Can't find the Winspear one - want to see! Whereabouts is the development? Know what you mean about affording a new house

How much ??

Not that I am being nosey you understand

Evesmama Sun 24-Apr-05 22:22:31

we went to see it today(not finished yet though) its gonna be absolutely beautiful... massive sweeping staircase, hall is bigger than our living room, 4 rroms down stairs, plus kitchen, plus utility, pluss double garage with workshop, plus 3 huge full size fitted cupboards down stairs, plus huge W/C...and dont get me started on the upstairs!! or huge(wide not deep) back garden with two big old trees that they can hang a swing of for niece...not envious at ALL!!!!!

Evesmama Sun 24-Apr-05 22:23:19

i know

however, on a more practical rather than envious is far too big!, dont think they'll use even half the space!!

hey..maybe we could move in too!!!!!

hunkermunker Sun 24-Apr-05 22:35:25

How many of them are there?

Evesmama Sun 24-Apr-05 22:38:08

3 ! ! !
SIL, BIL and Niece !!!

i am really happy for them, but also depressed as she kept going on today about..."who would have thought someone from xxx like me could afford something like this"....aherm..we still live in xxx!!!

Evesmama Sun 24-Apr-05 22:56:04

off to bed to dream of ever being able to own something half as expensive!!!!

Evesmama Mon 25-Apr-05 19:13:14

well..its all thier fault...weve been house hunting today!!!!!

LGJ Mon 25-Apr-05 19:14:04

Are you mad ???

Evesmama Mon 25-Apr-05 19:19:06

of course i am!!!

not quite as much as their spending actually no where near half...but i want out of this crap hole and yesterday just made me realise how much
dont know if we can yet??have to find out if they take my I.B into account??hopefully, otherwise were stuck here

Think of all the up keep costs and cleaning, that should cheer you up!

We've just moved from a 2 bed flat to a 3 bed house with small garden and every Sunday we're tiding, cleaning, weeding, cutting grass etc. Prefer the old life!

Evesmama Mon 25-Apr-05 19:26:37

oh, she'll prob hire a cleaner too.......ME!!! to pay for the new house

KBear Mon 25-Apr-05 19:44:13

and think of the bills, the council tax, nah, small and cosy is much better!

Evesmama Mon 25-Apr-05 21:30:20

im quite happy with small and cosy..but in a better area!
