Moving right along and falling into place.

I have been gone awhile. Have been busy. And I thank God, things are falling in place.
I am moving out soon with the kids.

I was having a major headache about moving out in time and yet being able to have sufficient time for the renovation of the new apartment to my satisfaction without compromising. Despite the grace period for exit from the current home, the new apartment is just not going to be handed over soon enough.  The timing of the move was in the middle of the kids' exams, can you imagine the disruption. 

At the same time given my ex's neuroticism, I decided the best was for me to exit the house first before him as early as possible to reduce the tension all around. His allegations and threats through the lawyer about 'his' property in the current home is mind boggling, there is no civility in his response to simple requests, insults my lawyer almost as if he is going psycho. He still sits as if in authority and control. My lawyer tells me, to flick it off like a irritating fly and not be perturbed by him or for her.  I cannot begin to describe the sleepless nights and weight of worry.

He is working up to his appeal and his paranoia and interference is getting more frequent and disturbing.

For more than a month I had been searching for short term rental which is tough cos landlords prefer at least 1 year if not 6 months, on top of that I needed to be picky on location that would satisfy the three kids (school - timing, disruption, proximity etc).  And I don't need more than 3 months.

It's working out better than I could have directed myself, we've just got a rental to settle in,  during the short school break and then we'll have plenty of time to move into our new home during the long school break after their exams, and the workmen don't have to rush and I can take my time to get the furnishing.

An unseen hand, yes....

      Aren't you busy following the Olympics or getting stuck in traffic !!.
      God Bless you and yours.

    2. I am following the Olympics, but not driving much. In fact, most of London tourist attractions are empty. Most people are in east London these days.

  4. When the goings get tough, the tough get going...that's all i could think about reading urs.
    i've had experiences which felt bottomless...endless...hopeless but finally things settle down. Only thing the rough ride feels longer and never-ending but that's Mr Murphy again.
    In case u feel like taking a friendly, relaxing stroll then would love to have you on http://shivanidiwani64.blogspot.in/2012/07/come-walk-with-me.html
    Take Care

  5. An unseen hand indeed! Not luck at all that things are falling into place for you, but blessing. You aren’t just moving along on your own, but a Divine hand is extended toward you and a voice saying, “This is the way, walk in it.” (Isaiah 30:21).
    The following link I found as I looked up the verse.

  6. Dear BM:

    It has been quite some time since I interacted with you and so I stopped by. Hope you are well and that everything is falling into place. You know, at every step of our lives the unseen hand of our god is there watching and taking care of us. We are never alone.

    Be blessed and joyous.

    Joy always,
    Susan
