So what have we been up to?

Well, we’ve been looking for a house to live in, and it looks like we’ve found one.

We looked around a few parts of South London, including Streatham, Earlsfield and Camberwell. The place we’re hoping to buy is in Camberwell. It’s a newly refurbished Victorian four-bedroom end-terrace. The mortgage has been approved and we’re waiting for our survey to come through. There’s no chain so we could complete the purchase within a couple of weeks or so.

Vic and I are both still working at East India, so the commute to and from work will get much longer but I’m sure we’ll be able to cope.

We’ve been looking at kitchen appliances (oh the excitement!) and furniture in preparation for the move, and it’s all looking very expensive. Then there’s the mortgage protection insurance, the income protection insurance, the house and contents insurance, does it ever end?

We’ve booked ourselves a weekend off at the Bestival on the Isle of Wight at the beginning of September, which we’re both looking forward to. Hoping that the weather stays good as we’ll be camping.

Lots of bits and pieces to post about so I’ll try to get some of those done over the next few days.
