    Just read your diary from scratch - exciting times ahead!!!!
    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort
    :) Mortgage Balance = £0 :)

    Just paid my last £200 in to my H2B ISA. 

    I'll request the closure of that account on the 3rd March so that my solicitor can apply for my 25% bonus for my deposit.

    Living Room

    £TBC - Wallpaper
    £200.00 - Corner sofa
    £TBC - TV unit
    £TBC - Coffee table
    £TBC - Corner shelf unit
    £200.00 - Total spends

    Uncle is going to paint and decorate, just need to figure out if I want a feature wall or if I'm just going to go for white walls and put up prints, paintings etc. I'm more than likely going to go with this option. 

    Corner sofa was a bargain, bought that off the people selling the flat. Would have cost me 5 times as much for a similar one brand new. 

    I'll update here with the plans for other bits and bobs when I find them!

    Bedroom furniture will be coming from my Mums. Just need a couple of lamps for my bedside cabinets. 

    Will probably need blinds and curtains but will wait until I am in to figure all of that out.

    Might just get this painted white and get a nice print or mirror.
