We bought a house...!

Sooo...despite the fact that i told my husband i wasn't ready to house-hunt yet, he found a good 'un! It had an open day as the vendors wanted a quick sale, so we went to see it (along with A LOT of other people) and we were lucky enough to have our offer accepted! I still havent quite got my head around it yet...its definitely a project house, so there's a lot to think about.
It was built around 1860, although i think a lot of the original features have been removed over the years (*sob*) - and the decor currently stands somewhere between the 1950's and the 1970's, depending on the room in question.
I think we will need to be prepared to spend our money on boring things like new windows, electrics and heating etc - but that hasn't stopped me from excitedly pinning some ideas on Pinterest!
It's the one on the right...with the ugly trees

The house looks amazing! On a whim, I went to Boden with my nearly-at-its-limit credit card, + guess what, the boots in grey are not available for 3 months! And, they are excluded from the discount! Not meant to be (for now):)
