So, we bought a house.......

Han and I have been house hunting for a while now, and on Saturday we bit the bullet and put an offer in on a house.

It isn't our dream house and certainly isn't our forever home but we are really looking forward to sprucing it up a bit.  It was from a deceased estate and the couple that died were also the original owners.  We have lived a fairly nomadic lifestyle and I can't imagine moving into a house as a newly married couple and then never leaving!  (In the space of time that Han and I have been married we have lived in 7 different houses and 3 countries.)  Hopefully before we get the keys I will be able to talk to the family and ask for photos from when it was first built which is probably around 1948.

Exciting times in this household!  We are currently in the excited phase where all we can do is dream about the improvements and renovations we would like to do, without the actual hassle of living through them with two young children and organising tradespeople.

It certainly was a great way to begin 2013.

I can't decide which should go first, the carpet over the hardwood floors or the gorgeous wood on the walls?!?


  1. LOL. Maybe the carpet.... thought you could probably 'work with it' for a short while. :) Congratulations on buying a house! That is a real blessing.
