Well, it’s the new year and there can be no more apt prompt for me on The Gallery this week than ‘new’. Regular readers will know that for me right now that can only mean one thing – new house. I don’t know what there is left to say about our new house that I haven’t said already. But for people who don’t read my blog religiously, here is the potted history of our new house…
It’s just round the corner from where we used to live and I’ve had my eye on it for years.
We knew the owners were getting old and frail and they couldn’t stay here forever, so we wrote to them asking if they would consider selling.
They invited us over to look round and we loved it even more than we expected to.
The timing was perfect as they had just found a house to move to. They agreed to sell it to us if we could sell ours. No agents, no for sale sign, just us buying it from them.
We were supposed to move in on 22nd November, but instead we moved into my friend’s empty house two doors down from our old place.
On 7th January we finally got the keys to our new house!
We spent four days painting the bedrooms and got new carpets in them.
On 11th January we moved out of my friend’s house and into the new house.
Some parts are horrible, but it is a work in progress. It is an amazing house and I’m sure we’re going to be very happy here.
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you my new house in all its glory. The good, the bad and the ugly…
