One month down..

..and with any luck, only another 119 months of being mortgaged to go. *crosses fingers*

To celebrate, I have a cold!

Stupid cold.

It’s ours!

Well; we’ve just got home from the real estate agent – the settlement part of the exercise has been done; and now we’ve got our little paws on our key. Now all that’s left is to finish up the packing for the move tomorrow…

Our House

Yes. We are buying a house (more like a townhouse, really). The offer was made (and accepted) on Friday, and today we went unconditional. Settlement date is April 22, at the moment.

There’s a courtyard:
Master Bedroom:
More bathroom:
Laundry (part of bathroom):


We just had an offer accepted on a house! (Half a house, technically: It’s a big old villa which has been turned into two flats)

It’s located down some stairs, off The Terrace kinda between Salamanca road and St Marys church. It’s a lovely, lovely place with a ton of character, and wonderful ambience: Most of it has polished wood floors, and the whole thing has a 12ft stud.

So yeah. At this stage, it’s still in the hands of the builder, valuer, city council, solicitor and bank; but so far, so good!
