Well after all the questions over past few weeks about mortgages and bills etc, girlfriend and I have had an offer accepted on a house.

Not saying too much as its still very early days.

3 Bed Semi, with a conservatory, garage, workshop in corner plot:


(Crap pic as pinched from the estate agents site)

Not sure of any completion dates as yet until hear a bit more from our solicitors.

fuck that's a big garden all the best daniel, make sure you get it wrapped up quickly as you know what can happen.

workshop and garage is a bonus! the missus can have her home to hoover up and cook and you can have the outbuildings to mess about with cars and stuff win win!

Dare I ask how much (if you dont mind), or the link to 'asking price'

Looks ace though from that picture, so much you can do with space like that, especially considering a conservatory is usually a large item in a garden and you already have one!

Seems to be taking an age for anything to happen really!

Solicitors on with searches, mortage valuer coming Thursday.

Hopefully things get moving once valuation has been done!

Started gathering lots of things, main one being my 40" Samsung LED TV!

nice one daniel.

my credit card took a hammering the first couple of weeks

bit of a pain moving in when it gets dark so early but still easy enough to sort the inside out.
