Exciting House Update!

I can't believe we are only 4 weeks away from being in our new house, how time flies!! It's been an exciting two weeks, our mortgage was accepted and the Help to Buy was approved so now all we need to do is sign on the dotted line and the house is ours. It still doesn't feel real. We've been waiting for this for nearly 11 months and it all seems to be happening so quickly now. I can't wait to get in there now and get all our stuff out of storage, but most of all I can't wait to get Rocky and Dave back together. We've really missed our other four legged friend and I know Dave will be thrilled to have him back so they can continue their bromance!

We went to view the house for the first time this week and it was all very surreal. I can't speak for Dan but I know that I've been holding myself back a bit with the house until everything was confirmed. I didn't want to fall in love with it and then get the rug pulled from underneath us, lose the house and then be heartbroken. Seeing everything for real and not just pictures was so weird. The house is just perfect and I can't believe that WE are going to live there! 

Our Kitchen: In every house we have lived in Dan and I have ended up spending most of our time in the kitchen and this will be no exception. What you cant see is to the right of these photos is the same sized space again for a breakfast room!

Spare bathroom: Also known as our sisters bathroom for when they stay.

On-suite: As you can see we were shocked with how huge our shower mum was so shocked she got in it!!

The Garden: My favorite bit! Still a long way off being finished. All of this space is going to be grassed and then there is a patio area just at the bottom of this photo. Please excuse the very ugly storage container, apparently all new builds now come with them. It will be great for storing our garden stuff in but god is it a site for sore eyes, any suggestions on how to decorate/disguise this will be much appreciated! I can't wait to see Dave and Rocky chilling out in the sunshine with a BBQ on the go :) 

There is still a bit of a way to go but it's such a weight off my mind now the HTB and mortgage have all been accepted. We've decided not to buy stuff until we are in there, mostly due to funds but also so we can make each room a bit of a project! 


  1. Ohh wow it looks lovely! I hope you'll be happy in your new home x

  2. Thank you Kim. I can't wait to get in there now. Especially with this lovely weather we are having, sitting in the garden with Dan firing up the BBQ sounds bliss right now!!! x

  3. It looks so pretty! Excited to see what you are going to do with the place =)
