2014 – the year I became a proper grown-up

2014 has already been a very busy and exciting year for me, so I thought now would be the perfect time to start blogging again!

We are in the process of buying our first house which has quickly turned into our first renovation project. Originally everything seemed very straight forward, the decor needed updating but everything else was sound, or so we thought! Upon showing the house to an electrician friend, we discovered that a total rewire and new gas pipes were needed.

Despite all these hiccups, I’m very excited about owning our first home. I just want it to be finished so we can move in!
