The new house....

Good evening girls,

what gorgeous weather we've had the last few days, is this the start of our long hot summer do you think???


I have some news on the house hunt,


the sold sign is up and, we've found a new house, and I mean a "new"  house!!!

It's not a little cottage with roses round the door and foxgloves standing in the garden as I'd pictured....

but a wonderful town house spread over three floors!!!


The idea was to move to a little 2 bed house just Mr Lucey and me, but as soon as we saw this house we knew it was "the one" for us and it's just as well as Roger the lodger has decided to come  with us,  I think it was the thought of all those bills that put him off  or was it doing his own washing and cleaning???

Of course we don't need 4 bedrooms so the top floor will be a "suite" for us how posh does that sound, stop it stop it!! Or in reality the "granny floor" with a bedroom, en suite and lounge with Juliette balcony oh bliss....



Roger the lodger wanted the "batchelor pad" top floor for himself but I've hankered after one of those balconies for ages and ages, or as Roger said "you mean a door with a railing in front"!!!

I'm so looking forward to moving in and I have a plan of every how every room will look (how organised is that?)  and all the colour schemes, I see CK roses all over the bathroom so I'll feel like I'm laid out in the garden instead of the bath, and I've told Mr Lucey he's having the CK cowboy fabric in the en suite I don't care how old he is!!! I'm not realy bossy just persuasive lol.


I made this heart just so he gets the idea!


I'm off to York tomorrow on a shopping spree with a list as long as my arm for the new house, and to look for some things to go in the giveaway I'm planning as I now have 150 followers, thanks so much to everyone who follows me I realy do appreciate it,

Bye for now,

Lucey xxx

My god you couldn't get much further away from a quaint cottage! The most important things is that you are happy and fingers crossed the sale goes through! :-)

Congrats Lucey that's great news, as much as I like cottages I LOVE 3storey town houses. I too would love a country cottage but wouldn't enjoy having to maintain an older property. I can't wait to see how you decorate with all your lovely things. Good luck with the move x
