Saving for our own Home




All my recent posts about moving or doing up our house have made me reminisce about our own journey to owning this house and how we managed to save for it. We purchased our house in a village called Stamford Bridge which is around 10 miles East of York and if you’ve ever driven to Bridlington; then you’ve driven through it.
