We've Moved!

Hello, hello hello!!

It's been so long my lovelies. My apologies for being MIA lately, I do however have a fairly reasonable excuse…we bought a house!!

So since my last post (oh my god, last year?!) some pretty big things happened…
First of all, my boyfriend of nearly (at the time) 6 years proposed to me the night before my birthday. Words cannot describe how truly delighted I was. I knew after a few months of being with Guy that he would be the man I marry and now that he’s proposed I could not be happier! He really is my best friend.

However, we both agreed the wedding planning would be put on hold as we were currently renting and really wanted to buy. Buying a property has been on our minds for quite some time now so a couple of days after we got engaged we began looking.

At the time, we were told that it was a ‘buyer’s market’ which meant that buyer’s were getting great deals as property prices were slightly lower than usual. So it was fairly easy to find properties online that we liked at affordable prices. I’m not going to lie to you though, the months we spent trying to find our ideal home were an absolute nightmare! We lost a few houses to other people putting an offer in before us, which was extremely disheartening. 

The day finally came, mid-October, where we viewed a house that we fell in love with! A three bedroom detached in a family friendly estate that we initially thought was too good to be true. But after reviewing the Home Report we decided to put an offer in and were moved in by the 20th of December. 


Please note, do not move 5 days before Christmas, seriously! Stressed doesn’t even cover it!

Our Christmas tree, Lilly had no problem settling in once this bad boy was up!

We are now settled into our sweet little house and couldn’t be happier. Lilly seems to be very at home here too :-)

So that’s the main reason I haven’t posted in a while. I adore blogging and really want to get into a habit of it in 2015!


Questions of the Day:
-          If you’ve recently moved, how did you manage the stress of it all?
-          Any recommendations for future posts?
