Well here we are, we're in. Living at our new house, well it's already feeling a lot like home, we just need to go back to the old house and pick up the cats to make it completely home. They did a Houdini yesterday and vanished through the cat flap before we could grab them (yes it was locked, but Toby discovered if he bashed it enough he could get the little locking dial to turn around....clever boy, you have to admire his commitment to escape).
We left them some food and their little beds and set the cat flap to one way, hoping that when we go back this morning for the other hen house they will both be there.
I love my new living room clock, a present bought with some money Mum gave us for a housewarming present, it shows us that we have time, time to do all those little jobs that are left undone, without worrying, time to enjoy visits with Mum and Dad, time to live, to laugh and to love. Time to be.
The presents that I bought Lovely Hubby for Christmas, silver frames for the pictures of his Mum and Dad and those dearest to him are sitting on the windowsill, bringing family into the home.
He bought me some beautifully turned handmade wooden bowls that are now sitting in the living room and kitchen, these pressies were all carefully packed away after opening at Christmas and saved until now to make this house our home.
Thank you to all the Bloggers, commenters, lurkers, family and friends that have sent lovely comments and emails welcoming us to our new home. Special thanks to Sara, Simon, Iris and Fern for their lovely card, the very first one to arrive, it has been sat on the mantlepiece in the newly decorated kitchen since it arrived, giving us hope that we could persevere with the redecoration of the house and really make it our home.
Special cards from special friends - thank you.
Each and everyone of you that Follows, comments or contacts us through this Blog is considered a friend, thank you for being there for us, through thick and thin, through laughter and tears, adventures and discoveries and most of all through the fun and love that permeates our lives so deliciously. I hope you realise how very welcome you ALL are.
