I'll look at both competions in a bit. Have done the GW one already.
The final piece of 'roller coaster' has been sorted. Daughter is in the proccess of buying her first house, but wouldnt tell me, as scared to!! OH knew & was decidedly unhappy with the situation & so told me- hence me feeling even worse about her not telling me. Didnt care not the first- Dads & daughters & all that. OH told daughter that I knew & still nothing said. Thought she'd come clean whist at GC this morning, no. Does she know how difficult it's been for me not to say anything?!!
Then we get home, she opens her PC & says 'do you want to look at the house?'!!
Lucky so n so will get a long, south facing garden, plus a good size front too. Has already assumed that Mum will 'do' it for her but didnt like the request for petrol £ & expenses!! She has actually done well. Good location, not the best in that area, but the next door so to speak. Work to be done so can add value etc- all those sessions of Location, Location paid off!
So that's another weight off mind. She needs her own space, especially with all her stuff. That means ours will appear emptier -yay- & so easier for us to get ready to sell! In the meantime we need to decide on where to- using the 'little house' as a base for exploring around there & w/ends in Manchester to explore another area I'd always loved & far enough away from daughter's not to be crowding her!
Becks well done for perservering with GPs. That was the correct route. A&E only for emergencies, which as Jess, though still unwell, wasnt. Good luck. J.
