Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 293 – Wait


“Good things come to those who wait. Better things come to those who try.”

Nishaan Panwar

Thanks for that reminder of using patience, and a little effort to get where we want to, Spidey!

So, as you know, we have been waiting, patiently, for the builders and decorators to finish up work around the house, and I can finally say that it is all done!

(Pretty much.)

There have been niggles, but which job doesn’t have those?

Contractors who seem to be great, then they begin to show true colours. Trying to pass off extra costs above the agreed price, turning up late, making excuses…

But, no worries. It’s done, more or less, as I said.

We now have the joy of tidying up after them, getting the aethetics right, getting the agents round to do the valuations, then putting it on the market!

Our plans to start this project began a couple of years ago, and as we were gathering quotes and recommendations, getting geared up to actually start, the pandemic hit.

This scuppered so many of our plans, but we persevered, and got there in the end.

No point waiting for this pandemic to disappear…

Here’s to more positive steps!

So… tell me, are you a wait-er or a do-er?

Have a peaceful Sunday Peeps.  And enjoy your week!

    I’m definitely a doer. I HATE to wait, even though I know the Bible says, “WAIT on the Lord.” A preacher once told me some of his best accomplishments were done “in God’s Waiting Room.”

    What a wonderful quote! Thank you, Spidey! I love action a lot, but sometimes i am more a procrastinator, when coffee is out. 😉 Enjoy your evening, Sis! Best wishes for a good start into the new week. Michael

    Hmmm, an interesting question. On the whole I believe I am a doer with regards to those aspects of my life I singularly control. Sadly, when you are married, you are not single in all choices and decisions and my husband is a waiter.

    The delays can be a grind. Hope you finalise everything soon, and without any more headaches.
