My pad…

So, this could be my new home…


A couple of days before I went on holiday to Barcelona, I went to view a flat in Castle Bromwich. That same evening we phoned the guy who owns it, and told him we wanted to buy it!

It all happened a bit fast and I was slightly dazed by it all at first but am now very excited about the prospect of having my own place (and mortgage – eek!)

In my head it is already decorated – lots of colour, patterns, cushions, shelves, books, pictures, candles… the usual girly stuff!

Its slightly frustrating that I won't be able to move in for about four months – there are some technicalities with the lease!

At least that will give me some extra time to save more money for the candles and cushions – oh and the sofa, bed, tv, fridge, wardrobe….

About me

My name is Ellie Lovell and I am the Web Editor in the Communications Office at the University of Warwick.

I started this blog in August 2005 when I started working at the University and have learnt a lot from it. I don’t update it so much anymore (I have been unfaithful to WarwickBlogs) but I hope you enjoy what is here…
