The calm after the storm

February was a crazy month!

A couple of years ago we decided to upsize our home, but with no ready cash and a very stagnant property market we realised it would not be possible. So, we waited patiently, started saving and watched the market until late last year when it started to improve. We figured that the process of looking, buying and moving would take at least 6 months and we wanted to be in a new home by September 2014. So, we put our house up for sale in early February.

In the first week it had a dozen viewings and 3 people offered to buy it. So, we accepted an offer and started to look for ourselves.

Long story short… I sold a house, bought a house, turned 40, had a very glamorous surprise birthday party and even squeezed in city break to Paris all in the space of 12 days.

And now nothing.

I was not prepared for the flurry of activity and the speed with which the first step of the process came and went. And I was even less prepared for the waiting, days on end with nothing happening, in this step.

And so here we are, doing what I do worst… waiting patiently.

Maybe getting back into my daily meditation practice will help.
