Planning And Exciting Times

I am feeling pretty excited right now. Dh and I have been to a meeting with a mortgage advisor today to see if the bank will help us as we want to move to Wales :D
It is something we have been thinking of doing for some time now and now Dh has a possible job opportunity there. So this time next year we may have moved!

There is a lot to do between now and then: we have to finish decorating and redecorating the house ready for selling, I need to get my skills up together to give me the best opportunity for employment when we move and we need to sell the house etc.

All being well we will move from a maisonette to an actual house of our very own with a proper garden!!

Our aim is to out our home on the market 1st March 2018, and before then there is so much to do, which pleases me, I love a challenge :)

Looking forward to sharing all our plans. Anyone in Wales? Hello! I am doing well learning Welsh and am excited I'll be able to use it in 'real life' in our many trips over before we move :)

  1. How exciting! It's hard work moving house, especially to a new area many miles away, but it will be worth all the work and stress when you're finally in your new home.

    We moved 7 years ago from a town in the Midlands to a tiny very rural hamlet in Somerset, and it's the best thing we ever did.

  4. Hi Gillie. I'm in Wales (Carmarthenshire) and we will have been here 30 years next March. We have a big old farmhouse and land, but need to downsize and have been on the market several years now (not everyone wants a house as big as ours). We are looking to relocate to the Welsh Marches/Herefordshire. Don't want to be too far away from the stunning Brecon Beacons. If you have any questions, shout out. My blog is Codlinsandcream2.
