We have just acquired ourselves a house. My first reaction is to be very scared – all that money, all the upheaval of moving, all my fears about accidentally buying a dud, all that money – combine to make me very nervous.
But it will be lovely to have our own place to potter about in. We all enjoyed that very much in Dunedin. We gardened, hung out on the deck, fixed things inside and out, and schemed schemes about the improvements we wanted to make.
That first foray into the property market turned out to be very successful. Cross fingers that this venture works as well.
