The Leap Year Question

The last couple of weeks have been nothing short of life changing, not to mention busy. As I wrote in my last blog, me and my girlfriend were in the process of buying a house together. Thankfully that all went through and we moved in to our first home together on Friday 19th February.

Trying to Buy a House

Not that the sellers are the problem here. Steve and his family found a house to buy and had an offer accepted within 2 weeks of seeing us. Also, their buyer soon moved out of the house in to his parents so as to not hold up arrangements. The problem now, is solicitors.
