Diary Of A Highstreet Conveyancer – Thursday May 21


As we head into the Bank Holiday, and what ordinarily would be a busy day, and as we come to the end of Mental Health Awareness Week, take time over the weekend to think about life and where we are going.     Many of the   chains which would have been completing at the Easter weekend are now back in place and looking to exchange with completion for next week. That is positive in that it shows that people still want to move house. Those people have patiently waiting during lockdown to move .   Be positive for them and help them to see that they are on the next stage of their adventure through life .

And this is a poem that I was sent from my daughter’s school (yes, I do have to home school as well as run a business !) – I think this is very important for us all as we come out of lockdown and try and resume some sort of normal life .   How people will market their houses,, how people will view houses, how we will interact with clients – it is all going to be very different and we need to support each other as we learn how to deal with this changing world.


“What is the real good?”
I ask in a musing mood.

“Order,” said the law court;
“Knowledge,” said the school;
“Truth,” said the wise man;
“Pleasure,” said the fool;
“Love,” said the maiden;
“Beauty,” said the page;
“Freedom,” said the dreamer;
“Home,” said the sage;
“Fame,” said the soldier;
“Equity,” said the seer.
Spake my heart fully sad:
“The answer is not here.”

Then within my bosom,
Softly this I heard:
“Each heart holds the secret:
‘Kindness’ is the word.”
