I've done the scary grown up thing...  
I'm just back from the lawyers. With a couple of stipulations, I've accepted the offer for twenty thousand to sell the bit of my garden. The stipulations are that if he builds a new house on there it's a single occupancy house of no more than two stories and that he put up a boundary wall or fence along the new line (after it's up I'll be liable for half of the upkeep of it). I didn't think I'd be able to stipulate the first of the things but the lawyer tells me it's fairly normal. There's also the fact that I have a mortgage on part of my property so my lender has to agree to the resizing of the property, but again the lawyer doesn't see that being a problem since my mortgage is for less than half of the current value.

It's scary being a grown up, but this time next week I could have twenty thousand pounds to get me out of this hole a little way (and I can get my car back! Yay!)

In other news, I am currently wrapped up in three layers (t-shirt, shirt and padded jacket) and am freezing. Walking back from the station there I passed a guy without a shirt on. Yes it's sunny but I'm really cold. Guess I'm still not well then.

hey! Sorry I wasn't around much lately, but real life is kinda crzay over here.

So how are you? I do really hope everything is going good and this can be a fresh start!

*grins* I know the feeling - I've been pretty quiet myself lately because real life just keeps on getting in the way.

Fingers crossed this will be a new start, it'll certainly help out a lot if my neighbour agrees to the stipulations.

Yay for grown-upness!
When you get out into financial daylight again, get something nice for you.
Oh, and no more lending! K?

No more credit. Ever. *check*

Even though I'm finding it really difficult to get by without a credit card - paying for things online is next to impossible these days!

I'm thinking maybe the US SPN s2 DVDs or a Trilby as a treat. Whaddya think?

I think I'm getting there - all this worry about finances is probably having a knock on effect on my immune system right now so the sooner I get all this sorted, the better!

*is mesmerised by your icon*

I hope your neighbour goes for it Sho.

I think it is a good thing, it will help you get straight.

Hope the chills go before Friday :)

I think he will, and it's definitely a good thing. I don't use the ground, it's not adding anything to the value of my property so losing it won't lose me money and it's less ground to look after so...

Doing things with property is always scary. I remember when my husband and I bought our property and built our house. That was very freaky. Well, anyway, I hope everything will go the way you want it to and I also hope that you will get to feeling much better soon.

*fingers crossed*

In an odd way I've been lucky with property, the house I'm in is inherited and my sister had no problem with me buying her out so I've never really had to outbid anyone or anything. This is the first time I've done anything purely because of me, y'know?

It does sound scary but if it's going to help you out financially then it's good. And yay to getting stipulations in there about what he can build on the land.

It's definetly not warm enough to be wandering around without at least two layers on, at least it isn't over towards the east coast! I've got a t-shirt and hoodie on and I'm feeling a bit chilly.

It's really scary doing this - but hopefully it'll all work out for the good!

I think that guy was some kind of mandroid freak who didn't feel the temperature...

Fingers crossed that everything goes smoothly for your sale. I don't like grown up things but it will be worth it when the money comes through :)

Yay for getting the car back, poor Nicky!

Some people are just strange, they do that here, its unusual to see the sun so as soon as it appears the t-shirts are out, even when its freezing.

I love Shaun the Sheep :D
