Good news! The last few days (weeks?) I've been feeling a little down because the whole house-buying-process was taking ages and at times, looked as if it might not happen at all. But progress has been made and there is a chance we'll be in the house by Christmas anyway, hooray! (It has an open fire. We can make an open fire on Christmas morning. Imagine that!)
Also I'm going out tomorrow night to one of my old favourite places ever in Belfast with good friends. The bar that I basically spent most Tuesday nights at my first year in university. Life is just SO good.
