But now it is over and we can finally go and find a new home down in Hamilton. TODAY.
If we don't find one that we want to buy or bid on... we will keep looking till we do.
Most houses in Hamilton are sold via Auction, so it could take a little while till we have something signed and sealed. But hopefully it won't take too long!
I am so ready to MOVE!!!
When we get home from Hamilton today I will show you the houses we looked at today.
We are meeting our Hamilton Estate Agent first thing this morning and looking at houses all day I hope!
Oh and THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH for your comments yesterday!!! I was amazed at the number of people who cared. ♥♥♥
ABOVE: A very happy Granddad.
4.30 pm: Home. Exhausted. We looked at 8 houses today, and have now got a short list of 3.
Here's some we looked at:
ABOVE: a lovely older home, in an area we are very familiar with. Needs new carpet, some tidying up etc, but a definite possibility.
ABOVE: This one is in Cambridge. Really HUGE... has an awesome pool and 3/4 of an acre which could be subdivided. I loved the layout of this one, there was plenty of room, masses of room in fact! It was 358 square meters of house!
We are not so sure about being in Cambridge though. Thinking about it.
ABOVE: This house is lovely, very open plan layout, but small living rooms. Has an awesome pool ... and fencing is great for kids/dogs.
ABOVE: I adore this one. It's on River Road, is one of my favourites. It's got 5 bedrooms, one would be my sewing room. It's got a gully section on the other side of the house, with a stream running through it.
I've always wanted a stream in my back yard!
So... we have quite a few to choose from... and might be making an offer on something mid-next week.
As they are ALL auctions we have to make sure of our finances before committing to making offers.
Stew will sort that out with the bank on Monday/Tuesday.
It's been a lovely day. We had lunch in Hamilton East with our Estate Agent Lou, and we found some really lovely shops there, and I plan on checking them out again.
I'm going to sign off for the day now. We are knackered. It will be an early night for us tonight.
