Sometimes it Doesn't Work Out
Just when everything feels like it's going our way, it suddenly doesn't.
Things have been swimming along just nicely this week. New job - check. Broken cars - fixed. Offer placed on the new house - on it.
All right! We are on fire!
Then... a bit of bad news.
The offer made on the house we'd been viewing was declined as someone else has made one as well. Ok, so in a whole world of big bad problems, this isn't the worst thing that could happen to anyone - I realise that. It still doesn't stop it from causing a bit of a slump anyway. We're slightly miffed as it felt we were the only ones interested in a property that no-one else cared about and suddenly, it felt like we were involved in a bidding war. This happens, so - uh huh? We made a higher offer in the end, but the vender went for the cash buyer as they felt that was a more secure choice. Right-oh.
Onwards and upwards - we'll have to go to plan B (at the moment, there isn't really a plan B but maybe winging it will become plan B).
