I had a lovely birthday last weekend. Dave got me tickets to go to Warner Brothers Studios near London where they filmed the Harry Potter films. He also got me a golden snitch charm for my leather pandora bracelet. He has even paid for my best friend’s ticket. We go in two weeks. We are making a weekend of it. My friend is going to drive and we are going to stay over the day before our tour.
We viewed two houses on my birthday. The first one was ok but I couldn’t picture living there at all. When we got home, we came across a house down the road from where we lived. We managed to view it and fell in love with it. Dave and I talked about it and we put an offer on it. Our offer has been accepted! We have a mortgage in principle thanks to our amazing mortgage broker and a solicitor.
We had no idea that things would move so quickly in finding our own house. The couple who we are buying the house from are lovely. Similar age to Dave and I and have similar interests. We can go and look at the house whenever we want. I explained about my job and that Dom comes round to mine each week. I can even take Dom to see the house to get him used to it. They want to meet Walter too. We have no idea when we will move into our house. But in all honesty, I am not worried about it. If anything, I am really excited. We wanted to stay near to where we live now as it is a nice area. I just didn’t imagine we would find somewhere within walking distance.
