The lastest copy of Lionheart Magazine landed on my doorstep the other day and I was excited to read in the editors notes that this edition is all about home; what that means, where it is and how it feels.

You see, everything is about to change in our little world – we’re buying a house. Just reading back those words feels surreal and I can’t believe this might actually happen. You know that feeling when you feel so happy and excited, but scared and anxious at the same time? Besides having to remind myself to eat, I’ve not been sleeping very well so the last few days have passed in a blur, a happy blur mind you.

It is still very early days. We have found a house and our offer has been accepted so most of it is now out of our control until we hear from the valuation/surveyor. I’ve read so many horror stories but I’m hoping that with us currently renting and the owner no longer living in the potential new house, we might be able to do this. We might be able to own our own home. We might live in a 3 bedroom house. We might, at last, be able to get a dog. All of this feels too good to be true right now, so I’m taking each day as it comes and trying not to think of the feature red brick wall in the kitchen that I love so so much! Oh my.

  1. Oh gosh, the not eating thing takes me back! When I bought my house, from the week before completion to about two weeks after I moved in, I just kept forgetting to eat. All I did was pack and unpack and decorate and build flatpack furniture, and I did it all without ever having a proper meal. I felt terrible by the end of it! So when it all gets going, try and remember to eat once in a while :)

    • Janet – I had to make myself eat poached eggs this morning rather than just a cup of tea. Need to research healthy and convenient meals I think!

  2. I’m so happy for you. I remember when you wrote that the prospect of buying a house seemed so far away. I shall keep my fingers crossed that all goes well, then you can cross being a homeowner off the ‘to do’ list and then maybe start saving up for your VW camper too!! x x

    • Thank you Cat! We’d love to get a dog but we haven’t been able to in our past rentals. One step at a time though – too nervous to think we might have a dog too! : )
