We're back from a wonderful weekend away, staying with family and having a lovely meal together on Friday and then the next day going back to Maenan and another viewing of our new home. We measured up to see whether the couple of pieces of furniture that we are taking with us will fit and we think we will get away with it - just!!
We walked the boundaries of what will be our land ...
.... peered down through the lush woodland to see the views and road beyond.
We spotted our nearest neighbour, up through the woods and then nestled down in a dip across the field that she owns.
We spied our house through the trees as we walked the fence to check it out, it's all in good condition and should be fine without renewing for now, although it may need to be strengthened before we let pigs loose in the woods in the future. We had a good few hours chatting to the current owner and asking questions about the house, land and area.

And then we drove into Llanrwst, the nearest village, to sit, chat and plan just what we want to do to the house and the land over a cup of coffee in this wonderful tearooms.
Have you ever seen a house so covered by nature. All sorts of climbing plants give this wonderful tea rooms a shaggy coat of green, it will be wonderful to photograph over the seasons as it changes colour. Called Tu Hwnt i’r Bont (Beyond the Bridge) it was built in 1480 and is absolutely gorgeous. You can see a bit more about it HERE, I just love the feel of such old buildings.
Now we are back home and even more fired up for our impending move. There's lots to do this week as hopefully, weather permitting, over the weekend we will be doing our final car boot sale of this year. We will have to leave our weekends free for all the other things we need to do with the purchase of our new house now progressing so well.
So I have decided to join in with Elaine's '100 Things in Ten Days Challenge' over at Mortgage Free in Three and try and find another 100 items to jettison ready for the move, only I only have 6 days to do mine :-)
But you know me .... I like a Challenge.
