SUNDAY SUMMARY... WE BOUGHT A HOUSE!

Sunday, 8 December 2013


I've been really distracted the past few weeks hence a lack of posting, and the building above has been the distraction. Because... we finally bought a house!

After a pretty unsteady two years, endless fights with the family over hot water, a hell of a lot of saving, no social life for months and some help from our parents and the Governments "Help to Buy" scheme, we've managed to do it. We move in January 2014 and we're ecstatically excited yet incredibly terrified at the same time. But we can't wait and the next few weeks are gonna be complete madness, especially over Christmas (we must be crazy). It's going to be an odd final Christmas at home with our parents. But what an amazing Christmas gift to ourselves this is!

So I'll not be around much over the next few weeks... as we must go and pack our entire lives into boxes, and continue to pay out more fees than we ever dared to imagine in order to make it happen! Back soon :-)

      I have a feeling the same might happen to us... because I doubt we'll be able to afford a wardrobe for another 2 years the amount of money we've blown already lol!! Gonna be living out of boxes for a while me thinks... x

    1. Aw thanks! The Help to Buy scheme is great, you pay 5% deposit and the government lends you 20%. Means you only have to ask the bank for a 75% deposit which enables you to get cheaper interest rates, hence a cheaper mortgage. The government loan is interest free for 5 years and you have up to 25 years to pay it back, or you can pay it back when you sell the house or you can re-mortgage later on when you are comfortable and/or earning more money!

      Just enables you to take the first step on to the property ladder and work towards taking on a greater mortgage 5+ years down the line when your circumstances have changed x
