A peek at our new home

Back in early March, I wrote about putting an offer in on a house. If you follow me on Twitter, you'll know by now that our offer was accepted! Its still early days but I am really excited and can't wait until we know it is officially ours. 

We know that the seller is slow to respond to queries and that a previous attempt to sell it fell through. Luckily neither the seller nor ourselves have a chain so its a case of sitting it out and waiting for everything to come together. We know that the mortgage company carried out a valuation a couple of days before Easter but that is as much as we know, so I hope that they were happy with everything! 

The previous owners had added two extensions over the years so the inside is a slightly odd layout but its light and bright with plenty of windows and space. It has been stood empty for a couple of years but is generally in good condition, its just in need of some modernising and lots of redecorating!

Before having children I wasn't fussed about having a garden but since the girls came along my thoughts have obviously changed. The garden area is a decent size with a large patio and a small grassed area. 

It feels so exciting to know that we will finally have a family home of our own, I really cannot wait to get stuck in to making it ours. I have lots of ideas that I have been collating over on Pinterest and it will be great to finally see them come together - I already have the girl's playroom planned out!  The conservatory is at the back of the house and runs the width of it with two doors opening up outside. I can already imagine sitting in there early in the morning with the doors open, a cup of tea at my side looking out at my pots of flowers and enjoying the peace before the girls awake..... sigh. 

We're lucky that D is very good at nearly all things DIY so we shall be doing everything ourselves.  So, I should warn you that there is likely to be lots of home related posts coming up!
