I have not given up yet

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 up-size. 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 budget,
so I might have an update for you 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 you are 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…

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!!!
