Yes I have good news!!!!!!!
We have a house!!. We took a chance and knocked back the house that we were offered first and managed to get one where we wanted within 2 days. It's a lovely house, in a nice place, and what's better is that I've met some new friends there already - who helped us to get the house by dropping hints to the real estate whenever possible.
Whe sign the lease next week and get the keys in the first week of May.
Thanks for you support throughout!!
