My new home...

Wow, what a busy couple of weeks it has been. Sorry for not blogging for what seems like ages, we've just moved house which was hectic enough plus I had a large wedding booked in and had to get the crockery all ready and make what seemed like a thousand cake stands! Thanks husband, your a star! Right, so i've got lots to blog about - recent purchases from the car boot, weddings that have hired my lovely vintage crockery, my freebies from freecycle, and of course, the new house. So, i'll start with the house today! Yippee! And I will get round to reading all your lovely blogs too.
The house is great, we love it! It's a 1950s detached which I love as the ceilings seem high and I love bay windows. We've moved from a modern house to this so you can't get much different. I can't wait to start decorating it though. There is wallpaper in every room which is going to be a nightmare to strip. So I think we are just going to settle in first and `relax`, yeh right! And the best bit about living here is that the chickens will be arriving in the next month for certain. I CAN'T WAIT!!!!

Here's some photos of our move...

Our bits starting to fill up the van

We've arrived, welcome to our new home!!

The hallway... we lifted the carpet to discover parquet flooring in great condition. I was soooo chuffed! Can't wait to get it on show!
Come through to the lounge... check out my carpet!


Next the garden... we have a summerhouse! I LOVE it!


BBQ anyone?? Perhaps some apples from the trees at the bottom of the garden? Already made an apple crumble, yum!

That's all for today, i'm sure there will be lots more housey photos popping up soon. I'll be sure to add lots of before and after piccy's!
