As you know this, this and this has been happening. What I haven’t mentioned is that it happened again yesterday, Sunday and Saturday. It happen TWICE yesterday. I’m completely disgusted with the entire situation and am too depressed to take photos (don’t worry that will pass). As you also know we’ve have received planning permission to extend and we will be paving the drive at the same time. Now to the bone part. On Saturday I babysat for Joy and on Sunday we had lunch at her place. We chatted about houses and what we can get for our money around this area. It’s been a while since I spent all my days looking at properties. Our conversations w/ Joy got me thinking and I started looking at properties again (insert groan from Wal here). So now I’m obsessed. I want to move! I REALLY want to move. To just illustrate how bad it is, as I sit here typing someone has just blocked my driveway (yes I did go out there and have a word with them). It is literally driving me a bit nutty. I don’t want to go out and shout at people every.single.day. I love the area I live in. It has everything you need and I don’t need a car to live here. It’s one of the reasons we decided to to extend. We drove all over South Manchester and Cheshire looking for properties. We decided that we were loooking for something we already have. It takes Wal about 15 minutes to get to work and I can be at the airport in 1o minutes. The fact that we can be at the airport in 10 minutes AND we’re not in the flight path is very important when you think of the amount of travel Wal does.
My dilemma is that Wal is totally happy extending. We’ve spent a bit of money getting plans drawn up and planning approval. He knows the area and it just makes complete financial sense to stay and extend. I KNOW all these things but the parking situation is really really really driving me CRAZY. Whenever Wal and I talk (and we talk all.the.time) I manage to insert new house/moving/new house/crappy parking/more house for our money/new house/moving into every single conversation we have. It’s driving Wal batty and it’s not going to change a damn thing. We’re here, we’re extending and I’ll just have to get over it.
