Things to do today – # 1 – PICK UP THE KEYS!!

Today, finally, after starting the house hunting process back in September last year, we can collect the keys to our new house :oD

I’m up earlier than usual because I’m too excited to sleep! I can’t wait for the estate agent to phone to confirm the keys are in the office :oD

I don’t think I can contain my excitement any longer! Once I’ve got the keys I’m meeting the S.W.H. (super wonderful husband) at his work so we can go to our new home together and start taking measurements and making proper plans :oD

I’ll be back later with photos!

Talking of photos…I’ve just noticed that the photo prompt for today over on Fat Mum Slim is ‘To Do List’; I can’t actually believe it! :oD

      The lovely man who sold us the house left us a bottle of wine as a welcome to our new home so we're saving it until the night we move in, have got the kids in bed and are sitting down to relax!

    Oh wow how exciting!! Huge congratulations. I take it you're in now are you?! If not I hope you're having the best day ๐Ÿ™‚

      We gave our four weeks notice to our landlord today so we now have four weeks to get the new house decorated before we move in. I feel very lucky we haven't got to rush the move and can get each room unpacked as soon as it's decorated, only keeping back the essentials at the old house until the final moving day ๐Ÿ™‚
      It has been one of the best days and I'll be going to bed with a smile! xx
