The first document was signed tonight! The first of many… it is after all Belgium we are talking about. Our offer was accepted more than a month ago (so I guess that was really the first document), and now we will have to wait another two months to get the official access to our new home! Fingers crossed!
We are moving 350 metres by car, or 66 metres by foot 🙂
And we will have the best neighbours, our friends whose apartment we have been renting since November last year (we lived here for 1,5 months last summer as well), as they are coming back in August. Who would have thought this, in November 2010, when I was contacted by an old class mate who had discovered thanks to Facebook that we were living in the same city / country! Since then he and his wife have become very close friends of ours, and we are hoping that their little daughter and V will become the best of friends! So far V seems to be more interested than M, but that’s probably due to the age difference of almost 4 months…
The apartment needs new paint and new floors (we’ll see if we can save the wooden floor in the living room but it is “bubbly”, and there is fitted carpet in the two bed rooms), a new kitchen and a new bath room plus double glazing… But nothing is super urgent, we can move in as it is.
