I could barely sleep last night for thinking about submitting our offer on the flat this morning. I was absolutely shattered but I got up at 6am regardless and made my way to the gym. I worked out my full body to make up for missing last nights class which works every muscle group (one of the reasons I liked it so much). Exercise helps me a lot when I am stressed or have things on my mind, as for that period of time when you’re in the gym it’s just about focusing on what you’re doing there and then. I would never describe the gym as serene but I always feel relaxed and at peace whilst I’m there. It’s just part of my daily routine now and I’m entirely comfortable with it.
The flat went to closing at 12pm and by 2pm I’d still heard nothing. I couldn’t concentrate in work. I felt sick and was the most nervous I’ve been throughout this process so far. I knew we had put in a great, competitive offer but I also knew this was right for us. This was the flat that was meant to pop up (cliche but true). Then Brandon texted me to say we’d got it… Our offer was accepted! I was absolutely elated and shocked at the same time. I almost couldn’t believe it; I now own a home. It’s a beautiful two bedroom flat in the centre of Edinburgh. I actually could not be happier. It feels like everything in my life is finally coming together and this is just the start of a new chapter; and hopefully great things to come!
My intake for the day was:
- Nutrigrain Granola Bar
- Black Grapes
- Salad w/ Chicken
- Turkey Bolognese w/ Wholemeal Fusilli
- 1/2 Bottle of Red Wine (Celebrations were in order!)
After work, I went to get my nails done. I was delighted as they were really needing done and it always makes me feel great afterwards. But at the same time, I just wanted to get home and dance around the hall singing “we got a flat”. Immature? Yes, but I don’t care. I’m far too excited about it all.
Time for some more celebrations!
