When we first arrived at the bungalow two weeks ago, weary after our journey from south west France, we only had the furniture that we'd brought back in the trailer. So supper that evening was chilli served on an upturned stool balanced on a chest.
Our bed for the first night was a blow up air bed. We didn't sleep particularly well.
Day two saw the arrival of our furniture but Kat's room was dark and gloomy and overstuffed with wardrobes.
Two weeks' later....
We have a dining room. I have hung curtains since this photo was taken.
We have a bedroom...
... and Kat's room now feels light and airy since removing half the wardrobes.
Your new to you home is starting to look quite habitable - may you long enjoy living there.ReplyDelete
I hope we will have many happy years here.Delete
Little by little it will all come right. I start on my sitting room in a fortnight, exactly a year since I moved in.ReplyDelete
I'm impatient, I want it all done yesterday!Delete
It is early days and you appear to have achieved a lot in that first 2 weeks.ReplyDelete
I think we need to slow down a bit now, step back and take stock.Delete
I found you at your post about grannies tea set. We are in catering and do afternoon teas on vintage crockery and have a huge collection so that post caught my eye.ReplyDelete
Once I realised that you had just moved back from France I gradually went through your older posts and have now gone back to you making the decision and selling your house in France.
I didn't feel able to comment until I had caught up a bit on your background. I feel sure that you will soon make this feel like your home and will be happy here. It was a momentous decision, both moving to France and then moving back again. I admire your adventures and will be interesting to see your new life taking shape. You have made a start and gradually everything will into place.
I meant interested and I meant fall into place! Doh!Delete
Hello Carol, welcome to my blog. I actually used a cup and saucer for my afternoon tea yesterday!Delete
I see why the wardrobe had to come out. Things are coming along nicely.ReplyDelete
It made such a difference and there is still plenty of storage.Delete
You seem to have progressed a lot in a short time, the house looks nice and beautiful and Rick must feel good too.ReplyDelete
Rick loves the space and the freedom of the garden.Delete
A lot achieved and probably a lot still to do - that will keep you both out of trouble for a while!ReplyDelete
Plenty to do for many years to come I think!Delete
I remember when I bought my house in Brighton. I bought a cheery Chinese takeaway for us all, then we tried to sleep in the car. The furniture van arrived the following day.ReplyDelete
I think I'm too old for camping now!Delete
Snow and steedy, everything is coming together.ReplyDelete

I'm actually hoping we get some snow this year!Delete
