Our old and new home

It has been a busy busy week... In real life, not in blog life. And the reason for that is that we are about to buy a home. Our very first home. 

The last week we have spent much of the time going through different paperwork, calling our solicitors, signing papers, sending deposits, worrying, getting excited, planning... We put in an offer in late February and are now just about to exchange contracts. We are hoping that we will get the house keys in May. 



It will be sad to leave our current home behind. This is the house we brought our little girl home to when she was but three days old. This is the house we popped open a bottle of champagne when I graduated from my MSc. This is the house we moved into as carefree students, and will leave as grown-up parents. 

I don't have many pictures of this home, but oh how many memories are between these four walls...





Our current home holds so many memories. Happy memories, sad memories, late nights, early mornings. We have put a lot of hard graft into this place, turning it into a lovely little home. The day we leave here, we will leave with mixed feelings. On the one hand, sadness at having to close one door behind us, and excitement to open a brand new door in front of us. A new door into our new home, with space to do what we want and mold the house into what we want. 






So come May (or perhaps June, I certainly hope not July), expect to see plenty of renovation and home decor posts here in this blog, as that is all we will be doing. 

In our new (hopefully ours soon) home.
