OMG - what a week!
we started the week with a house buyer ...
on thursday morning Graham got a job offer in Adelaide (hurray!!!!) ...
on thursday afternoon our EA had phoned to say that our buyers had pulled out of our house sale ...

... so we are ending the week with a job offer and a crisis.  We need to be in Adelaide asap but we cant go until we sell the house!

To steal an appropriate quote: This is a crisis. A large crisis ... it's a twelve-storey crisis with a magnificent entrance hall, carpeting throughout, 24-hour porterage and an enormous sign on the roof, saying 'This Is a Large Crisis'.

What would you do?!
There have been so many ups and downs this week that i feel like an emotional wreck.  I have gone from feeling like everything was coming together to being in tears in the space of one phone call.  I have gone from being philisophical about things outside of my control to working myself into a state about what i could have done differently.  I have made myself feel ill by letting things get to me that i should have let wash over me.
So it now time it sort myself out again.  Graham has a job offer(!!!) which it would be stupid to turn down.  This means that we need to be in OZ by the middle of December at the latest.  We have a house that HAS to sell before we can go.  So there it is - in back and white (or whatever colour you have your screen set too!).  So the plan is - get rid of the house at all costs and get on a plane for Oz.  Quite simple when you look at it like that.  Just got to actually work out how to accomplish it now!

Congratulations with the job and commiserations with the house. Something will turn up - can`t he go ahead and start work if the house doesn`t sell?
