After waiting 6 whole months, I have finally completed on buying my very first house! When my offer was accepted in January I had no idea it would take so long and be such an emotional roller coaster of a journey. Obviously a lot of people told me what a stressful process it is, but I think it’s one of those things you never really believe until you go through it. Or maybe I was just being a bit cocky.
I always like to think I go for the easiest options whenever possible, but that clearly isn’t true. While I was overjoyed and relieved to not have to deal with solicitors anymore, 4 days after completion it’s holiday time. Great timing.
Mentally and physically I’m definitely ready for a break. I currently have a million and one things I want to do all at the same time. I’m hoping a bit of time away in the sun will put me in the right frame of mind to come back and be a boss at being a first time buyer!
In the mean time, I’ve pretty much panic bought and packed for a lovely girly holiday so hopefully I’ll be able to pass for someone who has their life together while I work on my tan!
