Shopping for a new home. Not long to go...

Hi guys,
I've mentioned it a couple of times, but now it's nearly official. We've exchanged contracts, paid the deposit, and in 14 days we pick up the key and officially become homeowners. So what have I done to celebrate? I've gone shopping, of course! Here are just some of the things I've picked up so far:  photo homesofar_zps8cf20efe.png So far I've bought new bedding and new lamps for our bedroom. A new mirror and vases for the living room. A toilet roll holder and shelving unit for the bathroom (I'm all glamour!) Mugs and my dream cutlery chandelier for the kitchen. And this is just the tip of the iceberg of all the new things we need.

As well as all the fun stuff like ordering wallpaper samples, buying new furniture and browsing through endless interiors blogs (I'm addicted to ApartmentTherapy) I've also had to start thinking like a proper grown up very quickly. Checking out home insurance comparison websites, buying life insurance, and even writing our wills. Scary! But I think it's important to protect yourself by having home insurance, and protect the people you love by having life insurance. Especially now we have little man to think about!

Right now though, I just can't wait to get those keys and move in. And of course I'll be showing you all the 'before' pictures as soon as I do!
