Korin moves out of our home today.............she is really happy and I am really happy for her - it has taken almost 6 months to get her into this house and by God it has been one struggle after another, one problem after another, very very much a negative time, but highs when she finally got her mortgage, mega lows when she heard from Cameron at the housing association that he MIGHT withdraw the property because the solicitors were at logger heads ! Well her solicitor was at a stale mate situation waiting for the WHG's solicitors to send them enquiries which they weren't prepared to do as it wasn't LEGALLY essential, but Korins solicitors were saying they were LEGALLY needed, OMGoodness it has been awful. BUT Todays the Day - we hope - just waiting for them to give key release which SHOULD be before 1 pm and then arrange for Chantel at WHG to ring and confirm a time for Korin to nip out of work to go collect Keys at her house and do meter readings etc. I have felt mega sorry for korin along the way, sorry for me too - it has been horrendous ! BUT it's happening,, hopefully today, fingers crossed - how many times have I said that during this process. Hundreds of emails - phone calls, disappointments, stress, anxiety etc etc - and todays the day - we hope.
I will miss you Korin like crazy, I know I shall see you regularly but I will still miss you being here and I know Ben will miss you too.
AND in between it all you have had to buy your car and sell your car and buy a cheaper car ! AND now on top of everything else you are waiting on the answer to whether you are being formally offered the job at Sutton Coldfield............it seems as if it is in the bag but how many times did you think you were getting the house and then you weren't getting the house and then you were getting the house and then it was being snatched away from you again, and now GOD help us ! you complete today and also find out about your new job. fingers crossed again.
more problems again waiting on solicitors who have been dragging their feet - solicitors not talking to one another, drives you crazy, doesn;t look like korin will be in before our holiday and she is already stressed stressed stressed.
lovely house so excited for her but depressing the solicitors have cocked up big time by the look of it.
~Cameron from the housing association contacted korin today to say that she can go view tomorrow morning or thursday afternoon, this means she will be seeing her new home for the very first time, emotional, and stress relief, just got to get the solicitors to put a bit of a wiggle on !
so why do i still want to ring her and find out that she is having a bad time ....... hoping she is having a bad time, I shouldn't wish this on people. I know that, but she wronged me big time and I really want to tell her how much of a shit she is ................. but I still miss having someone to moan to, someone to let rip with, Nah, i don't miss her at all, she was vile, criticised everything i put on facebook, laughed at me, was real negative. I hate Marian, BIG TIME.
Almost properly and feel thinner already ............... weigh in at class tomorrow I think, or might just keep doing it with korin as it helps to do it with others and going to class is always on my own. I hope i've lost a pound or two anyway. fingers crossed.
I'm 60 - OMG that kinda snook up and bit me bum really - inside I still feel about 30, just a terrible shock when I look in a mirror! Anyway, I am pretty proud of me self to say that I was a very successful alternative health therapist - mainly practicing reflexology but also qualified in lots of other disciplines, I also taught alternative health classes for 5 years and loved it - I particularly LOVE colour therapy and Feng Shui. AND I also did a diploma in Interior Design which I wish I had persued as a career. My current love is papercrafting, oh and papercrafting and papercrafting.
Unfortunately I had to return to a regular job in Dec 2008 in administration with NHS because of the recession ........ which has now gone on for 8 LONG years ! I can't see me returning to self employment though although I have revived my reflexology business it really is still very much part time - it's nice to receive a regular monthly income albeit doing something that I don't particularly enjoy. Sad isn't it.
