1 year

1 year ago today, we picked up the keys to our first house from the estate agents and started ripping the house apart to create our little house as we know it today.

The last year has actually been amazing and probably one of the happiest in my life.

We spent 3 months solid just DIYing and then moved in. During those first 3 months I despaired over why we had bought a house with so much to do on it and we never had the time or money to spend doing nice things in our new area, which was half the reason why we moved. After the first few months though it got better and I have loved living in Liverpool after living just outside Liverpool for all of my life. I've only lived here for a year but it certainly feels like home already. 

Here's to many more years!

  9. It's lovely having a place to call your own isn't it? This is our first year in the house we bought too, and it's definitely been the happiest of my life so far. It's funny how much difference it makes! I've spent SO much money on things for the house but I don't regret a penny :D Happy House-iversary!
