Always in a rush

When I want something doing, I want it done last week; I am not renowned for huge reserves of patience.  I like to snowball things, get them done and dusted and then move my focus on to the next project! 

We have given up the house hunt and plan to re-mortgage instead.  So with that I need to track down a solicitor that can move fast, I do not want to call and coax them lots to produce the necessary paperwork, I want a solicitor that can speedily sort out our legal work.  Local firms are lovely and very amenable but I want a firm renowned for moving fast.  Otherwise I would just be a pain badgering them for updates and getting hubbie to ring them to nudge them along.  Generally making a nuisance of myself quite frankly!

I am dreaming of the new work in the house, it’s a very modest house at the moment, but the plans will elevate its status somewhat.  It will never be grand but it might at least be more accommodating.  Sintons Law look like a suitable place to usher things along, like most parents I am always juggling a million different tasks and letting the solicitors just get on with their work, without chasing will mean I have more time to do what I need too!  Like catch up with a million outstanding reviews… eeeek!

Then it’s just the small matter of getting quotes, picking a builder and living in the resultant chaos whilst the work goes on!  Hmmm maybe I need to write a list, I love writing lists.  They always seem to make everything look more manageable and achievable.  Although after watching a few episodes of the TV show Cowboy Builders I am understandably a little apprehensive…

Hmmm sorry I had a more mature builder in mind!


Thankfully though I have been researching tips to avoid dodgy builders so that combined with an efficient solicitor I should be all sorted!!!  Wish me luck.
