There is one month until settlement date on Dave’s mother’s house and then in early February we should get Dave’s share of the profit to buy our own house. It has felt like settlement would never get here but now it seems to be hurtling towards us. And it’s 2010 next week already? No freaking way! I’m trying hard not to start crossing off the days on the calendar! We’ve been looking a little more thoroughly at houses, affordable suburbs and fridge prices which is both surprisingly scary and uber exciting. Oh yes and 42″ flat screen plasma TV’s. We are so so weak.
Between the excitement of that, the stress of ‘babysitting’ my sister (who selfharms and is epileptic) I’m finding it very very hard to stay calm now. And I’m also feeling the pressure to get onto making a few things on my neverending house list.

Sometimes I have the suspicion that we’re just allowed to live here because they need us to open the food for them.
