Those of you who have ever moved house or flat know how much of a complete and utter pain it is. Two weeks and 182427103 flats later (the exact number right there) and we’ve put a holding fee and offer down for a one bedroom flat a little further out of London (an extra 15 minutes on the bus). It may well be rejected as it’s under the asking price, but we’re still waiting on a response. Fingers Crossed.
It’s a lovely newly refurbished flat which even though is only a one bed, is much much bigger than where we live now. There’s even a separate kitchen! Even if it’s a little on the pokey side, I don’t care, at least it’s in a separate room to the living room.
It’s still a pain in the bum though; giving offers, negotiating, talking with estate agents, getting screwed over by your current estate agents (grrr)… I hope wherever we find we stay there a bit longer, because I don’t want to go through this again anytime soon!
On a separate, more upbeat, note (!) it was my boyfriend’s birthday recently, which gave me an excuse to go baking crazy. I decided to make him a key lime pie instead of a cake, as he prefers pies rather than cakes. I used to make this recipe all the time, but haven’t now for a good few years. So I decided to whip the recipe out and give it a go. The lime and sweetness of the condensed milk sit perfectly together, it’s magical!
