Further to this post, sister now has a new house. She's had to pay cash because her last relationship left her with a trashed credit rating (as well as a very sour taste in her mouth) as a result of her being injudicious in trusting her fellow financially. However, with her inheritance and with a few thousand loaned to her by bellinghwoman and me, she's managed to scrape together enough money and get herself a semi, in Bosham near Chichester.

She's going to be paying us back in what she doesn't have to spend on rent.

We may decide to drop in on her on the 24th. Hey, it's not far from the house-warming we're going to already. Only the next door county, and if we're having to go south of the river anyway ...

Now I'm even more convinced your sister is fortunate in her family - and what a wretched situation to find herself in before that.

You will surely be forgiven your stockbroker when lending her a helping hand is accounted in the balance.

best to both :-)

I'm a little surprised to be honest - it's the right thing to do, and the only cost to me is effectively a bit of delay in receiving the full amount. Were we short it might be harder, but actually this year we're splashing out a bit.

(A holiday in HK - I'm counting it against a 60th birthday present. And an anniversary present. And an Xmas present.)
