Today’s playlist

Today it is lovely and sunny.

We’ve had an offer accepted on a house and we’re hoping to move in next month.

I am off to the Ideal Home Show in London tomorrow to look at pretty things for the new house.

Back to the start

We were due to finally exchange contracts on our new home today, unfortunately things came crashing down on Friday evening when we discovered (via text message) that 263 days after accepting our offer on the house the sellers had withdrawn the house from the market.

It was difficult news to process and I’m only just coming to terms with it and realising that we’ll be staying in our temporary accomodation for several more months. Focusing on the positive it means that we’re on the hunt for the perfect house once more …

The Return

It’s been quite a while since my last post. We’re still not in the house which has been the biggest factor keeping me from updating. We’ve had some moments of false hope that the move will happen soon and I’ve immersed myself once more in paint samples, fabric and window shopping for furniture but unfortunately things are still up in the air. It now looks like a February move date. 233 days and counting since we had the offer accepted…

Back to happy, positive thoughts about how lovely it will be once we move in. We’ve now started buying small items for the house; some gorgeous Kilner jars to store all sorts of kitchen bits in, we’ve been round the dreaded home appliance warehouse and ch0sen the washing machine, range cooker and fridge freezer, and next week we’re off to Bath to look at furniture and more supplies for organising the kitchen.

Christmas was lovely – manic, noisy, lots of food and too much time on the motorway – but lovely. Since then we’ve been enveloped in unusually heavy snowfall which looks beautiful but has caused chaos as we’re so unprepared for snowfall in the UK. The snow is all melting today so I can look forward to spring in our new home.
