So it turns out I may have just bought myself a house! It’s early days and I am not getting over excited, in fact every time I get too excited I remind myself that I am hardly going to be able to afford to live and the joy is replaced very swiftly with terror, but I have put in an offer in on a house and the offer has been accepted. I am now running around like a headless chicken being very efficient in organising solicitors, mortgage meetings and any of the other scary stuff that I have to organise in a bid to fool people into thinking I know what I am doing and am not majorly freaking out!!!
O well a slightly late birthday present but I’ll get more use out of it than those really lovely sparkly shoes that I very nearly bought, but now can’t because I am buying a house!
