I’m beginning to feel as you do, why put myself through yet more stress. That’s why I’d like a fairy with a wand to let it all happen with no problems. but it’s not going to happen like that is it.
I too have a small cosy house which I don’t dislike but I have wanted to move for so many years I can’t accept that I might just decide to stay put after all.
I have smiled at your words “Paint rooms in the colours that you like”. I love colour but Brian was a magnolia person, so to speak. And as I kept hoping that we would sell and it seems that rooms have to be in neutral colours nowadays (according to the programmes on TV) so I painted the rooms neutral (well almost) just in case Brian changed his mind and agreed to sell. If I keep this house I can go crazy with the paint pots now. Bright colours everywhere. Bliss.
