So the big news is, we’re buying a house!
We’ve found one that we both really like, is in our price range and has ample room for fishing rods and yarn!
We’re putting in the offer today and if everyone crosses their fingers it will be accepted and we’ll both live happily ever after.
I’m not naive enough to think that this will just happen. There’s still mortgages to organise, equity to leverage and a lot of things to work out even before we can consider it a done deal. My previous house buying experience was horrible, complete with smarmy real estate agent, lost paperwork, and months of house hunting. So it can’t be any worse than that.
I don’t want to provide a link to the property in case we do buy it and then the whole Internet has my address, but here’s a little teaser.
I think I could get quite used to this view. It is a very happily situated house.
I’ve also set to work on a cushion for my youngest brother.
He’s moved into a place with some mates, and it’s definitely lacking some homely touches.
So I’ve done one side, and am still to decide what should be on the other.
I don’t know what I’m more excited about, a pantry, not hearing children (or pigs) running above us, or that I will have natural light!
I think the natural light wins.
