Grey Sapphire Ring ...And Other Stories
I can't quite believe that for the past 7 months, the children and I have been camping in my mum's living room. We've slept, ate, had xmas, home schooled, lockdown and worked all in one living room. I have made hundreds of pieces of jewellery from a small table I've borrowed from my mum. My son has made hundreds of pieces of lego creations on the floor at my feet. Needless to say, my mum is the star of the show for sacrificing her once very peaceful abode to complete mayhem and human occupation it was not designed for. On top of that I have been on the verge of complete breakdown. I hovered on that verge for a long time but luckily my kids kept tugging at my arm so I never went over it.
The half of my brain that is creative, is also optimistic and I escaped my woes by concentrating on my business in the hopes that it will continue to provide for us (which it has and I'm completely humbled by my supportive customers).
All this chaos was caused simply by the frustrating complexities of property conveyancy. Our house purchase fell through at the last moment in November, and my next apparently straight forward, no onward chain purchase has taken months upon months of wading through treacle. My advice - don't move house.
