3 Cheers

November 25, 2011

Sara and Craig moved into their flat today; they are now home owners. It's been quite a journey with stress and tears and inefficient lawyers and horrible bankers and I now know why the whole property market is at a standstill, it's because it's almost impossible for first time buyers to get mortgages...God I HATE the banks!
Still, this young couple have managed it and for that their family should be thankful, coincidentally just a day after Thanksgiving, wouldn't it have been cool if they had managed to move into their flat on Thanksgiving. It's a funny thing but I have been fixating recently on things to be thankful for, rather like some scary religious fundamentalist, it's not even as if we are American but I actually like the idea of reflecting on things to be thankful for.  Mr K is the opposite, swearing about the state of the world and the fact we will all have to work until we are 101 before we can get a pension. Well, I've got a lot to be thankful for and I'll not be dissuaded from that thought tonight - 3 cheers for Sara and Craig and their first home together... Hip, hip hooray!

Oh, so that's one more hurdle to overcome in parenthood, is it?! Why is it that when you first become a mother the only hurdles you're made aware of are giving birth, bathing, feeding and changing nappies?!! We were awoken at 4am this morning to rescue DD#2 and friends from a nightclub where there was a fight over a boyfriend and DD#1 also got herself into a pickle.
