Sorry I haven't posted for a few days but I've been getting my knickers in a twist again about another house I viewed. Right area, heaps of room, but lousy view, overlooked by other houses and with a tiny, north-facing garden that I couldn't have bird-watched in at all. I know I've been spoiled by living at Mr G's place, big and detached with its huge garden. Now I want it all, and have gallon-sized requirements on a pint-sized budget.

The agent has just rung and I said no, I didn't want the house. He sounded completely taken aback. An identical one is for sale in the next street for £50,000 more. Maybe I AM mad, but if I bought this one, it would be on the market again within a year... Or would it buy me some time to sort out my belongings, get my social life back and think... ? Lottery win, I really need you right now!!!

Have you ever written down the qualities you want in a house instead of seeing and attributing all its cons?

-nice to have

Apparently most pepole know within ten minutes of entering whether or not they really want a house or not. It's like falling in love. Trust your instincts - and good luck!

You know I asked for a lottery win? I got £5.50 in the Euromillions. Oy, you up there. Try a bit harder on my behalf next time!!!
