My own house

So this it!!! Finally after much dilly dallying.. we finally bought a house.

Last 2 weeks have been stressful.. more for A than me.. papers in order.. not in order.. in order again.. only to find one thing is missing.. so everyday, there was this back and forth happening.. in the morning we would wake up to the new problem and then say.. not happening. And then suddenly, by evening, its happening... the lawyer we had was A's friend and did his best to resolve everything!!! We owe him big time!!!!!!

We were to register on March 31st.. and on 30th we figured out another complication.. and then there was yes and no... negotiation.. then more no's... and then finally on 31st afternoon.. yes!!!!

And finally on 1st evening.. we had our house.. we got the keys!! Its an old apartment.. some 14 years old.. with really old (but solid teakwood) furniture.. and has a huge potential to be done up :)

We are happily tired... now on the lookout for someone who can help us with the interiors!!! And that's not easy.. as i am finding out.. we just started the process today. .. we plan to renovate over a period of time.. we have no money now you see!!!!

Maybe i should set up a moonshine house renovation help fund!!!! :)
