Happy New Year!
Today I had some great news to start the new year. My housemates and I have secured a new house (pics below) to rent this year which I’m really pleased about. The house will be great for socialising – it has a huge open plan kitchen/diner and a lounge set down from this with patio doors leading onto a lovely south facing garden. The only bad news? We can’t move in until July! I look forward to planning how we can put our own stamp on the property as it needs some personalising (it is a rental though – we can’t work miracles!)
We look forward to moving in in time for barbeque season (summer permitting!) and for having fun dinners with friends.
My resolution for 2013 is to start saving properly for my own place to call home. I decided recently (mainly because of the issues that come up when renting property) that my goal in the next 5 years is to buy some property. I don’t have illusions of a spacious town house by any means, I live in the super expensive South East of England after all, but just somewhere to call my own that I can decorate and modify to my hearts desire would do. My other resolutions for this year – to travel to some new and exciting places and to stay healthy!
