Sorry to have taken a little while to get back to you. We have been sifting through our emotions over the last few days and unfortunately the house will be put up for sale. We could not find another solution, but we are trying to look at this as a new adventure, and hopefully in 2 years time I will be working full time, the kids will be extra happy and we will be debt free (fingers crossed).
We have had one agent through to look at it and I will be ringing some others during the week to get organised. I am hoping that with the market the way that it is we will get the price that we need to. I have to say that although this is very stressful it is sort of a relief to finally have an answer one way or the other, and now we can start to move forward. We are both extremely sad that we have failed at this one aspect of our lives after 10 years of building and living in this house. Hopefully the next owners will love it just as much as we do. I still havent cried but I am sure I will when we have to leave. It has been a strange 2 days to say the least with feeling relieved, and then feeling stressed and overwhelmed by it all. A few people have had us in their prayers and I thank them for that, even though the outcome wasnt the one that we wanted for ourselves or our children. Paul and I are trying to look ahead though and I have to say that I have only ever really lived in 2 houses, my parents and the one that we built. Lots of memories are in this house and I shall cherish them forever. I think over the next few days I shall start taking pictures of the rooms in this house so I wont forget what we had. I havent really spent time doing the things I want to here but now it is not going to be ours I guess it makes you realise that you can have everything one day, and then nothing the next, and yes it can happen to anyone. Thank you everyone who left caring and wonderful comments for me, I cherish them all and they have made me feel very cared about too so I thank you all for that wonderful feeling.
Tomorrow I will post about the exciting and cheering up day I had with my sister at the Stitches and Craft show today and a few famous bloggers that I saw, and I even got the chance to talk to one too.
