Another squirrel




We are on the cliff edge of waiting for our mortgage application to be approved. If it is, then great joy and celebrations will ensue - limbo and uncertainty will be over.  If it isn't approved, we'll have uprooted ourselves for nothing and wasted a lot of money in the process. God knows what happens then.

At the moment there is nothing to do except wait and work. Thank goodness for the salvation of work.

Hey Gretel, my fingers are still crossed, even though I just feel in my heart that the house will be yours!

Meanwhile, little Suzie is fantastic. She's got personality and is bound to find every acorn that she'll hide in the coming weeks.

I have a terrible time trying to be patient. Ever since I was a small child. I wish the best. And that is one adorable squirrel there.

Fingers crossed for you and your new home-to-be.
Suzie is a darling in every detail, I love the balanced curve of tail and arch of neck.

(Can't tell if blogger accepted my last comment, so here goes again, with feeling)
Suzie is a darling. I think sometimes our best designs come out of the necessity of distraction from worries.
Fingers crossed for you and your new home-to-be, which must surely be wanting you there to grace the space with love and creativity.

Hi Gretel,
Your squirrel is charming!
I've been watching the little red squirrel in our yard gather our hazelnuts and run off with them!
I'm hoping you hear positive news very soon about the mortgage so you can get settled and totally enjoy your new surroundings!

BumbleVee said...

Oh, I hope it all goes according to plan for you and Andy

.... we are doing something similar with waiting to get organized with the line of credit ... seeing as the reno went over budget..... and why wouldn't it? What doesn't these days?

Twiglet said...

Hope that mortgage soon sorts itself out!! Little Suzie is adorable. At least you have something purposeful to do during these foul wet days. I hope it's not been to bad for you over your side of the county. x Jo
