of moving eh? Boy have I had a few of them... from moving to the south from the north and then over to the States. Our house sale fell through, we had given up our rented place, I had a 1 year old and just found out we were expecting our 2nd. It all worked out though... sit tight and you will get the place of your dreams... don't do what we did, run around like headless chickens and settle on the first available place! Take care. Lx

  2. It's all good fun really when you look back at this time in a few years! hope everything works out for you, been there ourselves having sold our house but not having anywhere to move to! it did work out and so will yours :)

    Bee happy x
    Have a delicious day!

  3. I always think that things happen for a reason so if it doesnt happen, then it wasnt meant to be! Although that doesnt help with the disappointment I know!
    I have had such bad experiences with moving house that this time I have said - never again, unless we are forced out for some reason!!
    Good luck!

  4. I can see what you mean; that view is stunning!! Thanks for stopping by my blog; I am a new follower. Are you in Scotland? I adore Scotland. I used to go there for business. I taught some classes on Loch Lomond... well in a room overlooking Loch Lomond.

  5. Well, the second photograph is seems very beautiful and really like the line of pink. It is beautiful colour of nature.
