The agent contacted us this morning.

He had a chat with the vendors and they are voluntarily offering to lower the price a little.

It's a teeny weeny amount compared to the price of the house, and nowhere near to closing the gap between the asking price and the actual price we were prepared to pay for the house, but it's just the right push we needed.

I mean, Bee already loves the house, but I'm still unsure.

I don't know if it's because I've become a little more reserved after the lake house, or it's because of the fact that the house wasn't quite love at first sight for me to start with, but I was just not quite ready yet.

I'm just not sure.

About the house. About how much it is worth. About whether it's worth it.

And on top of it all, about if we really want to do this.

To settle down in Melbourne.

Sometimes when you get too close to the finish line, you start doubting yourself.

Like I do now.
