We got the keys to our first home last Friday. Already we’ve pulled up the carpets, stripped the walls and sanded the floors. Graham and I painted our bedroom a stone brown and I kind of hate it! I might have to repaint it in a few months! The kids room took a while to strip and we had to apply lining paper, but it’s looking better now. The house faces onto a glen with a stream running through and it’s so peaceful. One lunch time I lay on the garden decking in the sunshine and listened to the birds singing, it was wonderful. I think living here will be pretty great.
I better get back to packing. It’s a stressful time just now (I returned to work the week we moved!) but we are fortunate to have good friends and family to help us.
