My new house!
I heard this morning after 10 days of negotiation that my 3rd offer on the above house was accepted :-) It's dated, full of painted woodchip wallpaper and needs a new kitchen. But it's clean and it's been well cared for. It has no grass in the garden (good for me but bad for dogs!) but has a large paved area at the back suitable for raised beds and lots of pots. So I can still grow veggies, just in a creative way.
This is the first house I've bought for myself. I'm so excited and looking forward to making it my own. I'm very lucky that I've bought it mortgage free but this means I have very little money left to upgrade and repair it. However I'm planning to re use as much as I can from this house and upcycle items found/gifted/bought for a song.
I've started a new blog called My Upcycled Home (see link at top) where I'll chronicle my effects to turn my new house into a special home for me and the Teenager :-)
