I have exchanged contracts. The constellation of bank, solicitor, vendor, vendor's solicitor all aligned and we finally have a commitment to buy the little old lady's house by the sea. Excellent.
We'll be in England for a couple of weeks in August, so we'll complete then. So excited.
And maybe a bit scared. This is my first grown up, proper house. With a garden and everything. And it will be lovely, I know.
But first we have to get the builders in. New central heating system, new bathrooms, an extension. Lots of ripping out and knocking down. But still, a house by the sea....
So, would you like a peek? I need to do a whole lot of before and after shots (and posts...) but for now, I thought the kitchen best sums up the order of things....
Watch this space. By the end of the year, it will be shiny and new. Something to celebrate.
(And besides, I thought you'd like to see my 4 July photos, even if they're a bit late...)
Hope you all have a lovely weekend.
