oops

I think it is fair to say that I have, actually, fucked up quite badly.

Luckily one of the nice things about being married to someone who is not a nobber is that that's okay.

Kind of.

Even when you realise just three months after moving house that

  • actually, you were so desperate to get out of the Grime City that is Wallasey
  • that in order to get away from your crazy-like-a-fox next door neighbour
  • and to get settled before hypothetical children are placed with you at the behest of your adoption agency
  • and in a bout of chronic homesick-for-the-countryness

.... you bought the first house that you liked, in a village that you liked, in the countryside.

Instead of making a more thorough plan to actually buy somewhere with a few acres where you could put down some roots, both literally and metaphorically, for the future.

Finding it difficult to admit that I have made a mistake is always a bit of a challenge for me. I suppose that starting big is as good a way to go as any.

Oh dear.

  3. Crikey Ally, I do take my hat off to you for your incandescent forthrightness. It is, in a way, quite scary.

  6. Oh arse.

    Never mind - full marks to B for not being a nobber, and to you for realising what you've, er, realised.

    At least things like houses aren't set in stone. Unless you live in a stone house. Um. What I meant to say, before the last vestiges of my brain departed, was that you might be able to move and remedy the mistake, and if you've done work on your current house in the process, you might even make money. Then you can legitimately tell bare-faced lies about how it was all part of the grand plan. We won't laugh. Well, not much. ;)

    Maybe you needed to make this mid-leap before finding the perfect place for you all. Maybe this IS the perfect place and those other issues will melt away?

    Good luck!
