Do you ever get days where something catches you totally unawares and is like a hammer blow. I have just had one of those mornings.
Debated whether to share it on my blog, as I know not everyone who reads is the praying kind and that I personally don't want to seem like I am praying sideways!
Heres what happened I went to pay the deposit and first months rent on our new building, I signed the contract and everything is now totally legal. When I came to pay the very kind and gentle man who is renting us the building he asked for the years rent in advance!!!!!!
Now I don't need advice on how this is wrong or what I need to do, I basically sat with the man and agreed that I would get him the money by next week... I don't know why, I just did it, my head was spinning.
Now my natural tendency is to try and fix this problem, I can dip into various pots and get all the money, the major problem is transferring it over from the United Kingdom, it's also stressful because it means dipping into our personal household rent and the boys school funds, then over the year as money for the project comes in we would pay ourselves back.. hope that makes sense.
My dilemma is this: I need 11,760 euros in cash by Wednesday.
The hammer blow is just us feeling sick that we got the communication wrong, feeling fed up with our language skills and having a major stress to access all the money.
It's my son 10th birthday party tonight, a time of joy, feasting filled with the kind of madness that can only happen with 12 kids in your house, so I need this other problem like a hole in the head.
If you've got the faith please pray for us.
