All moved in … almost unpacked!

We’ve been living in the house for 9 days now and its starting to feel like home! There are just a few boxes left to unpack! Still lots of mess, as we have no shelves in our storage areas, but that will all come in time.

We were very fortunate to get a lovely living room suite from a friend’s son and daughter-in-law! It’s cosy and looks really well in the space!

There are a few tiny jobs left to finish, a little silicone around the downstairs bathroom, door stops, steps for outside and things like that.. But it shouldn’t take more than a few days.

Florence has another job lined up after ours is all done, so we’re all happy about that!

Here are a few photos I took today of the tidy bits of the house!

Moving in Update!

So we officially moved in on Sunday, but only slept here on Monday night.

Josh has been quite unwell and so we didn’t want to disrupt him more than he already has been. We were quite worried about him, and I felt that all the moving about was just too much for him. He has been very clingy, not wanting to leave my arms at all, very upset and needing a lot of reassurance. He was waking with nightmares, seeing monsters in the dark and started to want to sleep with the light on. He was barely eating and had no energy.

I hadn’t realised just how much all this moving was taking out of him so today I took him to see a new homeopath. Thankfully the remedy she gave him has so far been working really well and seems to be helping him cope better with all the recent changes. I think I felt that he was very resiliant but in reality he has been as sensitive to the stress of moving, as we all have been.

I’m just so relieved he seems to be on the mend now.. Once we’re a little more settled I will update the photos. But for now I’m going to enjoy my evening, as for once Josh is sleeping happily upstairs.

Being in the house has been a real pleasure so far. The shower is great, the kitchen is a dream, the spaces are lovely, it’s always warm and its so nice and quiet. Sound doesn’t seem to travel through the house and falling asleep last night, with the beautiful sound of birds singing and the river flowing was just lovely. When its dark you can see a spread of shining stars from the window.. Now that Josh is feeling better, we’ll really be able to unpack the mess of boxes and get ourselves organised.

I will update more soon!
