Decision time……

I am not good at making decisions , especially not huge life changing ones.

In reality I don’t suppose I have ever had to make many life changing decisions.

All my married life I followed my husband around, always living where he worked and in a house I never actually saw untill we turned up with the removal van

Even when the boys and I moved here we had no choice it was this or nothing.

Living here is like being on a roller coaster, we have a love hate relationship, I love it because its our home but I hate it because we are so far out of town.

Living here is just eating up my savings and in a few years time I will have no savings,and no options !

SO I have decided to put all my savings into a house and we are moving into town, it will be a huge financial struggle but it will open up so many options and hopefully opportunities.

This house is close to not 1 but 2 Tesco stores so in time I will hopefully get a transfer meaning I could walk to work 🙂

Matthew will shortly be finishing college and will be looking for work, by moving he, hopefully will not have the struggle Andrew has had.

Everything we do will be in walking distance of this house, even the train station 🙂

In Fact the house is just perfect for us, So why have I been in such turmoil 🙁

I suppose its change,the fact that I will have no savings,and what if I make the wrong decision, I cannot come running home back to my nice little secure housing association house.

BUT I have made my mind up, set the ball rolling and hopefully soon we shall move house It has to be the right decision 🙂

One thing I do know is that when I do make my mind up I always give 100%

    When I bought my house I just wanted somewhere to live, the only stipulation was that it was to be good for the kids (close to friends and school). 7 years on I love it best decision I made, and I’m sure you’ll love yours too.

    Congratulations – a big decision but a wonderful one.

    I’m also hopeless at such decisions!

    I am so pleased for you Sally. Yes, it is scary but sometimes you have just have to do it. Over the past 2 weeks, I have faced fears that I never thought I could, having risked nothing in my life. And when I thought it was all gone, it wasn’t scary at all. I felt no fear. I know now that I can face anything and any fear. These kind of decisions make you stronger. The house looks lovely. I can’t wait for your move to happen.

    Oh yes, I’m sure Geoff is right. As someone who has made a lot of big decisions, I can say that I have regretted none of them. In my experience the only things you regret are the things you didn’t do.
    It looks fabulous and it will be so good to be in town and be able to walk everywhere.
    Well done!!
