So we have been madly searching for a house, I have felt a little like goldilocks going into people's houses too big, too small, too lime green (a kitchen), too expensive and then ahhhh just right. We have found a house.
It took a bit of negotiating as we don't want to move in until the end of the month and they wanted us in earlier, blah blah, but it has been settled, we have paid the holding deposit and they have said yes.
It's described as
Lovely country style home .....Neat and tidy 4 bedroom single storey home, built ins to 3 rooms, separate lounge and dining, family and sunroom, ceiling fans, internal laundry, single lock up garage plus carport, shed, carpet and tiles, pets negotiable
It's old, but I love old homes they have a soul that new houses don't yet have. They have character and not just in the "yeah she's got a great personality" way but in the it feels like home way, like grandpa's jumper. There are a few cracks and old paint and carpet but with 3 and 6 year old boys I don't want anything new anyway. And it's huge, it's probably twice the size of our current house, it has high ceilings and is sprawling so it feels like we have space as well.
It's a house for having friends over and entertaining, which I have missed because we have lived in houses to small to really have parties.
God is good, we have always had the right house turn up at the right time and it has happened again.
