It’s all too much

I’ve said it before and I’m sure that I’ll say it again – this house buying thing is sooo stressful.  We finally made a small amount of progress and the topic of not only exchange, but completion reached the cards.  However, it was not as exciting as it sounds because the vendors told us on Monday that they would like to exchange on Thursday!!  Well, since I am not announcing that we have a house you can probably guess this didn’t happen.  We went back to them with another plan and then went through the process of sorting out money.

Then, on Wednesday, we asked for confirmation our deposit had been received by the solicitor as we telegraphically transferred it to them on Tuesday.  They replied, via email, and said they hadn’t!!  I almost had a small break-down right at my desk.  I rang Sam and he was as shocked as me and dashed all the way home to get the confirmation slip and go to the bank.  Then, as he was just about the ring the bank, the solicitor rang to say their bank had found the money after all.  For crying out loud…
