We are on the move! Again. From Bridgefoot Street to Manchester, then Christchurch, Blanchardstown, Tallaght, Pimlico and Marrowbone Lane, we've moved quite a bit in our 5 or 6? year relationship. And now we are on the move again. Why? Because we love packing.
Not really, in fact I hate packing. But it looks like this will be our last time having to do it because we have just bought our first home!
We started looking for somewhere to buy last March. We couldn't decide on what area we wanted to buy in. Dublin 8, 12, 15 and 24 all had their merits, so we set out to view everything within our budget that looked suitable.
So it turns out I'm the worst house hunter ever. Think Sarah Beanie meets over excited puppy. There wasn't a house I went into that I couldn't find a wall to knock down, or a staircase to move. I wanted to put offers in left, right and centre. And we did make quite a few offers. Luckily the market is a bit mental at the moment and we got out bidded on them all.
Two months, 31 viewings, countless offers and 3 bidding wars later, the dream house popped back up on Daft. Their sale had fallen through and the house was back on the market. We called the agent and made an offer. Negotiated in an American style fridge/freezer and 4 weeks later collected the keys.
So that's our new house. I have so many ideas, plans and pinterest boards ready for decorating it. I'll be sure to show you all in about 10 years when we can actually afford to do it all! We are beyond excited and so grateful to have found our forever home!
P.s. They left the trampoline for us!
