So Excited!!!!

Tomorrow we pick up our keys for the house!! I can't believe after almost 4 months we are finally completing. I thought it would be nice to post some pictures of the house up because i've done nothing but go on about it, and also, you can see it as a blank canvas before i shabby-chic it all up. The house is one of the first Millenium Villages that are being made all over the country. It's an all eco-friendly community. The patio leads out onto a huge community garden, which will be fab for the children because there's a park, and only residents and their guests have access to it. I haven't put up pictures of the kid's bedrooms because they are pretty much the same as our without the balcony. We also have a downstairs toilet, which i'm actually really excited about lol.

I'm so excited today though and don't know what to do with myself. I've brought down most of our packed things, and now it's just waiting for tomorrow to come. I'm going to the carpet shops tonight to actually decide for definate what carpets we want. We are on such a tight budget though, so it won't be anything wonderful unfortunately lol.

Anyway, here are the pictures. I hope you like it.

I am really sorry about the awful quality of this image. For some reason Blogger would upload it far to tiny, and using Photobucket, it enlarged it slightly and made the pixels all fuzzy. Nevermind, you get the idea of how it looks lol.

It looks lovely, and great to have such a good "blank canvas". I'm looking forward to seeing your new home blossom.

Love and Blessings

Communal gardens are so good for kids.they get to play out just like we used to but in safety.
Can't wait to see what you do with it!

I'm so pleased for you! Is this your first bought house? It looks like an ideal opportunity to make your mark! I have to have our place replastered so there's no point in me painting which is a bit of a shame. at least you can start from scratch! Good luck with the move! Sian x
