I have not given up yet

I am still looking for “the house”; it is a daily activity using up far too much time.  I get carried away researching each and everyone and in that time it is cruelly snatched off the market.  I was told by the local estate agent that its actually tourists buying all the properties in the area as a rule and not a huge local market wanting to upsize.  So sadly I am in competition with wealthy people that can afford another home, we have no chance!  So each day we make a list of properties to visit and ones we daydream about but are out of our budget, so I might have an update if I am lucky at some point. 

I am not putting my heart on my sleeve and falling in love so easily anymore, I now know buying a property is not as simple and you have to toughen yourself up for a few disappointments before finding the one.  My friend said she has even considered upping sticks completely and moving to Scotland.  I had not thought of changing countries, but I guess if you widen your search far enough I am bound to find something quicker!  I can blog from home and we would still have nice treats to review but hubbie does have a decent job here, so I think my daydreaming will not extend quite that far…

Perhaps a little peek at estate agents Scotland would not do any harm, just to see what has made my friend so certain that it’s the place to be.  I wonder what our budget would get us there, although I do not have the stomach to eat haggis I might quite like seeing hubbie in a kilt!  Hubbie would enjoy fishing though and you can even do a search by lifestyle choices on Strutt & Parker how clever is that!  If I could convince hubbie of an idyllic lifestyle with his own little boat and fishing rod he might be excited!  So far he has more luck catching fish with his hands!!!
