Korin has been offered a mortgage - a Mortgage Offer - Yes Yes Yes ............ I cannot believe it has finally happened. it has taken 14 weeks, 14 very very long weeks.  Stress levels were so high, feel as if a weight has been taken off my shoulders and Korin must be totally and utterly elated.

Little house you now belong to my DD (well almost).

Saturday 22nd April, 2017

Keys birthday - he had lots of presents and he was happy with his presents too - and we Korin, Key and I watched a film in the afternoon and then Keir Ali and baby luna came round around 3 pm and we went out for a meal at 6 pm to Frankie and Bennys in Tamworth and had a big cake too - it was a good day.

Korins chap Johnno came too.

Friday 21st & and we are STILL WATIING

They said (the mortgage advisors) that she would have an update today regarding her mortgage - did she NO she didn't - sto we are STILL WAITING.  OMG why do they drag it out so much.

Thursday 20th April, 2017 - STILL WAITING - annual leave today

But the good news is that the valuation has passed - so another hurdle over...............suppose to have an update tomorrow.  What that means ????  is it to say that she has the mortgage or just updated to say that it has gone to the underwriters.  Korin supposed to move in on 1st May !!  that is not going to happen, her solicitor is now on holiday until middle may !  there is a stand in - but these are the solicitors that were VERY slow when they acted for Keirs house.  I am praying that tomorrow it is going to be a big fat YES !  if it is we can go and get a bit of shopping - all the little nik naks that you need in a home.  Love her little house - IF it is her little house.

Had annual leave today just to get my head less stressed really !  did have a little play with crafting, stuff I did I wasn't really happy with.  must get my room tidied up can't stand the mess at the moment.


Korin still does not know if she has a mortgage or not, this is absolutely bloody ridiculous, yes we had two days out for Easter but my God how long do people have to wait to get answers, its a week today that the valuation was done and we havent heard anything.  Please let her hear today or early tomorrow so she can at least start getting a few bits and bobs for her house at the weekend.  Praying it's going to be a yes, but all this waiting waiting waiting makes you really jittery.  Fingers crossed, I hope its today she gets a yes.

Good Friday

It was a Good Friday ......  Good Friday

Went to The Range to buy korin a stoneware pan, the kind that you don't need any oil in it, and as they were half price bought two as we needed a new stir fry pan, maybe i shall start to lose some weight now?

then to her house, we still haven't heard if she has a mortgage - GOD FORBID give the girl a break please and let he know she has the mortgage, as they have done the Valuation it is probable that she does have the mortgage, but we take nothing for granted as we have had just one knock back after another since January 7th or thereabouts.  But they have done the pavements and her car parking spaces now so the house must be very close to completion.  Can't wait to hear if she has a mortgage AND finally have  a look around the house, if she gets to look around her house, we don't know if any carpets or flooring or tiles or whatever is included yet - hopefully she will have carpets and fencing and grass in the back garden too !

my husband was talkative !!! at the restaurant - Christophers Tamworth, it was a lovely meal, but very bloated.  came home to have an hour kip as i felt so bloated and tired.

and then we went to Keirs to see them and the beautiful Luna darling.  I love that baby so so much, she is so aware now and smiling 

and then we went to the Garrick Theatre in lichfield to see a Farce called 'Haywire'  Key was asleep from the moment the actors arrived in the Studio and snored a little and my stomach was hurting and rumbling because of the huge meal at lunch time and so at the interval we came home, I would liked to have seen the rest of it but sadly I daren't have risked my stomach any longer and Key snoring any more all the way throughl.
