Raise your hands if you’re a terrible blogger? *Raises both hands*. I fully admit that since re-launching this blog, my head hasn’t been in the game. I launched it with the intention of documenting our house buying journey as well as sharing food and lifestyle reviews and general blog features. It’s clear to see from the lack of posts that this has not been happening. Who knew that being a first-time house buyer could be so time-consuming? Not me!
On 7 January, we had our offer accepted on our first home. On 13 February, we received our official mortgage and skip forward to now, we’re not much further amongst solicitor enquiries etc. The most frustrating part is that there’s no chain involved, we are first time buyers and our seller is going to be renting somewhere so in an ideal world this should have been an extremely quick sale. We thought that it would have been simple and were expecting to have been settled in by now. Unfortunately, that’s not the case.
One thing that I have learnt from this process is that patience is key and there’s no use stressing over a situation that I can’t control. The delay also means we’ve had a couple of extra months to save which has helped too. For now, all that we can do is sit back and wait for certain enquiries to be answered and for the contracts to be ready.
So here I am, back to blogging and hopefully for good this time. Watch this space for a new name, theme and launch…Exciting times!
