We got a house!

First things first, the antidepressants are really starting to kick in now. I woke up this morning feeling excited, happy and content, which was lovely. I also had a glimmer of excitement about Christmas. There's a long way to go yet, but I think I'm getting there.

So, the really exciting bit! They offered us the second of the houses we didn't think we were getting. It's a proper house, with a garden.

It's got a little lawn at the front, and a really big garden at the back. It's all slabbed at the moment, but I've got far better ideas about what to do with it...

This is the back of the house from the garden.

This is the garden seen from just outside the back door.

Here's the living room. The first photo is looking towards the front of the room, and the second towards the back.

We don't need to do much to the living room, other than painting it. We're going to put in some shelves too, for the stereo, our videos and my reference library...

The kitchen leads off the living room. It really needs decorating- dark coral is most definitely not my thing!
It's got lots of storage room, though, and space for a washing machine. *gets overexcited*

Since our stove is green, we're going to do the kitchen light green, with the cupboard fronts a slightly darker shade.

The house has two bedrooms, one bigger than the other. This is the larger room, that's going to be where we sleep. It's currently painted cream on the top half and bright red below, with a little stripe of green where the dado rail used to be. We spent today putting up lining paper since otherwise the red will show through the mid-purple we're going to paint it.

Tomorrow we're going to buy the paint and get the bedroom finished, then start on the living room. Did I mention how excited I am? ;-)

I really, really, really, really can't wait until I can go back there and see it all for myself!

The way you plan to decorate sounds great and I can see huge potential for the yard.
Yay!

:D Looks excellent, Mouse! And I'm sure it'll look even better when you've redecorated and got all your stuff in the right place.
