On the property ladder.

It is SO fun writing about good things on my blog. It's refreshing and makes me feel really excited for a change. In my last post I talked about how stressed I was getting at house hunting.

So many of you were right. It does take time but when you find a house you love, it just feels right. So today I went looked at a house, fell in love with it and put in an offer.

The offer was ACCEPTED and taken off the market. I am OVER THE MOON!

I have wanted to move out for a couple of years but always hated the idea of renting. I have been saving for a number of years and with everything that's happened lately moving out was put on the back burner. That was until my friend said she really wanted to move out, she had enough money to buy a place but not enough to live off each month. So we discussed the idea of us getting a place together!

At first I was dubious. Lotte is one of my really good friends and I hated the idea of this making our friendship worse rather than better. The process of getting a mortgage is HUGE and quite a big decision to make as it is not an easy process to undo. However, after a lot of talking and weighing it all up. I just knew I would love living with her! We looked at 9 houses before choosing this one and when we walked in we just looked at each other and mouthed 'I love it.'

So here we are…I have a house. A real house with bricks and everything! And this is going to be my new home in a few months. It's kind of scary but so incredibly liberating too! You can see photos of the house by clicking here.

Let the house shopping begin!
