On Thursday, with two weeks to go, our buyer pulled out. We've gone through anger, tears, grief - feelings that don't spring to mind when it comes to moving house. We're devastated. Ridiculous really. After four months of to-ing and fro-ing and then nothing - with no explanation.

Manic tidying on Friday and Saturday to get ready for four viewings. All worthwhile - we now have two offers to consider.

Will we lose the chocolate box cottage? Who knows. I really hope not, but for now the only way to cope is detachment. No more planning.

At some point, I'll stop holding my breath.


  1. Oh you poor things - house moves are insanely stressful even without nutty purchasers doing diabolical things. Keep the faith - this will all work out in the end.

  2. I really think you should exhale. Erm, now.

  3. ...will be keeping my fingers crossed for you...

  4. What an absolute bummer and how very frustrating!! Hope all goes to plan very soon.
