Apologies for my sudden unexplained disappearance, life has been very strange and all consuming of late. Just as the summer holidays got ready to kick off, after over 3 months of waiting we were told we would be ready to exchange on our first house purchase, it's been a long time coming, we've been looking for 2 years, offered on 5 different houses, but finally it seemed as though we were actually going to be buying a house. However just as we were in the throes of packing we heard that the vendors we were buying from had pulled out. It was annoying and frustrating, but not the end of the world, these things happen. Unfortunately though, as we'd told our landlord we were buying a house, he is now expecting us to move out. We found ourselves with 2 weeks to find another place to live. Obviously there is no way we can buy a house in that short amount of time, so we're having to rent again. There was one 3 bedroom house to rent in the area, which we'll find out today whether or not we'll be able to have. It's all been so very stressful and exhausting, but I keep reminding myself to stay positive and really there could be a lot worse things happening than this.
One big thing that has lifted my spirits is the viewing of house on Saturday, a house which is just so perfect for us. We'll be making an offer today and we're keeping everything crossed that finally our luck will start to change. In the meantime, I'm going through all our possessions reorganising it into stuff we're going to need for the next 6 months and stuff to put into storage until we finally finally get a home of our own. In the meantime, I'll be over on pinterest fantasising about interiors!
Wish us luck!
