Good news! I have a new house!
It was the news I couldn't tell you until today, as we were waiting for the agent to contact us. Sure enough she did. For those who believe there are no co-incidences, we received the phone call at 1:30pm today. On this day 15 years ago my grandmother passed away. At 1:30pm.
Nana has always been in charge of my housing prayers. She's come through every time I've asked her to, whether or not she's known what trouble/challenges I would have in that house who knows! Every path in life is an adventure that we learn from. Hardship is the sh!t that fertilises the lotus.
I was disappointed when we didn't get sage farm, but I believe that things happen for a reason, and this is perfect example. My friends who should've rented sage farm with me were just the other day accepted for a property themselves- a grade II listed artist's house in the green hills just 5 minutes drive from where they live now. It's a house we've long admired, and they not only have permission to rent, but are in talks to buy it.
So now I have a house move and a shop move in my life. I feel the old dead layers peeling away, a new dawn has come. And the sun came out just as I wrote that.
