We’ve moved in!

We’re here! We’ve done it! I am very tired, but over the moon. We had lots of helpers over the weekend so we couldn’t have done it without them.

I have a garage full of stuff still to unpack and already lots of furniture either doesn’t fit, or suit, so I’ll be having a garage sale or something. Time for a few new goodies I think! That’s the best part about moving – having a good cull.

There’s still quite a bit of work to do on the house over the next few months (turf, my office, fireplace, shutters), but I am looking forward to the challenge. I love being busy and I am going to love have projects on the go.

I’ve been waking up very early and grabbing the iPad to trawl through photos/online shops for inspiration. I’ll be featuring anything I buy here on my blog! So, if you have something I might like, send me an email and we’ll chat 🙂 Oh, and I share everything on Instagram so keep an eye on that!

Gotta run, the plumber will be here soon to hook up my kitchen sink! I’ve been using the laundry sink!

    How fabulous for you! We moved on the weekend too, however in with my parents until we find “the” home to buy/land to build on. Hopefully save some money in the process too!

    I stumbled accross this online shop – I realy love their furniture. Not sure if it is what you are after but worth a look!

    Have fun settling in to your new home!

    It’s great you realise how much work you have ahead of you! I was under the mistaken impression that once we moved in, we could relax! But there is soooooo much to do – and then there’s all the normal parenting and housework and work and… that’s why my husband took a few days off last week (three months after we moved in) so we could hang some curtains and paintings! I’m hoping to get some gardening done over Easter too…

    We’ve just bought our first house and we’re moving in on Friday! I’m a little scared as I have organised nothing yet :/ Oh well, I’m sure it’ll work out 🙂

  • Caroline

    How excited you must be! I can’t even contemplate how thrilled I’ll feel spending the first night in my house (which is due to be ready by XMAS.) Kind of sucks that when you move house, your furniture never really fits the new space 🙁 Enjoy adding those finishing touches – look forward to seeing all your rooms. xx
