I thought we had found our house in Longford. The gorgeous church window at the front of the house up the gravel driveway hiden among other houses. But after 7 months it is not to be, the owner is selling! So many things have needed to be fixed since we moved in and there has been a very strong odour in the house since day one. It was thought to be animal urine from the last tenants, so the carpet got replaced. Day later the odour returned and the owner refuses to investigate what it is. So she has had enough and is selling up. I guess we could wait and see if the new buyer buys for investment purposes which would mean we could stay but we don't really want to now our little home now just feels wrong. Not only that but there are not too many rental properties in this area and we really really want to stay here (well I really really want to stay here). On the upside the owner is allowing us to break lease if we find something else which I thing we have.
It is a newer styled home maybe 10 years old and brick. No character what-so-ever but very very nice, practical and neat. Enough bedrooms for all the girls (Bella can have her own which she likes) and a very big living and kitchen area. We do not have the option to buy and nor will we ever and part of me feels a bit like I have failed because I will never own my own home. But we prefer to go away to England within the next 4 years than to settle down now and buy a home at least then I will get my gorgeous english country home.
Have a beautiful day
