It’s been a LONG time coming but at long last we will be officially moving in to our new house tomorrow.

We originally went to view the house the day after Britmums Live and I was so tired that I didn’t really take much in; we weren’t seriously looking and haven’t even had a mortgage approved! We put a very low offer in the next day and to our utter disbllief it was accepted and panic then set in – we really needed to actually do this. With just one wage in the house and my husband already owning a house, I was dubious if we would actually be properly approved as previously the bank had said yes but they are notoriously difficult in giving mortgages. But as time ticked on, we got over each little hurdle and I am naturally quite pessimistic so I kept waiting and waiting for SOMETHING to happen – but the day I had the keys in my hands I was just dumb struck.

We have had 4 weeks to move as our notice doesn’t expire until the start of October so we still have another 10 days with the keys to both but yes Saturday is the day. Van is hired (we aren’t going far!) friends and family roped in and nerves tingling. It’s so exciting but massively daunting to be a homeowner! It’s been rather chaotic trying to pack with a husband away Monday to Friday and toddler twins and school runs twice a day but my lovely friends and family have stepped in to help out, and calmed me down – a lot!

There may be a slight radio silence on the blog due to broadband cross over but I’m totally OK with that, I know the blog will be waiting when I’m back and all sorted.

Wish us luck, see you on the other side.

    Best of luck with the move, and congrats on being a homeowner. It is very exciting!!
    Make sure you have a bottle or wine or champagne on ice for when you finally move in – it isn’t every day you get to open the door to your OWN home!

    I hope the move is going well. Our last one wasn’t far and we did exactly the same as you. It takes the pressure off not having to do it all in one day. I can’t imagine being able to get that organised! Best of luck in your new home x
