6 LESSONS LEARNT SO FAR OF HOME OWNERSHIP

We have been home owners now for almost 2 and a half years. In that time I must admit we have learnt quite a bit. To be able to afford our own home we had to relocate from Bedfordshire to Lincolnshire and we have no regrets as we love the area and we are a train ride away from bigger cities such as Lincoln, Leeds and Sheffield.

OUR FAMILY FRIENDLY BATHROOM

The bathroom in our home, doesn't need much doing to it as the previous owners, had renovated it not long before we moved in. The bathroom itself is a good size family bathroom  and colourwise I really like the tiles the previous owners had chosen. The bathroom to me is an important  place in the home as its a place for me to go after a busy and long day/week and relax. One of my favourite parts of our bathroom has to be the LED lights across the beams.  It brings a relaxing ambience to the bathroom, for when I have my bath. Blake also loves this as he is very sensory and enjoys looking at the lights whilst having his bath.
