Our house - in the middle of the street

We really did it. Hard to believe, but it's true. We have bought a house of our own in Nuremberg.
We have dreamt for a long time, and we were close to believe that the dream will not come true.
But Tina didn't stop to read the ads for houses and then it went very fast. In the run of about two weeks we inspected a house in our part of the town three times. First Tina and Emma, then Tina, Emma, my parents and me and then an architect friend of ours and me.
Then we calculated and worried and dreamt and hoped. The estate agent was bothering and tried to enforce the decision.
I was decided first, well to be true my parents were first. Then Tina followed. We will see in a few years what Emma thinks.
But we will have a big, nice house (7 rooms with altogether 150 square meters) and a gorgeous garden (the property is 450 square meters).
There will be a lot to renovate but we are looking forward to it.
We can start in August and in autumn we want to move in. A thrilling year is lying ahead of us. Cross fingers for us!

Father wears his Sunday best.
Mother's tired she needs a rest.
The kids are playing up downstairs.
Sister's sighing in her sleep.
Brother's got a date to keep.
He can't hang around

Our house, in the middle of our street!

Wow! This is great news, Konrad! Congratulations to you and your family!

My husband and I are dreaming of having our home someday. But with Switzerland's high real estate prices, it remains a dream.

Thank you all for the congratulations. I was very pleased to read them.
Hallo Catrin, da scheint etwas mit dem Informationsfluss nicht zu stimmen. Aber irgendwie scheint das eure Mutter auch nicht sehr zu tangieren. Wir sind umso aufgeregter und hoffen, dass alles so klappt, wie wir uns das vorstellen. Ruf doch mal an!
