Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas!

I hope you all had a great Christmas!  I have just had a blog catch up and it seems you all did!  We are finally settling into our new home.  I had a little panic after we moved in!  The house looked beautiful when we viewed it but not the same when we were looking at it empty.  You can really see what you have spent your money on then, a somewhat dirty, scuffed and more work than we thought house.  So it has taken me a little while to settle in but we are getting there.

Now that Christmas is over for another year we are beginning to plan what to do in the house.  The week before Christmas we had loft insulation put in which has already made a big difference to the temperature in the house.  Now where to start...  bathrooms? Fireplaces?  Kids rooms?  The other half says hot water tank!  Boring!

So nothing to show you all yet, but plenty of projects planned, hope you will enjoy the journey with me!

Have a happy new year when it comes,


  1. Glad it is starting to feel more like home. It will be an exciting year....planning and projects - although I got bored after 3 bedrooms and a kitchen!! - and then just painted over all the existing wallpaper everywhere else!! I think that most houses have more to do than you expect - but you will get there!
    Happy New Year to you.

  2. Fab stuff to look forward to then Susan...Just the house you were wanting...and you will get there eventually and then it will be time to start all over't wait to see it!!

    have a great New Year and will see you after the holidays...
