Completion Day (Number 1!)

We've done it! It's finally ours! We completed the purchase of our very own plot of land last Tuesday! For those of you who haven't been aware of all the ups and downs of this purchase, it has been going on for 10 months and has been one of the most stressful and frustrating things we have ever done (so far!). We will try not to make this post too Oscar-speech-like, but there are a few people who have been absolutely fantastic in their advice, guidance and support; our solicitor, our fourth mortgage advisor (yes, fourth! They kept leaving for some reason.....!), our architect, Richard, and last but by no means least, Katie's Mum and Dad who, even though they thought we were mad to keep going with a purchase with so many problems, didn't tell us that until the end!

We're currently breathing a huge sigh of relief before meeting with our architect next weekend to talk foundations, building regulations and materials. But, most importantly, we will be able to go and stand on our plot and jump up and down!

We will also be able to take some photos which we will then post on here.
