New Home!!!


Well we did it.....we're finally in our lovely new home and we couldn't be happier!! The whole day was just a roller-coaster of emotions. We woke up early so that we could collect the van, get to the storage unit and start loading stuff in so we were ready when we got the green light. Unfortunately we then had to wait around 2 hours for that all important phone call to say the funds had gone through and we could go and collect the keys. I have to say our solicitors were utterly useless and I actually had a call from the builders before them to say that everything had gone through perfectly and the house was ours. I didn't received a call from our solicitors till an hour after we had actually moved all our things into the house!!! But anyway onto the positive things. The house was perfect and when the lady from the house development had left Dan and I stood in the empty house just looking at each other saying this is ours. I was covered in goose bumps, we had waited a whole year for this and it was so worth the wait.

After a lot of trips in and out with boxes Dan, Dave and I finally sat down on our sofas at about 9 in the evening sipping champagne from paper cups and pigging out on a giant pizza.....it was just as I had imagined it. There was something quite nice about it just being me and Dan moving ourselves in, we were spoilt for choice with helpers but we managed to do it on our own.

The house is still full of boxes but as they say it's a marathon not a sprint so we're going to do a different room as we go. We've been buying a few bits over the past few months so it's been so exciting to see them in the new place.

All we need now is to get the cat back on Saturday and our house becomes a home!

I mentioned before on Twitter I was thinking of doing some 'Room Tour' type posts to show you the bits and pieces we had picked up, what do you think?

    1. Good luck, it will be one of the most stressful but rewarding things you do! I've been thinking about doing a 'Tips from a 1st Time Buyer' post as there was so much I didn't know about. xx
