My family came to our temporary house yesterday for a bit of a birthday celebration.
They were all pretty amazed at where we are. The house is amazing really and their reaction has just made me even sadder that it’s so temporary. I love it here despite vowing not to get attached!
The kids explored the garden – and found an outside toilet I didn’t know we had!
And the house was proclaimed – “the best ever for hide and seek” But my poor son was picked last because he doesn’t really get the rules and happily shouts out “I’m under the bed!” And if he’s spotted where you rushed off to then he’ll out you too!
But it baffled people – why can’t I just stay here until I get a bid accepted? The system is a bit strange. I’m here – in a house perfect for us – but it’s temporary. Until my application is processed and it’s accepted I haven’t made myself intentionally homeless. My case seems so simple to me. A no-fault section 21. A possession Order from the court. How have I intentionally created those? And what baffles me is that they had this information from the start. They saw the section 21. And they took copies of the Possession Order so had the relevant information for almost 2 weeks before I presented at the office on my last day. They could have missed this ’emergency housing’ step surely?
But my logic doesn’t match theirs. I am just the person living through the multiple moves after all.
But the consensus was I’m one lucky girl! (girl was a push.But I’m clinging to it now…) sigh. It is a lovely house though..
Can I eat cake for breakfast by the way? It’s carrot cake. That’s healthy right…?
ps – there was nothing available for me to bid on this week. Not allowed to go for 2 bedroomed places and there was no three beds on the list. Hopefully next time…
