[ #22013 ]

Yesterday afternoon I got a call from our estate agent - our house sale has fallen through. The purchaser pulled out for a "change of heart", whatever that means.

So now I will not be moving to Canada in January. Due to the christmas house buying lull it is likely to take months now. And we had already bought our plane tickets for January (one way tickets, including booking 2 dogs and 3 cats onto the flight).

Needless to say I am massively down about this.

  • In what part of Canada did you decide to buy? I remember you mentioning Ontario, which city?

    Clayton, in Ottawa
  • that sucks :(

    Did you have a deposit from the purchaser? Or do things work differently in that respect in the UK?

    Anyway, sorry to hear. We'll keep a beer cold for ya. Oh wait, *warm*. ;-P
