Hi friends! :)

As you may or may not know by now: 

We did it!!!! :) We finally managed to grab a gorgeous flat before someone else! The renting market really is vicious and every man for himself. That suits me quite well. I can be a really evil cow when necessary... Ha!

There's an odd mixture of elation, terror and other emotions I can't identify taking over my body and mind. I woke up drenched in sweat at about 5am this morning, feeling absolutely petrified.

Our new home is a converted house. We have our own street entrance but live on the first floor, and oddly have a patio garden! The flat was converted 18 months ago and is absolutely gorgeous - especially the kitchen! There are 2 double bedrooms, so I get to have a study/girly room which is SO exciting. Oh, and there's a dishwasher which obviously is the ultimate luxury! The garden is perfect for Lily and we're looking into enclosures etc to keep her safe. It's going to cost us £900 a month, so right at the top of our budget but it's everything we wanted so it's alright.

We have a provisional moving date of the start of September but it could be earlier.

What creeps me out a little is that right at the start of this saga I said that we'd end up living on this road. What's that about?! Ha...

I'm really sad to leave this flat. I love it so much, but I know this path is one I should follow so I need to be brave and roll with it. 



  1. Congrats! scary/exciting as it must be. Currently looking at the moment so feel your prior pain.

    1. Thank you lovely :) best of luck with your search, hope it comes to an end soon for you!! Xx

  2. HUGE congrats! I know it is a scary/exciting thing but just think of all the great things you can do when you are moved in together. My son just moved in with his girlfriend and they are loving it.

    1. Thank youuuu :) I'm trying to keep focused on the positives and remind myself that history won't be repeating itself. Planning my girly room is helping lots with that, sooooooo exciting! Wishing your son and his girlfriend lots of luck in their new home! <3 Xxx

  3. Congratulations!!! :) You won't be far from me we will have to meet for coffees! :)
    It'll be a big upheaval but I bet you will settle in no time at all, it'll be worth it.

  4. Congratulations! Moving can be stressful but as long as you organise your stuff as you box it up you'll be fine :) Just think about how lovely it'll be relaxing in your new pad once it's all unpacked! xx
