Right now I should be 100% focused on selling my house right? Open homes twice a week? Loads of pro-active marketing? The difficulty I have with that concept is that I've had two open homes with absolutely no takers. That's a little (a lot) disheartening. So what am I to do? Well, my answer was to go away for the weekend and ignore the whole thing. Is that wrong? Who knows. I do know that I have recharged my batteries and feel more able to do something about it now. Do you want to hear my plan? Yes? Too bad. Instead, I will tell you about my weekend away - that's much more fun.

I headed up the west coast with my friend and his sons for an overnight camping trip. I can't tell you exactly where we went as it's a Secret camping spot (deliberate capital letter there for emphasis). Anyway, it's a slightly convoluted place to get to but once you're there it's like being a million miles from anywhere. Think of a long sandy beach strewn with driftwood that stretches further than the eye can see. And huge sand dunes - fantastic for climbing to the top and then running madly down to the bottom. And crashing waves (no-one around so no need for soggy swimsuits). And birdlife chirping and cheeping. And marvellous sunsets. Gosh it was wonderful. Here's a few pictures for you (they really don't do justice to the landscape - maybe it is time for a photography course - or a better camera!).
