Will we live the dream?

My dream of owning a place in Spain is coming true after ten years in the planning.......This is what's happening!

I must be living in cloud cuckoo land!

So I disappeared for a while, sorry!

We have bought a lovely apartment....The next step was to get some furniture.  So we booked two weeks in February to get out and get it furnished.  I thought that one week to furnish and then the second week to really enjoy our new home, how wrong was I! 

So we hired a van for this trip...a Belingo, so that we could buy and move what we wanted.  When we collected the van, we had been given a great Mercedes Vito automatic, which turned out to be a god send as we could colapse the seats and load it to the roof!

Off we went and bought up everything we needed.  The first essential was a bed to sleep on for our fortnight and we were lucky enough to find a brand new bed and they could deliver later that day, result :-)

It was my worst nightmare doing all of this shopping, but before we flew to Spain, I wrote a list of everything we had in our house in Cumbria and took it with me everywhere we went, slowly ticking off each item.  TWO WHOLE WEEKS later we had done it!  On our last day we managed to find our dining table and chairs and we were all set.

We sat down and enjoyed what we had achieved with a bottle of champagne on our balcony enjoying the sunshine and beautiful views. 

The next day we left our new home behind to head back to Cumbria.

Now it really was a reality, I had grown up and bought some property that I had to look after and pay the bills!

Well Done. I too am embarking on a similar journey. It was 2006 but this Feb I put down the deposit and will be going out in April, to complete. Hoping to buy some pieces of new furniture when out there, (sofa bed) mainly, and all other essentials.

Might be an idea to start a blog.

Well done we made the move in July last year and have loved every minute of it. It is a different way of life and there are challenges along the way but I wouldn't contemplate moving back to the UK now x
