I have been feeling very down in the dumps over the house selling situation, as there has been no interest in our house. We have dropped the price yet again but the agent still thinks we should go with their recommendation. This would put it at just 2/3 of the top valuation we had and although we realize in retrospect that this was a flattering figure done purely to get our business. So I think another agent will have to be consulted.
A couple of friends have suggested I try a visualisation of what we would like to come to pass. Kim sent me a few cuttings from magazines to give me the idea, and this afternoon I finally got around to creating a visualisation board. Just making it cheered me up. It encapsulates what we want in the next home. I cut out lovely cottages and gardens, chickens, ducks, crafty things for me to make, nice furniture, a polytunnel (!) and in the centre are a family who might be like that who fall in love with our house. I am imagining them as a youngish doctor and his family, with a widowed mother who needs the granny flat downstairs. I expect some people reading this might think it is a pointless exercise, but I have nothing to lose. It is said that it is possible to influence outcomes, so I may as well have a go.
If nothing else, it looks pretty!
Oh, and I heard someone singing Fleetwood Mac's "Landslide" earlier on and just can't get it out of my head now. I found it on you tube and have been singing along - that made me feel good too . . .
