Surprise! We bought a house!

So after all my writing in cryptic terms I can finally tell the news that has had me bursting at the seams for the last month.

It’s been exactly one month from the day we first saw the house on the internet at our anniversary dinner to the day we got conformation that we definitely have the house!

It’s a three bedroom house only 10 mins bike ride from my boyfriend’s work. We are very very lucky (being only 20 and 21!) and my only sad thought is that as I’m still at uni I cannot live there full time until I leave uni and get a job up in the north.

Still I get to spend my christmas holidays redecorating ‘my’ (our) first house- a dream I’ve had since I was little. I’m please that we get the keys at the start of my month break as I have an exam next week and I think I wouldn’t study well if we got the keys before that!

We announced it on facebook yesterday and it’s been lovely to see all our friends and family so excited for us! I will update my blog with household renovations as we do them so you all can see them too 🙂

I must go now because I have to revise for that exam of mine 😦 and I feel quite poorly tonight 😦 😦 so I need to get an earlyish night (much rather just go straight to bed but I’m feeling really guilty for not revising this weekend!!).

One final thing, my filofax hole punch came yesterday so have now managed to fit my dividers into my diary- will post on this another time! (see previous post on filofax here)

Keswick Bag shop

Since my last post about the Good Bag co there have been a lot of updates which I should have blogged about! For example there are 3 shops now, and the range of bags has been extended even further and there are even cards with some of the designs on them too! I’ve also created a facebook page for the good bag company -so be sure to check it out and like it here for news and updates!

The Keswick branch of the Good Bag shops has been up and running since last October and is situated just off the roundabout on Main Street.

Sorry for only having the one picture of the Keswick shop- I haven’t got around to taking more- and the buckets of rain we’ve had the last couple of day when I’ve been in the shop haven’t helped me get inspired to take any!

I’ll try and get some pictures of the cards tomorrow when I’m in the Grasmere shop. As for the Brand new shop/ office in Manchester I haven’t been able to visit there yet- so no pictures as yet I’m afraid!

Right better be off- got lots of things to do, like getting orders in- the convention has made the Keswick shop rather busy the last few days!!

Just one last note- this is NOT the Bag Shop’s website so please dont try to place orders on my blog! got to the website at the top of the page and you can place your orders there! 🙂 thanks! x
