Day 261 of 365: Moving AGAIN!!
After two and a half months here we have decided that in the long-term this isn't the best suited place for us. We can hear the man above us snoring like a lumberjack every night and there is a constant slamming noise from the front door every time someone enters or leaves.
We looked at a 2-bedroom terraced property near Brierley Hill last weekend. It has a conservatory, an upstairs, a back garden...and a kitchen you don't have to hold your breath to walk through! The best bit is that it is tucked away and we will have parking right at our own front door.
Needless to say, we kept everything hush-hush while we applied to let this property. There was one more couple who had viewed the house and was also interested...but as of today, we received this letter in the post that we were approved!!
Many of our things here are still in boxes, so it shouldn't be as difficult this time around. Plus, Matt will have access to the 7.5-tonner from work and by this time a week from Saturday, we will have the keys and be all moved in to our new happy home!
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
