Our new home
I haven't been here for a long time. In the last couple of months I have been very busy offline. My husband and I have two houses at the moment. We are renovating our house on the island and we are going to put it up for sale in the future. We have rented a very cheap house and we live in that house at the moment. The house that we have rented used to belong to an old man who was ill. The house and the garden have been neglected for many years, and it will take us a lot of time and money to fix everything.
We have removed the wallpaper in the living room and we are repairing the walls at the moment. The kitchen and the bathroom are very old, and some of the things need to be repaired or replaced but we can't afford that at the moment. We are going to renovate one room at a time and we hope to buy this house when we have sold our house on the island. Right now we have to spend our money on our house on the island. That house is almost 100 years old, and the basement is not a pretty sight. The walls are very ugly and there is a hole in one of them. The basement has never been renovated. The original high level toilet still exists and there is a very, very old pantry. My brother will repair the hole in the basement wall, the staircase etc. We have already talked to a real estate agent,and she will come back when we have renovated the house. She is pretty optimistic. The house isn't perfect, but the location is great. The beach and the shops are within walking distance and the area is beautiful.
Most of our things are still in boxes, but when we finish the first room in the new house (the living room) we
will be able to unpack some of the boxes. I look forward to that. We still have a lot of work ahead of us, but we
are happy to get away from the house where the neighbours were driving us crazy. It is wonderful that we don't
have to listen to their constant arguments and their loud music.
