Buying your first home is pretty scary, and one of the things that made me reluctant to start house hunting is that I thought it was going to be an almost impossible process. I’d heard many horror stories about how difficult finding the perfect home can be, and how the whole mortgage application process can be a nightmare. There’s also the risk of things falling through, gazumping, and losing money on all the fees you’ve paid out to solicitors etc. Scary.   I thought I’d share with you my story on how I purchased my first home as it’s something…

Sorry for my recent blogging disappearance! I’ve been so busy this month because as I mentioned in my last blog post, I’ve just bought my first home! So I’ve been busy doing it up and making it mine, and it’s now almost finished. Luckily it was in pretty good nick to begin with but it just needed a lick of paint and a few little things doing. I thought I’ll probably do a little blog post on each room (it’s only a 1 bed place!) and first of all I’d like to show you my little kitchen! For my latest…
