Eerie Silence

Not sure if any of you out there in blogland like scary movies. If so you are probably familiar with the Spielbergian method of lulling you into a serene state and then WHAMMO, some big thing with lots of teeth appears making a scary loud noise and you shi.....p yourself off to the land of spilt popcorn and soiled undergarments...

Well, that is how it feels this week before settlement of our big, scary purchase of a second house. Now, I'm not really superstitious, so against the strenuous advice of many people who are, I am going to carry on flippantly about how absolutely NOTHING has gone wrong. I mean, what can possibly go wrong!? Sure, there is the massively complicated and burdensome process of financial discharge, contractual obligations and millions of little esoteric bits of paper transferring all at precisely the same moment in time, but I am confident that we can just sit back, relax and let it all happen without taking even a second to check up on it. No siree, nothing has gone wrong yet. Nothing at all.
