"We've Only Just Begun" - Carpenters, 1970

Well, we're homeowners!

All of the monies flowed as they should have, and we picked up the keys to our home at noon at the estate agent's office in Banbury! The agents gave us a bottle of champagne to celebrate. We stopped for a bite of lunch on the way back to the car.

So, we still had out bottle of champagne with us when we went into McDonald's. (And by the way, we don't go to McDonald's very often; we go there occasionally as a treat!) John commented that the situation summed us up as a couple. McDonald's...along with a bottle of champagne! (And no, we didn't crack the bottle open with our burgers!)

Here's John during lunch (taken with my phone, so the quality isn't the great)...


(Click on this -- and any other images -- for a larger version.)


Then we headed for the house. John took a few photos to mark the special day...



Here's the front of the house...with my car in the driveway, for the very first time!




And here I am in the back garden!




Finally, here's photo taken in the living room, showing the view out to the back garden. (That's one of my favorite things about the house...the view of the garden from both the living room and the kitchen.)

That's it for now. Tomorrow, John's mum is driving over from Swindon to come take a look. I can hardly wait to take "Mom" on a tour!

Have a great weekend, everybody!

Janet

Happy Day! Looks like a very nice house and the garden looks manageable too.

Looks great! I wish you both years of happiness in your new home. How was the champagne?

Congratulations on your new house. I remember driving through Banbury on our way from Cheshire to Oxford and thinking it quite nice.

What an unusually blue sky that is in your photograph.
