In the 70,s OH bought an old farmhouse. and we restored it with love.
Lived their happily at first but it was haunted. Lots of unexplained noises on the stairs. Items being moved and so on. Never buy an old property again.

I'm thinking big here. There are a few things I'd like to do up - a country castle, a large Georgian house in the middle of a city are two of them.

I'd really like to get my hands on the big old farmhouse which was in my family two hundred years ago but which is now owned by a 'stately' trust as is the whole area, having been bought from Lord Boyne who purchased it after it passed from my ancestor's hands.

My cousin and I both loved it when we saw it but one of the major reasons why I'd like it is so that OH could have the horses he so loves and gave up when we got engaged. (No, I did not ask him to but he reckoned he needed the money to get married.)

Doing improvements to our beloved bungalow is quite enough for me now!
I once did have a fancy for living in and doing up something really Gothic, maybe an old church. Nice and spooky!
