We are due to pick up the keys to the house in just three days and can’t wait.  We are so excited and are busy trying to get everything ready before we move.  Furniture wise we are just going to make do with what we’ve already got (a bed, a bean bag and my parent’s old kitchen table) but we have ordered a few new ‘essentials’ to take with us.  We’re now the proud owners of the world’s largest ironing board, a huge kitchen bin (thanks to The Boyfriend) a Vax cleaner and a clothes horse.  I wouldn’t usually get so excited but as they are our first house purchases it has been fun receiving them.

We’d hoped to have some time off from work to move in this week but unfortunately that hasn’t been possible.  I’m due to be away for three days so we’re still undecided as to when we’ll actually move in – the current plan is to spend next weekend cleaning the place and then have some time off the week after to move all our things in.

We didn’t think we had that much to move but we’ve spent all weekend packing and there is still plenty more to do…


About katerenovates

Hello and welcome to Kate Renovates - a blog about my attempts at renovation. The Husband and I have now been living in our house for four years and changes are being made slowly. It's an unloved Victorian townhouse that had been converted into two flats. Armed with a little bit of know-how and bags of enthusiasm, we have turned it back into one house and are transforming it into our home. Many of the original features remain but the flats had been rented out and so none of the rooms were in great shape. Luckily, it has a fully functioning kitchen and we recently finished the new bathroom and so things are getting more and more comfortable all the time. We're learning as we go and sharing our ups (and downs) on here as we try (fingers crossed) to bring the house back to life. I'd love to hear your thoughts on my blog or any tips you may have on our house project, so to contact me, please email katerenovates@gmail.com
