The best laid plans of mice and men .....................

Well, the buyer we have been in negotiations with for the last few months has finally had to admit that the sums didn't add up, he was trying to borrow 100% of the cost and the repayments would have been way too much, anyhoo we're back to square one  ::) The plan now is to list the business on the open market but ................... we're right up against the silly season so even if it sells quickly (which we're pretty sure it will) we're gonna have to wait till the accountants and solicitors get back to work after the holidays which is pretty much the end of January which probably isn't too bad coz most camp-sites and freedom camping areas are chockas till then. Meantime we've parked the shed on wheels up at work and are living on the job so to speak. The downside is that we'll miss most of summer before we hit the road, the positives are that we're still getting paid and living rent free with power and water on tap so to speak so we're saving heaps, no lawns, minimal housework and no commuting  ;D . We're also in town instead of living in the boonies so we've got supermarkets, shops and restaurants within walking distance and we can still up-sticks and move to the coast at night or at weekends should the fancy take us  :)
I'm convinced 90% of the software on my computer doesn't do anything except send me notifications that there's a new version of itself.

Murphy's law seems to apply apptly.
I hope things do go right, but having Gypsies camping in the front yard could be a bit of a turn off for negotiations(as in over a barrel) a fair and reasonable price.
just a weird thought
