And so we’ve finally moved. Our book are on the shelves, well most of it, we’ve actually ran out of bookshelves! My husband actually thinks our books somehow bred over night or in transit, but actually the reason for this is that the shelving that worked for our old house isn’t working in our new home, so we had to make do with what we could use. I’m excited about the idea of buying new shelves because that would mean more space for new books!
Let me introduce you to Small Hill Cottage. It’s a four hundred year old house in a very rural setting. The old village where we used to live suddenly feels very urban compared to where we are living now and I love it! The floors are uneven and sometimes when I’m standing up stairs I actually feel like I’m being tipped over. The floorboards are creaky and the plumbing is noisy. I love everything about it.
The house is perfect but we don’t have internet yet! BT was scheduled to connect us last Tuesday but didn’t arrive. They promised to come again next Tuesday, hopefully they’ll be true to their word and yes I’ve missed my little bit of cyber space and can’t wait to get back to it. I’m here right now in little T’s gymnastics club using their internet hopefully the next time I write a post it will be from the comfort of our home.
Let me give you a little tour although we haven’t fully unpacked yet, we still have some pictures/paintings to be put up on walls and wardrobes have yet to be delivered.
We have yet to find space for our books, as you can see, the shelves are overflowing.
I love the kitchen with its slate floors.
The much coveted study.
And here’s T dining al fresco.
Hope everyone is doing good … more updates from the sticks soon!
