So, the dream home fell through - someone else bid a lot more than we can afford, so that's that. And because we saw that other house, we no longer want the first one either... Looks like we'll be staying here for a while longer! Oh well, there will be other houses - just not that one.
I tell myself it was probably not meant for us then - but I'm still very disappointed. I would've loved having the lake so close, not to mention the equestrian centre - but as my smart little girl tells me; we can still go there to swim in summer! <3
