Home. For now.

When we moved to Perth we thought that we would stay with Tom's dad for a few weeks while we looked for somewhere to live.
We very quickly realised that for the first time in our lives, buying a house was actually an option for us.
We decided to stay with Tom's dad for about 6 months while we saved a deposit for a house.

Luckily, it's a 7 bedroom house! (Six bedrooms inside and a self contained granny-flat out the back).
It is basically my dream house.. Tom's parents bought it as a little 2 bedroom cottage when Tom was just a baby. The house has grown with the family and Tom's dad did all the renovations himself.

Since finding out that I will need to be on full time bed-rest the next time I fall pregnant, we have decided to settle in here for good as I will need as much help as I can get once I am pregnant! That's of course if Tom's dad can put up with us that long!

Tom's little sister Georgia (Hi Georgie!! Xx) lives out the back in the granny flat and we have the whole upstairs level to ourselves. Sophie loves waking up in the morning and running downstairs for tea and porridge with grandpa..
I love it here.

Oh what a charming looking house! I wouldn't want to leave either. But very good to know you have family to look out for you. They do come in handy! :)
