Our Big News

I have been trying to keep it a secret in case it all went wrong but it really looks like we are buying our first house together!! 

new house 

I have always rented and my husband owns a house about 15 miles away but let’s it out as I never wanted to move so we decided we really wanted to move to a house that we can properly call ours and also one that we can extend for our family. 

We have found a lovely house which isn’t too far from where we are currently but it’s closer to school, town and also my sister and Dad. It has the most amazing huge garden for the kids and whilst like for like when we initially move size-wise it’s pretty much a like for like (it does have a utility and bedrooms are slightly bigger) the same, the scope for extending is huge. 

The neighbours have converted their loft to have an extra bedroom and ensuite and the potential to extend at the back without losing half the garden is just perfect to have a huge lounge and swapping the current lounge for a playroom. 

I’m so excited about it all and am hoping we will be on the move in the next couple of months so expect a lot more interiors posts as we finally get to call our house our own! But I will keep the cork on the champagne until we have the keys in our hands – ever the optimist eh?!
