So now the fun really begins...

Our offer was accepted on the flat. I'm fairly certain the other couples did exist (we saw one set of them) so I'm not sure why they picked us. Perhaps because I asked if the dog was included in the price? (Its not, but the oven is)

But the journey to property ownership is only just beginning. Its a long road ahead. I'm very pleased, but I'm still nervous as hell. My stomach is still all over the place (too much information I know) and I'm not sleeping well. I keep thinking in spreadsheets of expenses and budgets.

Hopefully I'll calm down soon once things start to move along. I am a worrier and control freak.

Yay! Congratulations! How exciting!

Not to put the dampeners on it but I have one piece of invaluable advice...as you are not married please draw up wills and agree now what will happen financially and with the property if you separate - the solictor will help you - I know it's not the thing you want to think about now but if it happens it's a nightmare and v. v. costly (I fell foul of it when I bought a house with my ex adn we split up)...now I'll stop being sensible and boring and tell you to go out and have a celebration vodka or three...!

I would be the same, and you have every right to be nervy, but it'll be just fine.

Very exciting times :o)
