    I have had a letter from the council this morning. It is a 3 bed house on the brand hew development in Birstall!!! This is a 5 minute walk from every single member of the immediate family, across the road from Kayleigh's school, 2 minutes from where we used to live, and miles away from this poxy 2 bed flat we're in!!! :lol:

    It is through Nottingham Community Housing Association, and the council have nominated us for it. So there is still a chance that they may turn us down, but the woman at the council has said that she's never known that to happen as they have an agreement only to pass suitable tenants details on.

    They have been told by the developers that it should be completed mid-March, so we will be able to move in at the end of next month!!

    I haven't stopped smiling all morning, and have been in tears on the phone to Stu! :lol:

    Charlie can have his own room!
    The dog can have a garden!
    Charlie can have a bath in a bathtub and not the kitchen sink!
    I'll have kitchen cupboards that close!
    We'll be able to park!
    We can have carpets!
    There'll be no mould in the bathroom!
    No 10 mile round trip for Kayleigh's school twice a day!
    She can go out with her mates after school!
    I can walk to all of my friends houses!
    We can decorate!
    I can finally buy a new sofa!
    We can hopefully eat at a table and not off our laps!!

    Do you think I'm a bit excited???!!!! :wink: :lol: :lol:

    Fantastic news!!! At last!!!!

    Sounds like a really nice place to. Ideal location and a modern build, so no scummy old estate.

    Cool news that its not a long wait either! are you going to wander down there and have a look?

    I know! They're still doing them! :shock:

    I saw one of the old ladies this morning and told her and said that I would have been really pissed off if they were still doing them when I got the letter. :lol:

    I was singing to Charlie this morning "Charlie's going to have his own room!" and "Charlie's going to be able to have a big bath"!!!

    I haven't told Kayleigh yet. She was babysitting for her friends nephew last night and stayed there the night. She's going to freak!!!! :lol:

    I'm popping down on my lunch!!! :D

    I'll let you know what it's like. I've even got the plot number so should be able to find the exact house and not just the street.

    OMG!!!! :shock: :shock:

    I drive down, was just getting out of my car, and who should pull up but one of my friends!!!!! She is in a similar situation to us, and has also had one of these houses offered!!!! There are only 3 x 3 bed houses, so we are going to be neighbours! She's plot 42, then there's plot 41, then we've got plot 40! We were hugging each other and screaming in the middle of the street!! The workmen think we're nutters!!!!! :lol:


    Anyway - photos!! There's a downstairs loo which I didn't get a pic of as well!! :lol:

    This one is Ruth's, ours is next to the £300k house with the scaffolding up!

    wow looks really nice, cool that you will know one of your neighours too!

    Do you know if because they are still building it, you can specify wall or carpet colours, a lot of the time, if they have someone lined up to go in, they will let you have a say in the decor.
