. . . . Boy oh boy . . . . it has been an incredibly long time since I last rambled on here, but if you follow me on twitter than you may have an inkling as to why.
After 24 years my parents decided to sell the family home. This gave my brother and I no option but to seek a 'roof' over our heads elsewhere. Although we were warned that the house would be sold this year, I honestly had no idea where the heck I was going to go. I had fears that I would end up somewhere not very nice and incredibly unhappy. However I have been incredibly lucky and found a property which is not far from my old home but most importantly I AM ON THE PROPERTY LADDER! I never thought I would be a home owner by the end of 2014, but I have managed to do it. I originally wanted a house, but seeing as it is just me (with my clothes and shoes), an apartment is a good starting point and hopefully in the future I will be able to get the house I long to own.
Due to my circumstances and situation, my parents and I thought the process would be 'plain sailing', which it has been to a certain degree, but now I am stuck at the legal part which my solicitor is busy working her way through. But I am hoping this won't take too long and I will be in the property in the next few weeks (eeek!). But in the meantime I am busy pining after my clothes (I stupidly put all my winter clothes into storage - not clever when it is now starting to get cold), and shopping for little things I couldn't take from the family home, i.e. microwave, kettle. It is all rather fun however being able to plan/decorate/accessorise how I like without my mum whinging ''Put it back where I put it''.
I will update every so often with how I am getting on with everything to the point of completion/exchange. Hope this blog post hasn't been too boring either.
