I Bought A House

Wednesday, 18 June 2014


Huzzah!

All by myself and everything. 

Obviously this is only possible because it's a) very small, b) very cheap and c) needs EVERYTHING doing to it but still, yay! My very own little house. All that saving and not being able to afford things was eventually worth it.

I now to have to organise many, many tradesmen and then decorate the holy crap out of the place as it doesn't look like it's been touched since about 1975. Good job I like a challenge!  Hope you're all in the mood to read a few more interiors posts cos god knows I won't have any money to spend on clothes any more. It'll all be going on paint and cushions.

Yup, I'm kind ashamed to admit I've turned into the sort of person who genuinely gets a bit thrilled by cushions. There's no hope for me now.

  9. This is so exciting! Congratulations! I'm about to embark on a massive savings plan to attempt to get somewhere in the next ten years (that's depressing to type), but living in London makes it so hard!

  10. That's so exciting! Can't wait to see it. Our house was a 1970s timewarp when we moved in, we are slowly getting there but we were the same, it was the only thing we could afford! Not sure we've really grown to love our peach bathroom yet though, haha! xo

  23. Buying my first house (alone not with a boy) was the best.

    My terrace hadn't been touched since the 50's and needed gutting. So much fun to start from scratch than in a house that just needs personalising.

    Congratulations.
