I'm just jotting down some thoughts, but I know some of these will come out negatively, but honestly, I'm happy!
We both feel they process has lost that initial excitement because it took far longer than it needed to due to some annoying and incompetent lawyers.
It's weird because I feel like I should be over the moon, but I don't really feel that right now. There are times when we're ecstatic and other times when we feel crippled with the sheer amount of things there are to do! Maybe that is normal, but with it being our first home, we don't really know!
When we popped into our new, deserted, empty house, it was amazing. Walking through the threshold was awesome - this is ours!
The previous owner has been amazing. He left us a card with our neatly piled collection of assorted keys and documentation. He was organised, sorted everything out and left the place in a great condition. We have no complains about him, he went above and beyond in some aspects!
We met a neighbour for the very first time - a guy with 3 kids. His wife was out. They seemed very nice! Thank god.
I'll probably talk about some other thoughts regarding the house quite soon!
