just checking in

hello there, feels like a long time since I've posted. I'd love to tell you all about the amazing house we're going to buy, but we haven't found it yet............. we've seens LOTS of not at all suitable houses, including some real horrors, and one utterly amazing and totally gorgeous absolutely impractical grade 2 listed house with NO garden - can't have that then, but it was lovely.......

at the moment we're trying to decide if we're brave enough to make an offer on a too small very ugly old bungalow, and knock the inside to bits, and add an extension on at the back, and then sit and look at the lovely big garden.

meanwhile there has been quite a lot of cake, some chocolate and the odd bottle of wine...... and I wonder why I keep getting the houses muddled up...

hopefully there'll be a decision soon, or we'll have to start looking for somewhere to rent.

back soon x


  1. Ugh, good luck - it is always worth it in the end but it is hard work while you're doing the actual house hunting and moving!

  2. :-( I hope you'll find something suitable. Renovating the house while living in it isn't that much fun.

  3. House hunting is the pits!!

    Why is it when your not on the look out you come across the most gorgeous properties and think 'I wish' but when you do commit yourself to taking the plunge it is neon impossible to find anything?!?

    Good luck and take care,

    Nina x

  4. House shopping is fun, terrifying, overwhelming, and exciting all at the same time. Soon you'll find something just perfect, hopefully after a big slice of chocolate cake and a glass of wine :)

  5. I say no to the ugly one because you sound less than enthused about it, unless the garden is spectacular and huge ... x

  6. doing up a house is VILE during it, and then after you forget all about how vile it was. Well, almost...

  7. Hope you find something suitable soon! I hate house hunting myself. I think we're going to live in this house until I die just so I don't have to look for another one!

  8. Good luck with it, and remember - however long it may seem like you're house hunting, you'll be living there for an awfully long time :D


  9. Good luck in your house search, it can be a very frustrating time but I know you will find the perfect house just for you.

  10. Hey, girlie! I am sending magical vibes to ensure that you find the Perfect House of your DREAMS. Consider it your birthday present. Well, okay, part of your birthday present...

  11. House hunting has highs and lows doesn't it? I offer tons of sympathy! Maybe you could rent untill you find "the one".................. Good luck Tess, sounds like you need all the booze and chocolate you can get!
    Love Vanessa xxx (do you mind if i knit)
