LETS MAKE THIS HOUSE A HOME

Crack open the champers and do your best happy dance… WE HAVE THE KEYS TO OUR BUNGALOW.

So the adventure begins right here, right now folks.

I attempted to take some photos of the place but who knew taking photos of rooms could be so flipping hard? I mean hats off to estate agents, they do a bloody good job.

So I did a little video for you instead. Besides, appaz ‘vlogging’ is where it’s all at nowadays. Sigh. What happened to good ‘ol writing? Jeez I sound like an OAP. I apologize for the rubbish filming/editing – it has caused hours of frustration and mini tantrums on my part.

So just before we watch my masterful piece of filming (lols) I don’t think I’ve been clear about this point yet – I am completely and utterly in love with our new bungalow. Yeah, freakin’ in love with it. And even in its current yucky ‘smells like cat wee’ state, I still want to be there every hour of the day and soak up all its cuteness. So here it is, our new home.

I had to film it all quite quickly because Max was doing lots of glaring at me which basically meant:

‘WHY THE FLIP ARE YOU DOING THAT WHEN YOU COULD BE SCRAPING WALLPAPER’ 

Soz babe.

In case you hadn’t figured it out, we got a hell of a lot of work to do. The type of work that’s gonna drastically reduce my Gossip Girl intake per week. Weep.

We’ve already torn up the yucky carpets, stripped wallpaper, torn off all the skirting boards and what not. But we’ve got a hell of a long way to go yet.

The whole place is being pulled to shreds before being put back together again. It’s like a giant, really complicated, house sized puzzle. We’ve got a chimney that’s coming out, a wall that’s coming down and the whole place needs rewiring & re-plumbing. The list of jobs is as long as my ASOS wish list. So yeah, pretty darn long.

To some people, that might seem a little daunting but we’ve got a whole team of super-duper people behind us giving us a helping hand. (You guys know who you are, and I will love you for forever and a day and buy you endless amounts of biscuits).

You probably think we’re crazy right?

Yeah, I don’t blame you. But it’ll be lush once it’s finished, promise.

Watch this space.
