There's no such thing as a perfect house
PENNY PURSE STRINGS: Buyers's remorse. Who hasn't felt it before?
Maybe it's a top or dress you bought, that ended up lurking in the back of your wardrobe, still with the tags attached, never to be worn.
Or perhaps it's a larger purchase - a big flat screen TV or new lounge suite - that you later regretted dropping your hard-earned coin on.
What happens though when you have those feelings about your new house?
Buying a home for most people will be the most expensive purchase they will ever make.
So you have to be pretty sure that it ticks most of the boxes - right?
Let's face it, the perfect house that has everything you ever wanted doesn't exist.
We've built a house and still ended up with a few things we would have changed in hindsight.
We've recently bought a new home and it wasn't until we actually got the keys and had a thorough stickybeak (which, let's face it, you never feel comfortable doing before it's officially yours), that we noticed a few things we hadn't previously.
Don't get me wrong, we love our new house - it's in a fantastic location, my four girls get a bedroom each (finally) and we don't have to do anything to it straight away.
But there is no point hiding from the fact that we'll have to make some adjustments - a chest of drawers for one of the girls, something to stop the sun from streaming into our bedroom at sparrow's, and downsizing from a walk-in robe to a built-in.
We also had a tense wait to see if our double-door fridge and massive washing machine were going to fit in their respective slots.
Thankfully the worrying was for nothing.
Figuring out where everything is going to fit is all part of the fun - or stress - of moving into a new home.
It's a bit like a jigsaw puzzle.
You almost have to dismiss how things used to work in your old house and start from scratch.
Our kitchen is the main problem child, with it being about half the size of where we were living, and we still have the same amount of stuff to fit in it, which clearly isn't going to work.
I am a bit of a hoarder, so this isn't always easy for me, but during this move I've been ruthless and we've donated countless bags of stuff to charity and it looks like there will be more to come.
Except there won't be any remorse.
