I referenced in my original post that I had recently 'half-moved' - well now I've fully moved! And let me tell you, it has been stressful!
We sold our house in the summer and completed in early November. We had found a house but had a survey which was pretty damming and even the surveyor advised against purchasing it unless we had a large financial resource (which we do not!). So it was back to the drawing board of finding a new home, but we progressed with the sale of our original house and moved into my parents in the first week of November.
In late September we found a gorgeous house in a great location that had literally just come on the market. We put in an offer after the second viewing and it was all go from there.
After much stress and chasing of solicitors, we finally got the keys to our new dream home on 11th December 2015! I've put up some pictures of the empty spaces and will provide updates as we progress.
