Dying to know what OUR BIG NEWS is?!

I’ve hinted at it in this post, and this one here, and I’ve been dying to share the exciting news with you all officially but didn’t want to tempt fate/jinx it before it was all confirmed… And here is is – finally – I’m proud to announce that:


Okay, I lie – it’s not really a zoo (but imagine!)

It feels like the size of a zoo now that we’re overflowing (literally) in our current home, but really it’s a beautiful, old house in Howick (KZN) that will soon be home to our particular species of animal ;)

There is still a tiny bit of admin to be sorted with the sale but looks like we will be moving into this absolute dream of a house this June. Yes, JUNE! As in just over a months time!

We first viewed and fell in love with this house around this time last year and I immediately pictured my family growing up and growing old there. I cant explain the feeling I had about it – I just KNEW and despite nearly losing out on it 2 or 3 times, and the fact that it took us nearly a year to buy, it is finally ours (and even still, it doesn’t feel real!)

What does it look like?

Picture high ceilings, wooden floors, space and beautiful lighting – can’t wait to show you more but in the meantime, here’s a taster (estate agent pics I nicked from the web listing so excuse the quality and obviously the decor/furniture etc is not ours…)

      Thanks J, we have NO furniture so it’s going to be pretty empty for a while but everything else is in decent condition so very lucky on that front :) SO exciting!
