finally we have moved and are in the house after the initial problems that greeted us when we arrived (mice, floors soaked in dog urine, dodgy electrics, 2 years of dirt, broken stairs where my sister nearly broke her neck and a garden full of rubbish and poo)...the very lovely council have been sorting it all out for us so we made them lots of cakes...despite the crap start we love it here...everyone is soooo friendly, there are amazing amenities, the beach, the river, the parks, the train, the buses, the downs, the seagulls, the walks and the power of the coastal 'breeze'
the house and garden will be fabulous and once we have opened up fireplaces, life will indeed be good
lottie and i took 2 weeks off whilst this has been going on so hope to resume home-stuff soon
i have missed reading blogs (we've been offline for 3 weeks eeek!) and grabbing inspiration for lottie's life at home (and life in general)
our house: "i'll light the fire and you place the flowers in the vase that you bought today"
