Happy faces at home

Its been few and far between lately. We have been so busy , sorting and unpacking its never ending. We have also been out to look at a few properties although nothing has caught our fancy. We are going to look at some more houses over the next week.

March 1st was Offer Day for all the school children moving up to senior school. We applied on line for our school choices and waited up until midnight for the email. Except it didn't arrive, the system crashed !! We stayed up a while then got up early but still nothing. Finally we got the email as we were about to leave for school and were thrilled to discover we had got our first choice. We were all delighted as the school has an excellent reputation and is rated as outstanding by Ofsted. Its such a huge worry that's now behind us. The last fortnight has been a bit surreal, a house sale and a school place. We feel that we are finally moving forward. Now things are calming down a little , I hope to be blogging some more.


  1. well done on getting the school you wanted. I think you are wise taking your time in finding another property. Are you renting month to month then?

  2. Well done on the school. Looking forward to more posts from you.

  3. Hope you soon find your new home. At least this way you are not in a chain & can take time to find the best house for you.
    So pleased that you got your first choice school, that's another big thing off the list.

  4. How rewarding to get your first school choice. Good to read that things are finally happening for you. I do hop eou find a new home soon. Our flat in Scotland still has not been sold sadly.

  5. So glad everything is going your way. Hope you find a new home soon x
