We've bought our forever home.

We completed the day I headed down to London for Cybermummy. I had my hands on the keys, but couldn't do anything with them. The following day, while I was at the conference, Andy sent me a photo of Presley and Cash who had taken Monkey and Big Teddy to see the new house. I missed this and it made me homesick, for a place I've only looked round a few times.

We physically move in on Thursday. I'm completely unprepared, but we will muddle through. Also, the removal company are packing for us so that's one less thing to worry about. Then we'll be in our new home.

We decided to move from Lancashire in October 2009. We have been in limbo since then, but no more. We can finally put down new roots, get involved in the local community, unpack, leave everything in boxes until we need something, decorate, not decorate, buy furniture, make do and just be.

I can already feel the tension and uncertainty slipping away.

We still have our rental house for another three months, so that's two lawns to cut, two hedges to trim and two lots of weeding, but we can live with that.




  1. Hurrah! That's fantastic news, so pleased for you all. I hope you have many happy years in your new home

  2. Brilliant!! That's great news. You'll be so happy.

  3. Aww that is great news. I hope you will be very happy there. x

  4. Congratulations Sandy! I hope you are very happy in your new home xx

  5. Congratulations. So wonderful knowing you are somewhere that you will stay forever and build memories in.
    We haven't managed to get on the housing ladder yet so unfortunately my Princess is likely to have a few house moves before we get into 'the forever home'
    Enjoy unpacking!!

  6. Congratulations Sandy! And a big WOOHOOH for MK! x

  7. Congratulations Sandy - wishing you all the best in your new home!

  8. That is super news, I hope your whole family flourish is such a wonderful environment

  9. Congratulations on the new house! So glad you have found a forever house (and not at all jealous that you will have no more house moves ever!)

  10. Congratulations on the new house! Can't wait to hear all about it xx

  11. Hooray!! That's fantastic news! I hope you have loads of fun in your new house x x x

  12. Oh Sandy, I am so happy for you.

    I want my forever house, I keep saying that this house was always meant to be our starting out, just married house. It's definitely not the one I see my children growing up in but here we are with two children. I will make the best for now but I always have one eye on Rightmove!
