I’m selling my house and the Portuguese deal is done…all good news!

I’d love to be saying that I’m selling my house and moving to Portugal, but unfortunately it’s not that exciting.

But I have got agreement on the draft contracts I sent to the Portuguese company representative. He has sent it back with two small amendments, and I have now sent it off to the Portuguese translation service to have it properly worded into Portuguese, and then I will send draft contracts in both Portuguese and English for signing.

So that should be it, and thanks to the Portuguese translator things should be sewn up very tightly and delivered quicker than they perhaps should be. I think my boss can be really proud and it’s going to stand me in good stead for getting better deals to do for the company in the future.

But I am really excited about the prospect of moving house, and even though I’m thinking I should take it slowly, I think I’ve been bitten by the bug and I think it’s going to have to start moving now. I have the money sitting in the bank doing nothing, I earn a good wage, and there is actually no reason why I can’t upgrade.

But I think I am going to do a bit of decorating of my flat first. I know it doesn’t make much difference, but I think some cleaning up of the painting, and some touching up here and there and some decluttering could really help me to clinch a sale much quicker. I’m actually also toying with the idea of maybe renting my flat out and buying, but I think that will depend on whether I can get a mortgage for that rent.

So there’s lots for me to think about and it’s a very exciting time me. And hopefully I’ll be ready to move onto the next stage of my life. It’s tough going through this life nowadays, there is so much choice and you are under pressure to work, have children, get married, be happy, do everything, and you have about a 10 year period to do it in otherwise you can be in trouble, especially on the children front.

Anyway, that’s for another day what’s important is that I’ve made money and that I think my life is on the change.
